Louie Bellson

Easy to write about my favorite drummers, however finding 10 may be difficult:

My prerequisites: Has to show a love for drumming, more importantly a love for music and incorporating drums into the music. A musician first, a drummer second.

1.) Louie Bellson
I have never seen, in person, someone who so loved playing the drums and at the same time, could play so fast and accurate with a smile on their face.

I saw him at North Texas State in the early 1980s. About the same time Gregg Bisonnette was playing in the One O'Clock Jazz Band. Gang, it doesn't get much better than that time period.

2.) Jeff Porcaro
He played with every single successful radio band of the 70s and 80s. He pioneered beats like his shuffle on Rosanna. I know Purdee and others did that stuff too. But Steve did it on the radio when I was growing up.

3.) Dennis Chambers

Can anyone say, one hand? Fast, as fast gets. Jesus tapp dancing Christ!!!!

3.) Steve Gadd
50 Ways to Leave Your Lover and Late in the Evening. Nuff said.

4.) Stewart Copeland
Because he sounded different than everybody else when he came out. And he played fast. And his snare sounded awesome.

5.) Carter Beauford
A musician first, a drummer second. You have to listen in order to get what he does. And what he does is better than about 99% of us drummers out there.

6.) Teddy Campbell. He’s tight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H40bIwMa9hk

7.) Me. I have an ego.

8.) This guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DVbt5W-DNc

9.) Animal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0h4a0AcJ5s

10.) This 12 year old http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0_OkH30BXA
