My Favorite Rock Drummers

by Chris F.
(Kingston, Ontario)



Keith Moon - Now I understand his limited technique, but nothing sounded better than a Who song on the radio. Like Ringo and the Beatles you cannot think of Who songs without him.

Topper Headon - with Tory Crimes the Clash are powerful punk/garage band. With Topper they are tremendous

Bernard Purdie - didn't know his name, but early Steely Dan AND Aretha? Okay one of my favorites too.

Al Jackson - time is tight.

Levon Helm - perfect for every Band song.

Stevie Wonder - he could do it all, including play perfect drum parts.

Jerry Alison - Peggy Sue, Not Fade Away, etc.

Max Weinberg - Darkness on the Edge of Town

Jody Stephens - O My Soul and all the other perfect songs of #1 Record and Radio City.

I've read the book and really enjoyed it. I like the idea of some exercises to do at the end of each chapter.

This is an amazing article about some oldy goody stuff. Monni has a very different style. He was not that much famous as he should be. But whatever he did was great. The way he beats his drum and all it was amazing. I really enjoyed this blog. Great stuff
