My Top 10 Drummers

by Jeanine
(Cologne, Germany)

Pierre Moerlen

Pierre Moerlen

A list with examples of playing:

1) Pierre Moerlen of Gong. You only need to listen to "Master Builder" from the album "You" and you will go "Wow!" Sadly died in 2005.

2) Christian Vander of Magma. A real powerhouse. I once saw him do a 45 minute drum solo, and it was not boring for a second. Only he can pull that off.

3) Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru. Perhaps the most versatile drummer of all; he has played all kinds of styles including free jazz.

4) Christisn Burchsrd of Embryo. He can play incredibly complex stuff; he was trained in the Indian style of drumming.

5) Pip Pyle of National Health, Hatfield and the North and several other bands. Sadly died in 2006.

6) Jon Hiseman of Colosseum, The United Jazz and Rock Ensemble, Paraphernalia and others.

7) Andy McCulloch of Greenslade and (on one album) King Crimson.

8) Carsten Bohn of Frumpy and many other bands.

9) Bill Bruford of Yes, King Crimson, Earthworks and Bruford.

10) Curt Cress of Passport, Atlantis and Snowball.

I could name many more, and on another day this would probably be a different list. The top 3 would however probably always be included.
