Portnoy, Ulrich, Aldrich, And Mason

by thematt



Mike Portnoy should be at least in the top five because he kicks ass on a lot of the mentioned above.

Lars from Metallica should be number one, simply because he showed them all how to do it. Phil Collins was good, but I think he paid someone to be on this list, don't get me wrong, he's a god for his music.(that's withe a little g).

The drummer of 'YES', should be up there in the five. As should Mr Aldrich who played for Whitesnake, should be up there.

Nick Mason, what can I say? Totally awesome, Live at any concert, he rocked it with a whole lot of talent and also showed a lot of influence on how to play.

As for the death metal bands, talent is found from a load of anger, and bloody good drugs.

Hey! Wall of the five names are amazing dusters no doubt. Collins and Portony are wonderful. Nice blog, but it's so much to the point. The thing is, in research paper writing company Services, music industry is a major topic of discussion. In which all the field related to music is discussed. and Drums and dusters are also a major topic of discussion. You can find so much on them there.

Lars Ulrich #1? You need to get out more often. Listen to a Death albulm with Gene Hoglan, or Slayer with Dave Lombardo... He can't touch either of them, or many others.
