Re: This is the BEST DRUMMER making music today!
That death metal vid is funny and almost true!

Tony Royster is really good, but I haven't really heard him play with a good band.

Neil Peart...yeah he's consistently ranked number 1 in the magazines...but I cannot dig his style. He's got chops but they don't hold the same power as Danny Carey, but that's all opinion of course. It might be his band's tendency to drift into SUPER-LAME territory, even if they are amazing musicians. They are almost as lame as Dream Theater, who also has a badass drummer.

Guys, I think I know what I am talking about here, I AM the resident GLP drummer dude.

I have played pro for years, all styles and genres.

There is no "best" period. All drummers (and all musicians for that matter) hear music interpreted differently. That is the beauty of it.

Now, don't get me wrong. I worked for Drum magazine in the mid 90's and I remember all the mail we got in care of Neil due to the double tragedies he had endured. I love him for all his creativity. But Neil is not the best. Even he would wholeheartedly agree there. A very humble guy.

For my money, the pro's here on GLP will agree that cats like Steve Gadd, Vinnie Coluaita, Dennis Chambers, Steve Smith, and the more fusion-based guys are "the best" or "most proficient" at their instruments.

My actual favorite of all time? JEFFREY PORCARO. The man with the golden groove. Jeff had chops for days, but played for the song mostly - simple but SOLID. His playing made the music FEEL good. That is what is missing today so much in music. That feel.

Too much autotune, too much digital editing shit.

Anyways, that is my two cents. It is tough to rank guys or judge creative talent in my opinion - so let's just appreciate all drummers and what they bring to the table.

I can agree with the fusion-based statement. They tend to play melodies rather than beats. Show me a good video or something from one of those guys.

I think Bill Bruford is also one of the best. Check him out in this King Crimson classic. The jam session starts at about 2 minutes. I wish there was better quality of it to stream.

That's so patently untrue that it hurts me to even respond to that statement.

Carey is good, but hardly the best.

I had the pleasure of living in HB and jamming with Jimmy. I first met him when he was 14, he was absolutely INCREDIBLE and everything he did, he made look effortless... he would actually play with one hand alot of times and we were jamming pennywise style punk back then... amazing, I miss him much. I remember one time on our way to play in utah he got out and pissed in one of those ice machines at a gas station in the middle of nowhere... he was a fucking character man!

Re: This is the BEST DRUMMER making music today!
There really can't be a best unless you break it down to genre and then it still can be a tough choice.

We got drummers like Tony Williams, Danny Gotlieb, and Brian Blade who does more on a small set than these guys with big sets.

Rock on brothers of the drum.
