    Been listening to a few new drummers lately and thought I'd start a thread cos I love discovering new artists with their own unique styles.

    Personally I'm a BIG fan of Benny Greb (Solo), Steve Judd (Karnivool) and Danny Carey (Tool) but I've recently found people like Robert “Sput” Searight who are incredible in their own right.

    So thought I'd start a thread to share some of these amazing talents and hopefully discover some more!









    Share your faves!

    Huge respect for Steve Judd and Danny Carey - when I got into Tool, I always think my drumming took off. Both super creative drummers, but I always have Danny at my #1 spot.

    I'm a huge fan of heavy music and eapecially of Meshuggah for their timing, how tight the band is and especially the drums.
    Check out Tomas Haake. Guy is a fkn beast machine, tight af and the fact he can keep a 4/4 feel while going along with all the weird timings and make everything seamless, I would put him at my #2 spot.
    For endurance training, Bleed is a good song but don't recommend it for first listen. 110% listen to Clockworks. Fantastic song.
    Can't watch the videos at work but will check them out tonight!

    Jimmy Chamberlin

    Goes without saying as I'm a huge Pumpkins fan, but he often goes unnoticed because of that association.

    If you can spare 6 minutes I'll just let his drumming do the talking...

    Why number 1 on my list? Not only does he rock it with metal double kick he is also responsible for some of the best gaming sound tracks of all time.

    I think this is him, I seem to remember seeing that it was, but can't seem to find it now:



    This is definitely him, playing one of my fave APC tracks



    Big fan of Danny and Neil Peart too.

    A very subjective topic, as with all art based things.

    Stylistically my favourites would be Jimmy Chamberlin and Danny Carey, and neither band they play for would be in my top 5 rated bands, although I do love both.

    The best drummer (ability/technically) in my opinion would be Carter Beauford. The guy is an absolute beast on a kit.

    Little biased but my old instructor was one of my favourite drummers, hard to find a good video of him.

    Went to one of his clinics years ago. Was a really good night just listening to him.

    Wonder what Grant is doing these days. I used to get tuition from Col Gillies back inthe 90s. At the time Grant had his insane kit setup there. Had a bit of a bash at it, too many pieces, found it a bit intimidating!

    Technically brilliant, but I have to be honest, I got bored with his playing very quickly, whereas I could sit there and listen to Col play a simple 2&4 all day long. That dude had beautiful touch on a kit.

    Grant is still doing his thing from what I have seen, workshops and teaching etc...
    The kit was something else to site behind, remember jumping on it a couple of times but found it a bit overwhelming as well....

    Small world, I was getting tuition from Grant when he was setup at Col's warehouse in the mid to late 90s.

    How about John Bonham? . He was brutal on the skins, and had such great timing.

    He's bloody awesome, but Slayer's only on my 'I'm on my own in the car' playlist so wasn't at the front of my mind.

    My vote goes to Animal from The Muppets. Close second for me has to be Charlie Watts. Still can't understand how he's done so much with that ludicrously small kit he's used throughout the years.
