    Just for grins. If you were to form a group, out of all the famous drummers that you could choose, which would be your first and foremost choice and why?

    For myself (as a drummer / concussionsist) I would choose Alarocka Bubblegum the famous tabla player.

    The trouble with talking about drummers is - there are too many different styles.

    I like Ginger Baker and John Bonham. Ginger Baker on the recent Cream concert at the Albert Hall was terrifically good still. Bonham was a hard case drummer. Fantastic power.
    I like the drumming on that Diana Ross track written by the Bee Gees - I forget the name.
    I like the drummer(s) that used to play on the Tamla Mowtown records - things like The Supremes records or I Heard it Through the Grapevine style drumming is also good.
    I liked Keith Moon and Ian Paice. Moon was better than he acted.
    Charlie Watts - I like his style over the years. He played a lot better than he mimed.
    I liked the Blondie drummer quite a bit.

    I thought Carl Palmer was a terrific percussionist all round and he kept them together very well. Great technical drummer. The bloke from Yes was a good drummer.

    Without checking first I would say you are talking about Hal Blaine who was a great studio drummer of the 60's and more and was instrumental on many songs of that era.

    For Jazz....Max Roach.
    For Brasillian.......Airto.
    For Rock....... who cares. Get some monkey, shave off the body hair, teach it to walk upright, and give it a pair of sticks.
    It has worked for me in the past.

    regards Joe
