Drummers that get No Love?
Anyhow, what I was hoping for is to get some people who love drums to suggest OTHER great drummers, people who are at the top of their craft, but get little recognition.
I'll list a few, as examples then turn it ovver to you folk
IGOR CAVELARA ( Sepultura, very versatile, and IMO right there with Lombardo for king of Thrash drumming)
MORGAN ROSE (Sevendust. ZOMG!!! But that's Nu-Metal, and he doesn't pound a million blastbeats a minute. Yeah shut up and listen to the drums. He is one of the most creative drummers alive today)
MERCEDES LANDERS ( OK Peaches..now you go TOO FAR. Thats not only NuMetal, but its a chick! Uh huh, your point? She still drums better than 95% of the guys in Metal, deal with it )
JUKKA NEVALAINEN (Nightwish. PowerPop Fairy Metal? How can that have good drumming? Again, shut up and listen to the drumming, THEN get back to me )
and I ain't even gonna get into Tomas Haake, or Daniel Erlandson, cuz if you can't instnatly recognize their greatness, you need to never comment on Drumming again. Am I claiming these 4 are the best drummers ever? No, what I am doing is pointing out that there are fantastic ones NOT NAMED NEIL PEART.
MQ- Name some great lesser known drummers.
(provide links if possible)
MQ2- What Kind of Drumming do you prefer?
