    Clyde Stubblefield with James Brown!

    He lives in Madison WI (actually recently suffering from serious illness- living w/out insurance!)
    Had a chance to work with him for a few gigs 15 years ago or so in a jazz and R&B setting. There is no one who can split the back of your head w/ a Funk backbeat better than Clyde and he could play in any style.

    A few I didn't see mentioned in the jazz category:
    Art Blakey
    Max Roach
    Philly Jo Jones

    Rimshot mentioned Al Miller. Wow! I didn't think anyone else knew about him. I used to go with my drummer to his lessons with Al back in the late 60's. My brother also started to take lessons from him. Great big band drummer! Is he still alive?

    Yeah he was a GREAT big band drummer. I studied with him from 1962-1970. Unfortunately Al passed away a couple of years ago. His son: Matt has been doing well and was the touring drummer for Blood, Sweat and Tears as well as an active studio drummer.

    BTW on the first page in my post, I mentioned both Art Blakey and Philly Jo Jones (although I forgot to mention Max Roach, Tony Williams and Elvin Jones, all great influences.) Another drummer that I listen to a lot is Jack de Johnette (who seems very appropriate to mention now, especially for this forum. He is an awesome drummer and a classically trained fine keyboard player too.)

    It took me a while, but I recently started listening in depth to The Who, and I can understand why Keith Moon was so revered as a drummer. The boy really was quite good. :tu:
     
  8. I saw 2 shows on that tour. Omar was just amazing. Sitting up there, straight backed upright posture, smiling away like he was relaxing on the beach, and the grooves and sound and power coming out of his kit were like a locomotive.
    Other than that you all have pretty much nailed all of my influences, at least the well known ones,
     
  9. Paul,
    Two shows on the tour? Sounds like Lady Luck gave you a big, fat kiss. I only have had the opportunity to see the film, which of course kicks serious tuchus. Happy Hols, David
     
  10. Well, coming from a bassist, here are a few that I did not see:

    Ray Cooper - could do more with a tambourine than some drummers do with an entire kit. I saw him with Elton John in the late '70s, just EJ with acoustic and electic piano, and Ray with a stage full of percussion

    Max Weinberg - kind of a Charlie Watts with a little more balls

    Dave Garibaldi

    Ringo Starr - yeah I know he wasn't fancy, but I don't know of a rock drummer who played songs rather than just beats better than him - think of the pickup to Day Tripper as an example.

    My 2 cents for what it's worth (yeah, I know - $.02)
    :D

  12. I felt pretty lucky. They played twice in Chicago on thet tour, on the outgoing leg & the homebound leg, so I saw them 2 times several months apart. Both just awesome shows, those guys were on fire.

    BTW, what is this film to which you refer? I gotta get me a copy.
     
  13. Paul,
    I refer to the film "Bring On the Night". Good to see you here. David

    neil peart

    billy cobham

    no one heard trilok gurtu??! i think he's the one guy who can blow my mind any given day or time. miles davis asked him to come and play with him but died before that could happen. he's played with don cherry and joe zawinul. you really have to check him out. :p:

    speak of bill bruford's dynamics, i really like the way Fishman uses that around his kit along the jams with Phish.

    Bring on the night is a Sting Movie/documentary, about the tour behind Dream of The Blue Turtle record. But Mr. Hakim is the drummer there. Sting managed to get together some serious jass/fusion musicians, way above his league 8).


    Uppdate and addition to my list:


    Gulli Briem (he's Icelandic :lol: )

    Hi,

    I'm a splendid drummer, howcome don't I, in comparison to you guys, know a single legendary/Classic drummer?

    It's kinda wierd...
    Also I don't know all the technical conceptions which are used in world of drumming,... But I could with guarantee take the most of you guys down...

    Why am I not interested in knowing all of this... ?
    Where do you get your information from ?

    Me Too! And that's exactly what I was thinking jlee462 (Forty Six and Two, just ahead of me)
    How about Dave Lombardo guys! IMO that dude was the best until Daney Carrey. Well atleast the fastest. His fills were sick.
    Buddy Rich was NOT from this planet, so he doesn't count :lol: (fu*kin wild man!)
    And what about Vinnie Paul? I love him! IMO one of the few drummers that plays with harmonies.
    I saw Dave Grohl's name on here too (page 1 I think?). He also plays with harmonies (and not so much just beats and measures)and I love the loooong snare rolls he is famous for.
    Igor Cavalera was good as well.
