yes this is a good site but i still say topics like this have no value at all!
im not defending lars, he's a nutsac with a huge ego! just that most younger kids have never heard his good stuff so theyre only talking about 90's tallica.

SeanGordon, you and your drum corps buddy are real thinkers eh? My hat's off to yall. Ringo is one of my heroes. As well as Charlie Watts. And one of the first songs I played along to was also " Enter Sandman " when I was 11 (27 now).Sometimes younger drummers come up to me after a show and are like, "MAN, that was BAD ASS!! How do I...." and more often than not, my response goes something like, "I know you are capable of playing everything like I did tonight, because I've seen you play before. The question you have to ask is, would you?" I guess that's kind of the way I try to get people thinking, or to tell them (not everyone but a couple guys) they may be overplaying, without being rude about it and trying to make them feel good at the same time. But these are people I know fairly well, not just some random kid I've run into a couple times. Should I just tell them they overplay? Or let them figure it out with the little bit of a hint I already gave them? Or maybe suggest they join a metal band as opposed to a country cover band? I don't know, but I never tell them they suck, and try to convince them otherwise, even after they tell themselves that they do. :D

Thats simply not true, this type of topic is a good way for some people to learn. Yes its entirely opinion and some people may bash some drummer just because they lack knowlege about them or they are jealous. But thats a good thing because then other people maybe the older guys here with more knowlege can challenge their opinions and maybe open the persons eyes to something they have been missing.

Bonham layed the foundation for rock drumming. For all rock drummers. I was fortunate enough to see him play three times and I can tell you I learned every thing I know from him. I would be very interested to know which drummers you like. Oh yeh, Moon was awesome in 68-69 before he wasted himself on booz and drugs. I know a referance- Watch a video called The rolling stones rock & roll circus, The Who is the second act and moon is on fire! And right before that you can see Tony Iomi playing with Jethro tull.

Lmao, OK I was laughing thinking when thinking about this. Now I respect ALL drummers no matter what type, but who are we kidding, there are drummers who ummm....let's not say suck, but have no rythym, or at least not enough of it. The drummer I would like to point out in this Topic is Donald Tardy *Andrew W.k.*. In all of their songs, he plays basically the same thing over and over. Open HiHat, Snare, And Bass. *And a crash in there every once in a while*. Catchy tunes, but my god man....change something! :?
Horns in a song are very orgasmic.

haha, good point about that. but dont forget other drummers who are known for playing the same thing over and over and over....... has anyone ever reffered to a beat as the AC/DC beat before? i know i've heard it tons of time. no, acdc songs still groove but with the A.W.K. stuff, thats the feel and the pulse they want. if you've ever seen them live its not like that alllllll the time (atleast it wasnt when i saw them) he was doing fills and double kicking but still keeping the up tempo stacatto feel of the disc

Sorry mybad. This thread suks more than any drummer ever could! My point is - Do you think that the White Stripes would have done what they did with a good drummer? No Way! She was half of thier sound. They would never made it any farther than where they were on thier first tour.

woah woah woah! what is this an anti-Lars site??

Personally i dont like his style, I think there are loads of ways he could improve IMO - but that does not mean that he sucks. On some songs he plays awesomely, most noteably when he pulls out the double kick skills, other songs, yea he does kindve bore me with his off / alternate beat crashes etc. Like someone said previously he has inspired hundreds of kids to pick up sticks and start playing. Also, he has kindve sold millions of tickets, and shed loads of albums, so until you've done that, give him a break?

Personally i dont like the style of Brad Wilk from audioslave - only because its the opposite of my style (he plays simple beats, whereas i like to hit every beat with my kick, if you catch my drift) - that also diesnt mean hes not a great player, and doesnt suck. I know people who think he's a fantastic player, so yea for every 100 people, there are 100 different answers.

Like most people have said, there arent many drummers that "suck" if anyone has the guts and heart to get up on stage and perform to the best of their ability, and love the experience, regardless of whether they can play 3/4 timing, can double kick at 50000000000 BMP or even keep in time! As long as they give it their all then IMO they dont suck.

We all have someone that we dont like as a drummer. Thats all there is to it. Anyone who says they like everyone equally is full of it.

I've always dissliked Charlie Watts and that guy from AC/DC who plays the same freakin beats 24/7
The only thing that can prevent you from acheving even the furthest goal, is doubt. Stay dedicated.
