I saw rikki rocket live a couple years back. He kept a strong beat and spun his friggin sticks so much it made my head spin. He is definitely bad ass. I have gone to see up and coming bands and have been blown away by people I have never heard of. At the same time, I have witnessed terrible sets in which it was obvious that the drummer was the weak link and spent more time at football practice than drumming during high school. Let's face it, sure it takes guts, we're a community, bla, bla, bla....Some people just don't have talent. If everyone did, no one would stand out. What I can't stand is when I pay $5 or so to get in a bar, only to have to suffer through a bunch of crappy hacks who make it obvious that they only started playing so they could look cool and get chicks and once they did, musicianship took a backseat. It happens. I've seen it.

Yeah, but here were all drummers, some people are complaining about "how did so and so get soofamous" well we are looking at it from the point of view of a drummer, not a fan that doesn't know as much about music as us,

We are of an Elite Breed

Mike Portnoy has a feud with Neal Peart?

Why?

Anyone who has a passion for the rhythm, and gets behind a kit , whether it be someone elses, in a store, in a basement, in a living room, in a bedroom, on a stage with 10 people watching, or millions...RAWKS;)

My least fav. drummer is easily the Roland R8 drum machine.
Or any drum machine.

Music is made by musicIANS, not a computer.

My fav. thing to say to kids listening to ... (drum machine music
(justin, rap, hip hop, etc..) is,
"Hey, who played drums on this?-
Sony!?!!"
:lol:

ehh, they're a couple drummers whos attitudes i dislike, mainly because they think they are better than everyone else, but in my opinion, you should respect anyone who drums crappy, talented etc, and if your better than them, faster better technique or w/e then you teach not criticize.

Having spent time working and teaching in drum stores, I think I have an idea which drummers suck. You know who they are? I'll tell you.

Guys who cannot play, but come into drum shops thinking they can play and then sit at the store kits and solo.

People working in drum stores know who I mean. ;)

Drummers sucking is all relative. I could say oh Meg from the White Stripes sucks...then someone could just as easily listen to my stuff and go - man, YOU suck. I'm sticking to positive vibes and love for drumming...to he@# with this thread.

Their is only one type of suck ass people, Its the lead singers, lead guitar players and i know of a couple that think a drummer is JUST a drummer. Ive heard them say this and thats the attitude of alot of singers, guitar players.
Anyone that has played for anyone, even if its just for one person is to me taking that step to be a musician.

dont let what others say, make you think your bad or someone else is bad.
Drummers Keep the groove and believe me , if it werent for the drummer, music would not be as it is today.

I wouldn't ever bag on another drummer because we all (or at least most of us) just want to do the same thing - be the best drummer we can be and maybe make a living at it. When it comes to drummers I don't like for whatever reason, I just DON'T buy their CDs, don't buy tickets to see their shows, and and change the station when they come on the radio. I would never pay to see Rikki Rocket OR Lars but both for completely different reason, but NOT because they suck.

(Well at least not Lars. heheh)
