Someone here brought up Carl Palmer...Such a great drummer...Below is a link to check out some snare drummin from him..You can see Buddy's influence and other goodies that have evolved..One handed rolls and look closely cuz you'll see blast beats..!!
It wouldn't allow the embeded link so you'll need to more than likely go to the You Tube site below..!!

CP is one of the Gods!! tho he's not mentioned that often
Did you notice on the video that he was fighting that snre drum ? I could tell he wasn't real happy with it, but yeh..What a player..He was a big part in the progressive rock scene..it's amazing how it took folks to set the tone for younger players..it's almost like computers...Folks that program them now days wouldn't know how to program an old apple or something..it took folks to set it up for them and the new programmers had a foundation to make computers faster and all that..That's what Palmer and of course so many other drummers did..I think it's so important for youngters now days to understand what drummers in the past had done is making it easier for them...Me and everyone else should be so grateful for them...Oh and I'm old too..!!

Hey Dave,

Ironic you posted this. I was watching it myself this afternoon. What a fun clip! Great chops on snare and others on Youtube on the kit - a real technician in the best sense of the word. He's definately keeping the fire burning. 8)

Best,

CP is one my top 5 biggest influences!

He's one of the few guys who's chops have actually gotten better as he's aged. Check out some of the videos of the solo he played on last years ASIA tour on youtube!

He has a nice web page at http://carlpalmer.com/
