Why There Can Never Be A World's Best Drummer

Often times people hail a great drummer as the best in the world. Often times they are correct in their own mind, but their thought often has conflictions with other people's thoughts.

So here's the thread to end all discussion on the topic.

There cannot be a world's greatest drummer, because there is always going to be an idol that your favorite drummer hails as greater than him/herself.

That is why there is no best drummer in the world.

Is Billy making moves on Feisty Red? Smooth mover! ;-)

Good comment though, we all have different ideas of what makes a great drummer.

Well, being drummers, we get asked this question a lot. I usually just say there are a shit pile of great drummers out there in a shit pile of genres. There's no such thing as the world's best. It's not a measurable unit. WFD is one thing, but there is no scale for talent.

You guys found me out so I might as well get it all out in the open.

Feisty, will you marry me?

Not unless another Buddy Rich is born.

I was lucky enough to see him twice, sitting only about ten feet in front of the band both times. There is no doubt he was the greatest drummer alive.

Heh. Well thanks for the compliment. But there is no way I would be the best drummer in the world. Perhaps the best Looking drummer...:lol:

Gosh lately I've been feeling bashed on.

But in response to the marragie proposal;
Are the drums included?
If so... I'll think about it. heh

You can have all the drums. But I keep the 6.5x13 Titanium Dunnett Snare drum. Everything else is yours. Hello, my new future-ex-wife!! Now git in the kitchen and fix me some supper!

(You know I am TOTALLY kidding)
