My Boy's Ten Favorite Drummers, Part 2

This is the second in a two-part interview I did with my boy.  In case you missed it, you can read part 1 here.  

Let's continue the countdown to number one with...

5.  Dominic Howard (Muse)

Thoughts:  He plays really simple beats but his time is always perfect.  I think he creates really interesting drum parts. 

Favorite Song:  "Hysteria"

4.  Animal (The Muppets)

Thoughts:  Animal is the best, even though he's a Muppet.  I like how he plays with all his heart and that he's kind-of dangerous when he drums.  

Favorite Song:  "Bohemian Rapsody"

3.  Darren King (Mute Math)

Thoughts:  He can play anything.  His playing is really unique and doesn't sound like anyone else.  I got to meet him when we were visiting NYC.  He took the time to meet me even though he was about to play on David Letterman.  I thought he was really nice.  

Favorite Song:  "Chaos"


2.  Larry Mullen, Jr. (U2)

Thoughts:  He is the drummer for my favorite band and so I love everything he does.  I really like how he is part of a true band.

Favorite Song:  "Bullet the Blue Sky"

1.  Abe Laboriel, Jr.  (Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Kelly Clarkson, Shakira, BB King...)

Thoughts:  He is the first drummer that I ever liked.  My dad was watching the Paul McCartney, Back in the USA DVD and when they played "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" I was hooked.  He's the one that inspired me to start playing drums.  He's also an amazing singer.  

I got to see him play when Paul McCartney came to Nashville.  We knew one of the sound engineers and during the show he brought me a stick that Abe broke while playing Jet.  It's one of my favorite possessions.  

Favorite Song:  Obviously, "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

I hope you've had as much fun hearing about my boy's drumming idols as I had interviewing him.
