My Boy's Top Ten Favorite Drummers, Part 1

A little while back, my boy asked if I would interview him for my blog.  When I asked what subject he would like to talk about, he replied, "Well, drumming of course.  Duh."  Silly me. 

After further discussion, we decided to compile a list of my boy's top ten favorite drummers.  Today, I would like to share the first of what will be two posts.  Enjoy! 

10.  John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)

Thoughts:  He plays an awesome shuffle groove and his sound is enormous.

Favorite Song:  "The Ocean"



9.  Eric Singer (KISS)

Thoughts:  I really like the way his drums sound.  His fills are cool and he doesn't try to play too fancy.

Favorite Song:  "Black Diamond"



8.  Jeff Porcaro (Toto)

Thoughts:  The Rosanna Shuffle is one of the all-time greatest drum beats.  It sounds easy but it's really hard to play.

Favorite Song:  "Rosanna"



7.  Steve Gadd (James Taylor, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Eric Clapton, Chick Corea, The Bee Gees... basically everyone)

Thoughts:  He's just an all-around great drummer.

Favorite Song:  I can't decide, but I like this video of him playing with Dave Weckl and Vinnie Colaiuta.



6.  Aaron Spears (Usher, Alicia Keys, Chaka Kahn, James Brown, Israel Houghton...)

Thoughts:  His beats are really complicated.  I think it's cool how he plays his fills over the bar line.  I don't usually listen to Hip Hop or R&B, but I really like his drumming.

Favorite Song:  "Caught Up"
