Feel free to chime in with your opinion (like any of you needed prodding for that!), but I have been listening to MBD lately and have come to the conclusion that Mr. McTaggert may just be the finest example of a rock n' roll drummer I've found.

Of course, I'm excluding Neil Peart by calling him a "percussionist".

Who's on the short list? Roger Taylor (Queen)? Stewart Copeland (The Police)? Bill Bruford (Yes)?

I'd certainly put Ed up against any of them.

Some of the best drummers have distinctive styles.

Stewart Copeland is one of the best, and his style is recognizable and unique.

I would also add David Robinson of The Cars. If you've ever heard their music, David's drumming is clear and crisp, and plays right in to the catchy hooks.

I don't know if I can define Ed's style, but clearly his heart and soul went into MBD. This was among his best efforts. He still has it after all these years.

I wonder if Jeb McSwaggert will show himself on the new Eddies recording. That would be too cool!

Larry Mullen Jr.

Have you heard MoFo?

Ed cracks me up on Big Dorks Cornerstone 84 DVD. In the heart of 80s electro drum machine hell, there's Ed, standing up and smashing away at those octagon shaped drum pads and a couple ride cymbals.

MBD is great though.

KISS drummer all suffer from timing issues. Peter Criss' drumming was as eratic as Princess Di's personality.

I'll give you marks for Stan Lynch though.

It's really tough to find good, solid drummers without timing issues. Frown

I'd probably put Dave Grohl on that list too - Kurt Cobain described him as a guy "with perfect metronome timing".

It's the return of the beat menace, audi!

How could I leave Buddy Rich off the short list? He's the best. Ever.

Of course, if I believed in labels, I would label him a jazz drummer and then I'd be off the hook! Wink

I saw a web site where they put Ringo Starr in their top ten. Discuss.

Ringo Starr is looked down upon because
people immediatly think of the "She loves You, yeah yeah yeah"
time period. Early on drummers basicaly just kept beat.
He was doing pretty much what all drummers of the
period were doing. Goofy simple time keeping.
Heck, a few years earlier some 'rock' acts did't even
use a drummer.

But in the Beatles later music you can hear a lot
more of his more interesting work. "Tomarrow Never Knows"
and even on something like "Strawberry Fields".
The White Album, Abbey Road, etc. You know they
actually recorded a 30+ minute version of "Helter Skelter"?
Any wonder where the "I got blisters on my fingers!"
comes from?

Ringo is a drummer who has a distinctive style that a lot
of drummers try to emulate or are asked to. But generally
you don't get to see or hear his more interesting work.

I knew a kid at work once told me, Oasis is like the
Beatles only better. I laughed. How many bands you
know go around bragging they are better than Oasis?
For bands to brag that, it means they know it's the ultimate
to achieve. We are bigger than the Beatles! The very
proclomation proves it not to be so.

I am not saying Ringo is the best, but some like to under-rate
him because they only think of his very early work.
I bet if you asked a lot of famous drummers who they
wanted t be like, Ringo's name would come up a lot.

Alex MacDougall and Steve Hindalong are both a couple
of my favorites, right up there with Ed. They are all very
different, but very good too.
