Carl Palmer on Pictures At An Exhibition - pretty much throughout the whole thing, but on "The Hut of Baba Yaga" medley, the constant sixteenths around the kit really drive the music.

Clive Bunker on the first two Jethro Tull albums, This Was and Stand Up.  Nothing simple here.

Jean Philippe Fanfant on Sakesho - a mix of jazz and caribbean rhythms.

Julio Barreto on Antiguo, Gonzalo Rubalcaba's album that merges Yoruban rhythms with electronics.

Funny...I also thought that Palmer's drum part on "Lucky Man" was a bit over the top, but I still like it.   :D

The nice thing about listening to death/black metal is that there's no such thing as "too much" when it comes to drums. The result is that every band I listen to features a drummer who just doesn't know when to quit.

Check out any or all of the following for way too much drumming:

Death - "The Sound of Perseverance" (Richard Christy)
Spiral Architect - "A Sceptic's Universe" (Asgeir Mickelson)
Watchtower - "Demonstrations In Chaos" (I honestly do not know)
Vital Remains - "Dechristianize" (same as above)
Today is the Day - "In the Eyes of God" (Brann Dailor)
Misery Index - "Overthrow" (Kevin Talley)

Vinnie Colaiuta on "Scophile" from John Patitucci's "Sketches." It's over-the-top even for Vinnie in a stretching/fusion setting. I considered it an extreme indulgence to listen to. I can only imagine how it felt to play it. Only outdone by a bootleg making its way around the Internet, a 19-minute improv solo of Vinnie throwing up on the drums ... this is pornography expressed in rhythm. I feel ashamed for having a copy. Not that I'll part with it.

Oh yes indeed, good call. Classic drum porn.

Small correction for anyone who goes looking for this: the CD is Sketchbook, not Sketches.

Drum porn! Too funny!!!  ;D

Bozzio is pretty sick on Vai's Sex and Religion. He does some awesome round house rolls. And the double bass / crash fills are classic.
It's still Rock'n'Roll to me.

Watchtower - "Demonstrations In Chaos" (I honestly do not know)

That would be Rick Colaluca. Anything by WatchTower is over the top. The guitarist Ron Jarzombek has another band, Spastic Ink that is even more complex than WatchTower with his brother on drums, Bobby Jarzombek (Halford/Riot/Spastic Ink) now on tour with Iced Earth replacing Richard Christy.

Heres another example of super charged, high octane, take no prisoners drumming.

This one is from the incredible  http://www.deep-purple.com/band/?paice]Ian Paice.  

The tune is Burn, from the 1974 Deep Purple  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000002KFA/qid=1087566381/sr=8-1/ref=pd_ka_1/103-1683351-0949468?v=glance&s=music&n=507846]album of the same name .

It leaves most of us tired and out of breath by the end.

Outstanding.

Heard this one for the first time in years last week...  "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen.  Drumming at the beginning blows me away.  Maybe not over the top by some standards but certainly amazing.

I love Paice's snare playing. Cool song to play, but try and keep the tempo up to speed the whole tune...

It's still Rock'n'Roll to me.

Here's one that I've always loved.

It has speed, finesse and creativity to spare.

It features one of my all time favorite drummers, the great  http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Danny_Seraphine.html]Danny Seraphine .

The song is Make Me Smile, originally released as a single; it appeared later on a remastered version of  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000069KE0/qid=1089916353/sr=8-5/ref=pd_ka_5/102-8232814-3849741?v=glance&s=music&n=507846]Chicago II .

What a great song!  I've been playing along with that one since Chicago II was released.  Daniel Seraphine was another heavy influence on me.

Danny's just great, isn't he?

Such a bummer he's not playing anymore.

Every time I hear him play, I just wanna sit at an old four piece kit and shred.  8)

Has he actually quit playing?  I always wondered what happened between him and Chicago.  I had to dig a bit, but I found an interesting interview with him, ca 1994:

I've read that before but thanks. That interview is the last that anyone has heard from him that I know of...

I really need to just up and stop playing drums permanently.

Thanks guys.

Yeah. A lot of this stuff is kinda face melting.

The solo at the start of Rainbows 'Stargazer' by the late Cozy Powell is a classic.

This weeks installment doesn't quite have the furious pace or ripping chops of previous examples, but I'm including it here anyway.  8)


Let's have a listen to the incomparable  http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/John_Bonham.html]John Bonham  on one the grooviest tracks in history, Poor Tom.


The tune is from the album  http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000002JSR/qid=1091210167/sr=8-1/ref=pd_ka_1/002-6495575-1017638?v=glance&s=music&n=507846]Coda  that was released in 1982, two years after John's death. It is seldom played on the radio so some of you may be hearing it for the first time.

Coda is a compilation of material that was not released while the band was in existence. There are many other real gems on this record. If you're so inclined to buy it, you won't be disappointed.

The rolling, freight train type groove that Bonzo plays on the song is nothing short of mesmerizing. The sound of the kit, perfect.

Quite the ankle warmer too. I usually play this groove to assess any type of kick pedal that I'm trying out. It's a goodie.

If you haven't heard it before, turn it up and check out..

What a great thread! I too consider Danny Seraphine a huge influence. his grooves on songs like 25 or 6 are deep.
Anyway, for some good over the top stuff, check out Billy Cobham on the song Storm from the Crosswinds album. If you have a good stereo system and crank it way up it gets pretty close to a religous experience. If anyone else had heard this song, how did he get those tom effects? Is that from a flanger?
