83. Frankenstein - Chuck Ruff (Edgar Winter Group)


That should actually be Chuck Ruff and Edgar Winter. It's a drum duet.

I really think Take No Prisoners should go way up. And why is Stream of Consciousness ahead of Heart of the Sunrise and Won't Get Fooled Again?

I just realized something. The double drummer lineup of The Fall was insane. At least one track from Hex Enduction Hour should be on this list. I recommend "The Classical." The drummers are Paul Hanley and Karl Burns.

EDIT: I also just found an insane medley from Lee Michaels's self-titled 1969 album. There's an epic drum solo on it by Barry "Frosty" Smith.

K, so I listened to La Villa Strangiato again, and I'm still lost as to why it's number 1. Any explanation? It's good, but I don't think it's anywhere near THAT good. Honestly, I never noticed how much it sounds like early Bruford drumworks. Like, Time and a Word Yes.

One reason why La Villa Strangiato is number one...It's La Villa Strangiato

idk man, I still find Ticks and Leeches significantly more impressive, along with Schizoid man...etc.
btw Bruford, Bozzio, Carey, and Portnoy could probably all play that piece as well, with the ghost notes at that speed, and do it better, probably....

That's not the point. Other drummers can play Ticks and Leeches, but that doesn't take away from its greatness. The point is, La Villa Strangiato is very technically challenging and influential. Listen to Dream Theater's "A Nightmare To Remember" and you will hear stuff that Portnoy does that sounds a lot like La Villa Strangiato. Speaking of A Nightmare To Remember, I think that song should be considered on this list.

This list is a little inept.

I notice that there are 3 Gentle Giant performances listed, all credited to John Weathers. Including Nothing at All and Giant, John Weathers did NOT perform on these songs (studio versions anyway) as they are from Gentle Giant's debut album and he didn't join the band until Octopus, their fourth album.

The drummer for those two songs was Martin Smith. Smith was a fantastic drummer but Weathers was indeed the best drummer the group had. Check out Proclamation off of Power and The Glory, excellent drum work going on there.

im just gonna start a new version of this list. Who gives a fuck about being a moderator. This place needs to come to life again. Im gonna start with a Top 100, take suggestions, build a list, and maybe it'll extend from there.
