Yeah I wish there were more drum-heads around here, another reason why I miss the old DDD forum. So much more active discussion.

Anyway, back to the vids!
When talking about 'feel' behind the kit, Bill Ward is up there with the best of 'em..



All four of them were just totally ON for this concert. :eek:

Very good vid there Neg. Love your enthusiasm in this forum, you have the newest post in like every thread XD. But seriously, I'm sad how small the members of this site are now, glad to see people like you keeping it alive and fun. Glad people like Echoes haven't been derailing threads for a long time now, I feel like the few of us left really care about the music, it's refreshing


Those of us 'left' here are serious, passionate musicians and students of music and rock history and instrumental history. I'm honored to be a part of this, and am grateful this forum exists.

That's basically how I look at it.

I am certain either way that more will join DDD over time...slowly.

how does Mayer keep his left hand so quite at those speeds? Lots of control I don't have http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr8KYnEW-7Y

And I don't care how 'masturbatory' it is, Rich still makes me orgasm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9esWG6A6 ... re=related

Both of those were just lethal.
Rich's control is mind-blowing. :eek:

Portnoy is still really skilled and nothing to demean, his precision live is some of the very best, and the footwork can be absurd: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxuYIiGqXWk

Also I found this a pretty impressive Peart solo, but really it's Geddy's bass that got me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa0C5Uxp ... re=related

Just an interview with Bruford, but the man always sounds so scholarly and has so much knowledge, very much like Fripp except Fripp may be an even larger intellectual. I love the crediting Copeland with white reggae. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa0C5Uxp ... re=related

As someone who isn't a massive Dream Theater fan, Portnoy is freaking amazing. I see what you mean about the footwork.

That Peart solo was fantastic.

you guys must be kidding me if you saw that YYZ performance right now ?!! thats the performance that got Peart really noticed from a live drummer point of view. Highly highly acclaimed, and I believe won awards in the 80s. Thats also the best YYZ in existence, the 1st Rush performance I saw, and still my favorite performance by them by a country mile. Geddy is on absolute fire there

edit: also, how can you not see the parts in that solo that were used in O baterista 20 years later. What's wrong with you guys !!

I don't know, I'm pretty sure he uses the gladstone technique to accomplish most of what he does with his left hand, but I'm pretty convinced Jojo can do whatever he wants with his left hand regardless of what technique he uses. (Although I saw his dvd and was left with the impression that his technique is pretty much perfect.) He's one of the most dynamic guys i can think of.

Yeah Jojo's left hand is godly, it's like Pridgen's right foot, if not better. I can never figure out what hand technique he's using, so much finger involvement, he gets the speed and accuracy with it though, and constantly changing the style to suit the speed. Extremely versatile. He may have the best traditional grip technique I've ever seen. Rich is acclaimed but man that Mayer....If only I could figure it out, I still have trouble getting my traditional grip up to speed while keeping a relatively low volume

Awesome heavy prog with the great drummer Bobby Caldwell.
This beat is one of my favorites, and when I played drums myself I played it constantly.

One of my favorite drum performances has always been in the song Blind Faith by Dream Theater. While not out of this world complex, I find it outstanding. I would give it a solid 7 or 8.
