 Post subject: Favorite Drummer's Directory
PostPosted: Tue Oct 12, 2010 7:49 pm 
Just like it was last time. I would also like to emphasize that you don't have to numerically list/rank them if you're not comfortable doing so, and i think it's fine if you want to include a few extra names or honorable mentions too (and if you're really adventurous, links and song recs/favorites of their drumming on next to their name). I won't be checking in every 10 minutes, but i'll try to get to updating it every day, sometimes every two days. if thejew wants to use his mod powers to help update as well, awesome!

Edit: it would be really helpful if you could put in parentheses next to the drummer the band(s) they've worked in, or what they're most famous for (or, if they are primarily a session musician, you can leave their name or say (session musician) next to it)

Not in the top 10, but Murph from Dinosaur Jr. is one of my favorites again. That guy knows how to pound out a beat with such precision and power.
