(*) Monday Music Mambo

Monday Music Mambo

1. Name some of your favorite drummers. Or name A drummer if you don't have any favorites. Keith Moon from The Who, absolutely! He was the "best Keith-Moon-style drummers" there ever was! Pete Townsend said once he was more like a keyboard player in The Who than a regular drummer, with his long rolling rythmical rolls and fills.
A close No. 2 would be Ringo Starr - a totally different style. Good solid and steady as a rock.

2. What song contains your favorite drum performance? Hmmm... most of Ringo's performances on The Beatles 1969 LP "Abbey Road" are pretty special. But hands down is his 1966 performance of "Rain" - simply awesome! Who else would have done a fill on hi-hats! Brilliant!

3. Do you prefer the drummer to simply keep a beat, or do you like him or her to show off a bit? Mainly to keep time, but if they can work in together with the other intrumentalists and work together to lift a piece or section - go for it!

4. If you were a drummer, how would you personalize your drum kit? Hmmm... a very basic kit: kik, snare, hats, a small crash and a ride cymbal. No toms. very simple basic jazz kit. I'm more of a 'keep-time' type drummer myself! heh heh

  1. I'm definitely right with you on Keith Moon. My dad adores the Who, and I don't think he could be any happier that I enjoy them as much as I do. Ringo Starr is a great choice as well.

    It's nice to meet you too! I've just returned to Blogdrive after a prolonged absence, but in the past I have found that BDI really tends to bring people together. :D
