Your Favourite Drummer of all time?...

My favourite drummer of all time is John Bonham his contribution to Led Zeppelin was groundbreaking to say the least. The intro to When the Levee Breaks is the most sampled drum piece ever!!!.. enough said.

Bonham's When the Levee Breaks part has definitely been sampled loads, but I think you'll find that Clyde Stubblefield's (James Brown's drummer) Funky Drummer part and The Winston's Amen Break would probably claim the crown for the most sampled drum breaks of all time when you look at the number of mainstream and underground tracks those two loops have featured over the last 30 odd years or so.

Just as my post about my favourite bassists, I have numerous drummers I have the up-most respect for, including Bohnham, Stuart Copeland, Steve Gadd, Dave Grohl, Phil Gould, Jeff Porcaro, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Billy Cobham, Jojo Mayer, Taylor Hawkins, Gary Husband....again I could go on but I think that's enough to be getting on with for now!

Good point!!... Clyde Stubblefield and John Bonham most sampled drum break I agree.. you mentioned some great drummers in your list Stuart Copeland he was a huge influence on me becoming a musician in the late 70's early 80's... everytime l hear a Police track I start air drumming!!!... and Gene Krupa sheer drum genius.

Tim Madden from Make Them Suffer. He is so good at setting up those breakdowns. Especially in early albums like Neverbloom and Old Souls. As for Worlds Apart... Well, it's kinda different album and Tim shows really great performance and adaptation to new direction.

i would like do some writing college admission essay for someone btw...
