A public apology to @TeaCider24 A little while ago, during the Rotherham match, I made a comment essentially in reply to TeaCider24.  The comment, full of sarcasm as so many of my posts are, impl

With perfect timing, this just appeared in my twitter timeline.

Tragic news, he was an exceptional performer that made comedy an art form. Bloody cancer!

Top top comic, tragic at only 58.  If anybody hasn't  seen 15 Storeys high, try and find it, only 2 series and written and starred Sean, really good.

RIP Don Everly..  before the time of many people on the board, but the Everly Brothers songs were part of the music I grew up with and have stood the test of time.

And now sad news about Charlie Watts as well.  That's a couple of proper music legends gone in the last few days.  RIP.

And yet somehow, Keith Richards is still alive.

Cocaine is a helluva drug.

Brian Jones went first ..  actually the group's founder and the one who chose the name originally, but that was 1969 so many people have forgotten that he was ever involved with the band. Allegedly one of the people they considered as his replacement was Paul Kossoff, so if he had been chosen, would probably have been a very different Free.

Yes he was one hell of a drummer. 

Without wanting to come across as a bit of a ***, or being disrespectful to the dead, he was an 80 year old drummer. The Stones could replace him with pretty much any drummer out there and you wouldn't know the difference if you were blindfolded.

Yup..¬† and you could replace Messi with McNair and you wouldn't know the difference if you were blindfolded ūüôā ..¬† you aren't being disrespectful, just expressing your point of view, but there are drummers, good drummers and elite drummers and even at eighty, he was regarded by others in the profession as "the man"..¬† times do change, but would be interested to know who people regard as being comparable amongst the younger lads¬†¬†¬†

It's not like playing guitar though for instance, drumming is drumming and there aren't that many drummers with a distinctive "sound" as it were. 

I can think of two off the top of my head, Joey Jordison (RIP) and Stephen Morrris (though in Joy Division that was more down to Martin Hannett engineering that particular sound.)

Don't ask me about more modern drummers, I haven't got a clue.

I think you might have hit the nail on the head there,  with the modern technology available, sound engineers could probably make anybody sound good..  progress I suppose.. grew up hearing people like Baker, Bonham, Powell, Nelson and there is definitely, as in the case of guitarists, those who are/were good and those who can be made to sound good.  thanks for answering re "new" drummers

I would list Moon, Starr, Baker, Watts, Purdey,

Oh mate drumming is a real art, listen to some Cream with Ginger Baker on drums, or some of the Motown tracks that Bernard Purdy played on. A good rock drummer can impress his own personality on a track and that’s before we even get into Jazz. Watts was a great drummer.
