This is a late parrot: There are lots of good drummers, but there is only one Mickey Hart Dolenz.

Charlie Watts and Ringo are both proof that what most bands need is a competent timekeeper who can keep the beat going, and that not every drummer needs to be a Neil Peart wankster.

blue_2501: Also, Dream Theater is a goddamn legend.


When they play covers of other people's music, they're pretty good.

Their own music is farking God-awful shiat.

jicon: Allegedly in it for the paycheck in the early days. Apparently not cheap to hire. He played with Ron Woods' brother before Charlie joined the Stones.

Coolest thing I heard about him was Mick moaning one night 'Where's my drummah?' in a hotel. Charlie in leather jacket, knocked on Mick's door, Mick answered and Charlie clocked him in the face. 'Im not anyone's drummer'. Adjusted his jacket and went back to his room.


Even cooler: Watts got out of bed, shaved, put on a suit and freshly shined shoes, decked Jagger and said, "Don't ever call me your drummer again. You're my farking singer."

Stone cold.

I love his work on "Get of Of My Cloud" in particular, that simple rat a tat a tat tat fill is so awesome.
