Is that such a bad thing that he emulates others?? He's addmited it himself, admitted his influences. He grew up around some of the most famous drummers of all time, and played virtually from when he was able to walk. That aint a bad thing in my book chief. I think that actually, the majority of Musicians, whether they be drummers, bass players or Guitarists, started off emulating someone or other. Thats what influence is all about and I personally don't see it as a bad thing. Without Carter Beauford, I wouldn't know who the hell Buddy Rich was, and he, in my opinion is one of the greats. Carter Beauford was the person who I first heard mention Buddy Rich and so I looked him up. <br>Even FZ had his influences...and Im pretty sure FZ is on your list of influences too. He's certainly on mine.   :)<br>Chill........<br>

I would have loved that at age 10!! Thats why Im trying now, with my 8 year old to influence her as much as I can and introduce her to the whole experience of going to Gigs and how great it is. I know she's only young, but to involve her in something I love and find important, and get so much out of, I reckon will only be of benefit to her. She has been surrounded by music from when she was born, and it is a huge influence even now, she's obsessed with keyboards and drums and wanders around the house singing.... She even had a go at her own lyrics last month!!! It was some other bands tune but she had put her own cute words to it! <br>I caught her trying to sing along to "Yellow Snow" the other day, she didnt know the words, but ya gotta give her ten outta ten for trying! She said it made her laugh....  ;D<br><br>

For me the best who played with Frank were Chester Thompson, Terry Bozzio and Aynsley Dunbar, in general Frank always had very good drummers<br><br>One drummer I saw live long time ago at the Savoy in NYC in 1982 with Al di Meola was Simon Phillips, I've never heard about him but I was looking more at him rather than Al.<br><br>What about Sly Dunbar...<br><br>The duet Pat Mastelotto and Bill Bruford<br><br>This is me with Carl Palmer, a very good drummer one of the best I have seen live, backstage, teaching  and rehearsing<br><br>The photo was taken during an interview I conducted with him and his band including Shaun Baxter doing real STRAT ABUSE playing all the Emerson parts with great arrangements using only his old fender strat and let me tell ya... one of the best guitar players I have seen<br><br>Image<br><br>

Emerson parts in guitar arrangements?  Woah.  I'd like to hear Tarkus then.

It's available as an OFFICIAL release at Carl Palmer's website. There are two CDs recorded live with the same band. I know there's a recording of the shows here but of bad sound quality so I do recommend you these couple of CDs (I have the first only).<br><br>Image<br><br>Image<br><br>Visit Carl Palmer website at http://www.carlpalmer.com/

Talking about drummers I have some very sad news to deliver here folks: <br><br>Spencer Dryden passed away last night.<br><br>http://www.spencerdryden.com/<br><br>He was not a great drummer but was the guy behind Jefferson Airplane in the good old days before they switched to Jefferson Starship and later to the worst case Starship <br><br>He was a very nice guy and a great drummer<br>

This quote (excerpt) was posted by Phil Collins hisself on the Genesis forum, Feb 20, 2005:<br><br>"The best examples of 2 drummers playing as one are Jim Keltner and Jim Gordon on Joe thingyers Mad Dogs and Englishmen live album, Keltner and Ringo at the Bangla Desh concert and Chester playing with Ralph Humphrey on Zappa's live Roxy and Elsewhere album. This incidentally is where I got the idea that Chester would be good in Genesis, not from his playing with Weather Report....."<br><br>Notice how they don't allow you to say "cock", even if it's Phil Collins and even if it's the name Joe Cocker...unbelieveable...<br><br>But I digress...pretty cool quote, eh? <br>
