...would you like to jam with? What drummer would you enjoy making a allstar rhythm section with?

Id say off the top of my head, John Bonham for starters (you shouldnt have to ask why ). Also lately ive really been digging John Theodore, formerly drummer for the Mars Volta, and now drumming for Zach de la Rocha's side project. While Zach doesnt do much for me most of the time, from what ive heard from John's TMW/current work and session stuff, hes a damn fine drummer and hella creative musician.

Also, if i wanted to make my head explode, Danny Carey

It all depends on the type of music you're going to be playing, so I'd say this is really subjective as far a topic goes...

Even though I don't know much about drumming, I'd have to go with someone like Portnoy, Peart, or even Lopez...(Though I suppose any drummer in a halfway decent metal band would be a good choice as well, what with being able to play almost ANYTHING...)
#5
Ginger Baker would be kinda fun. he probably would not appreciate my willingness to kiss Jack Bruce's feet though.

whatshisname from Free, can't remember, but a solid as hell drummer. second to Theodore his work with One Day as a Lion is amazing. I like that guy from Paramore a bit, might like to try playing with him for some size.

that sexy beast.

man, he can hold a beat.

what's with that drumming with his hands 80 feet in the air though on some of his videos? drives me nuts, it looks so odd. there has to be a reason, that can't be comfortable.

eh i couldnt find any videos of that. Drummer insecurity maybe? If i was playing behind Paul Rodgers, i would either become depressed or learn how to be practically invisible. But eh, if you think thats odd, you should watch the guy from Godsmack play drums

John Bonham or Tim Alexander. And Billy Cobham. I am one of those people who can just sit and listen to 3 minute drum solos and just be mesmerized

Its funny, we were talking about Moon today during supper. He was probably one of the most inefficient but amazing drummers ever to grace rock. I listen to him and Entwistle and I am just astounded on how well they were able to lock together.

Considering Entwistle was known to comment on how irregularly they played their roles according to the typical rock band format, it is surprising - Entwistle played all the friggen leads, and Keith played like a keyboardist

I'm practically married to my drummer.

If I was Gay,
and he was Gay
We'd probably be lovers.

Or if he was a woman.....

then that would make everything easier!!!
I could dump my girlfriend then.

He's always overlooked, but I'm gonna say Jimmy Chamberlin. He managed to incorporate unique and sometimes very technical drumming into very popular music and he did it well and with a style so distinct that it's easily identifyable as his own.

I just really really love his playing, and think playing with him and taking his advice would make me a better musician.

Jean-Paul from Clutch

Hes as tight as a three year old girl.
"Whats that noise??"

"... Jazz"
#26
yea i got second jimmy chamberlain its shame hes so under-rated he's a amazin drummer.

I'd say:
Jimmy Chamberlain - Smashing Pumpkins
Dave Grohl - Nirvana/QOTSA
Josh Freese - Everyone
Chad Smith - RHCP
John Otto - Limp Bizkit

Playing drums with The Grohl would be amazing.

I'd also enjoy jamming with the bloke from deep purple (who I've shamefully forgotten the name of) and of course the late John Bonham.

I went out with a female drummer once. Yeh, didnt work out. I guess you could say our rhythms didnt lock in well.

As for real (male) drummers TRAVIS BARKER. Ive had to luxury to have met him in real life too, he's a dude.

I wouldn't want to jam with bonham, he's way to loud and big for me.

For me it would be Stewart Copeland of the Police, Jeff Martin from Medeski Martin and Wood or John Fishman of Phish. If none of them would be available then Terry Bozzio would do.

I love to jam with them because each of them just brings such abstract drumming to the table and each of them fits so well in the mix with out being overpowering.

Now before you say anything bad about the band, Aaron Gillespie, the drummer for Underoath, is an incredibly solid drummer. He's so tight and creative, it would be a pleasure and a challenge to play with him.

In addition, the drummer for mewithoutYou, Richard Mazzotta, is equally amazing.

I find that I feel the same about women who play bass as I think of immigrants in America.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.
