there have already been a **** ton of threads about your "favorite metal drummer"

its pretty ****ing old
If a mortal stands before us
Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

I personally like John Bonzo and Lars Ulrich....



Lars Ulrich! Yeah, he's so good he can get away with playing kick-snare without any fills for his entire career, and he's still considered brilliant! Wait, no, that's because he's in Metallica actually. My bad.

Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters)

not metal, i know, but i loves him
Quote by Spaztikko
Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

I like the drumming for Ihsahn's solo stuff, not sure who it is though.
EDIT: How could I forget Dailor?

Van Williams.

Poor Van, never getting any credit because he's black...
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

Phil Collins


I would have said that, but Peter Gabriel and the keyboards and guitar just ruled the band so much with their presence that I tended to ignore the drumwork.

If you can't tell, I don't listen to any of Phil's Genesis. Except a few choice songs.

yea he's definitely pretty money. i don't think anyone thinks of him because he never seems to do anything flashy. but he plays his role in that band damn well.

You obviously don't understand a lot about drums.

The man is a hybrid of an octopus and a NASA scientist.

i didn't say complicated... i said flashy... you can do difficult things w/o making them look flashy. i think van is a good drummer... but i think the fact that he blends in so well (which is actually a good thing) is the reason he gets overlooked.
