What bands have had drummers leave and were not the same since after the drummer left. Drummers are the heart of the band and contribute hugely to the energy. Dave Lombardo Slayer (91), Chris Kontos Machinehead (95) Bill Bruford King Crimson (various)
#3
The Who, The Mars Volta
There's a place where a depth charge ignites.
#4
KISS (it seemed like they got way less popular after peter criss left)
dillinger escape plan (still awesome, but different)
led zeppelin (because they broke up)
#5
The Who
Iron Maiden (Nicko was crazy good on his first two albums with them, but ever since SiT, his drumming has been somewhat lax, and I have a feeling they would be more energetic if they still had Clive.)
BRMC (but they changed for the better)

Guns N' Roses, after appetite/lies...I don't think the change in sound had much to do with Steven tho...

now they're back and rockin'

not necessarily true.

pete best anyone?

and from a record companies point of view, the drummer is usually the weakest member, and if they start ****ing up they are the first to go.
its not often that drummers contribute much to the songwriting process, and its easy to get the same effect (possibly even better) from session guys when recording.

was this a stab at me?

no matter if it was or not, i've heard Pridgen and he's amazing
#17
no, i was agreeing with you.

theres nothing that says theodore was better than pridgen, so the drummer change in this case didnt have a negative impact on the band.

and yeah, pridgen is a siiiick drummer.

you know when a band has a weak drummer. drummers conduct the band (or should) from behind the kit. A lot of guitarist are self absorbed but many (including me being a guitarist/drummer) see their importance.

i make drum and bass. i am well aware of the importance of drums.

im just saying that generally, drummers have no input into making the music other than the beat. There are thousands of session drummers that can be bought in who would probably do a better job on the track than the original drummer, and nobody would notice.

you cant replace a singer very easily, for obvious reasons, invariably a guitarist will have written the riffs and being the moody artists that most guitarists are, they will not let anyone else step in for to play them, same deal to a lesser extent with bassists.

unless you doing neil peart levels of drumming, the drums are pretty much just there to keep time (and occasionally add a little of colour).
anyone could do it. im not saying that drums arent an integral aspect of the overall song, but drummers on the other hand, arent as important as the beats they make.
drummers can even be replaced by a fairly realistic sounding machine, who would argue a lot less, and would make a lot less mistakes.

I can't think of any that haven't been mention but drummers hold a lot of power. Tommy lee said, they are the only person on stage who can move the crowd with a single beat!

But Tommy Lee is a drummer, of course he's going to talk them up...

I agree that a drummer sometimes makes or breaks a band though, they are pretty important.
Hello
#24
They are important just as anyone in the band and at times they add something special that makes the band what it is.

It makes me sad how much **** they are eating at times.

judas priest have a had alot of drummer changes, i think they have had 6-7drummers since 1970. of course scott travis is alot more techincal skilled on the drums than his predecessor dave holland, but dave had a solid rhythm and played with priest for over 10years during the 80s
