Random Thoughts on Drummers

Apart from the occasional great song - mostly on UP - REM lost the plot when Bill Berry left.

Ringo Starr is vastly underrated.

Dave Grohl should stay behind the drums

John Bonham's thunderous playing on When the Levee Breaks is one of the few highlights of Led Zeppelin's overrated career.

Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh by Magma (led by drummer Christian Vander) is one of the most unusual and innovative albums ever made. Having lived with it for more than thirty years, I still hear new things in it.
