Didn't the Greatful Dead use 2 drummers at one point?

I don't know. But Adam and the Ants did. Either way, neither of them were trying to achieve the effect of 'a robot kicking down a door' like Sigue Sigue Sputnik were. That's the difference.

That does sound like a unique way of making a sound affect for drums.

I used to play drums, but my body won't let me anymore. If I play for extended periods of time, my wrists freeze up and inhibit the movement and hurt. I actually went to physical therapy for this and they told me I get calcification in my joints. I was never good anyway but drums are so fun.

Well, the drummers in question (Chris Kavanagh and Ray Mayhew) carried off the job with some aplomb, it must be said.

I like a Brazillian samba band called Olodum. When I saw them live, there were sixteen people on stage, twelve of whom were drummers of one kind or another. That was a good noise to hear.

I like the druming of Kevin Hyde from the band Gaye Bykers on Acid - straightforward, loud and no-nonsense. Mr Hyde seemed quite suited to a life of hitting things with sticks, and he and the rest of the band were also very good in the film they made. 'All Hung Up' is a mighty single, but they did many fine songs. Sometimes they crossed dressed and appeared as Lesbian Dopeheads on Mopeheads (get it?!?!?!?!).

I'm glad I made this thread. I'm learning something everyday from these great board members.

Yep....Mickey Hart played alongside Bill Kreutzmann. I think Mickey left the band and came back in 1974 (which is arguably their best tour year). The two played together all the way up until Jerry died I'm pretty sure.

Thanks for confirming Krastian. I saw a documentary of the Dead once, & it might be the footage of that tour that you were describing.

I'll tell you who was massively under-rated as a drummer, and that was Nod from Fields of the Nephilim. Some fantastic drumming from Nod, eg on Moonchild, Psychonaut, and The Watchman. By coincidence, all of the videos for the aforementioned tracks can be found at this YouTube page!

Krastian:

I can't recall. I just remember watching a video at a friends house & the video of them both drumming was on. But, it did sound pretty fucking good.

Has anyone seen this reissue of Keith Moon's "Pictures of Lily" set?

 

They are limited addition (obvi) and surely they would be tempting to play for anyone who bought a set. It would be pretty cool to have, but you'd have to be a bit nuts to go around gigging with it......don't get me wrong, I'd take one!!!

I'm a casual drummer. Love the craft, love the instrument, but play strings first. Getting better..... I'm working to get good enough to perform/record flawlessly. I have a variety of drums.... mainly Fibes sets, some additional Gretsch Snares and love Bosphorus cymbals and older Zildjian's (namely 70's hollow logos).

I like a lot of the typical, iconic drummers. Especially S. Shelly (pocket grooves), Tim Alexander (epic tom roto tom grooves), Chad Smith (pop/funk grooves)... I also like these threes sound and tones too.

Allman Brothers band usually played with two drummers. I think Grateful Dead might have had a drummer and percussionist.
