I voted for Mr. Shelley. Mainly because he has such a diverse style of playing. Although his drumming was pretty dull and straight-forward on the new album He's still quite possibly my favorite rock drummer!

He's also quiet and mousey looking. He reminds me of a furry, cuddly woodland creature.

Skinmaster Steve Shelley is the best drummer in the world and has been for many, many years.

Who are the contrarian miscreants in the minority voting otherwise?

I could venture a guess who, but I'll refrain from doing so.

Firstly, Steve can play their parts better than they ever could.
Secondly, and more importantly, Steve could come up with those types of "tribalesque" primitive parts in his sleep.

Some people just don't know jack shit about music.

I sorta disagree with you, atari.. but whatever. i still chose SS cos hes the fuckin' man. sometimes he's kinda straight-forward and boring, but when he rocks, he rocks hard. Edsons drumming is rad on the EP though.

None of the others are bad, or at least they weren't wrong or bad for Sonic Youth for the time they were with them, and I do appreciate the others very much.

But no one should get hung up on nostalgia to the extent that it obscures what simply is undeniably true.

So far, only three out of twenty-eight have voted other than Steve and that is doing very, very good considering how wack some of the polls we have here are.

even though i own Bob Bert's drum set he used to record CIS, BMR and the Pussy Galore records, i still say Shelley is far above and beyond the best and one of the best all around drummers ever.....The drummer of a band is like the catcher on a baseball team- least recognized, but the most important all-around member and the glue that holds the team together........

steve, for sure. I love edson's drumming on the first ep, and 'voon's drumming on CIS is pretty damn good to my ears.

I agree with those of you who said Richard's drumming was wonderful on the EP. I'm actually surprised that out of the four of them he's the only one with no votes.

My next question is this: If Steve were to leave the band at this point, would they still be Sonic Youth? Even though he isn't part of the original lineup, I'm pretty sure that when most people think of SY they picture Thurston, Kim, Lee and Steve. Would the band still be SY without any one of these four integral elements?
