yep.


Yeah, that's my point. Everyone is trying to say, "How can you leave so-and-so out?" when this is not a competition or a "Best Ever" thread. We were asked our favorites, just like in my "Top 10 Favorite Rock Bands" thread. I like Eric Carr and the kid could flat-out drum, too. Criss wasn't as talented, but the four of them altogether were my favorite band back in the early 70s. Again, we are talking favorites. When I made the "Best Drummer" thread, I included Carr, who got voted off, but did not include Criss, who did not belong on the list. Carr made the list out of sentimentality more than any other reason.

there are alot with huge lists. Alot.


none bigger than Buddy Harman



Besides being acknowledged by the country music community, Buddy Harman is recognized for contributing to the rock-and-roll era with his performance on many recordings including the Everly Brothers' "Cathy's Clown" and being a mainstay on Elvis Presley's soundtrack recordings both in Nashville and Los Angeles. He also played on many recordings by Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Harman has played drums on countless records with a variety of recording artists that reads like a page out of "Who's Who." These artists include: Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, Brenda Lee, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Connie Francis, Chet Atkins, Marty Robbins, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Lynn Anderson, George Jones, Kenny Rogers, Perry Como, Merle Haggard, Charlie Rich, Roger Miller, Jimmy Dean, Simon & Garfunkel, Ann Margret, Nancy Sinatra, O.C. Smith, George Burns, Reba McEntire and many others.

Besides being the first staff drummer on the Grand Old Opry, some of Harman's accolades include: "Drummer of the Year" in 1981 from the Academy of Country Music, "Super Picker" award for drums on the most #1 recordings from the Nashville NARAS chapter in 1975 and 1976, and the Nashville Super Picker nomination for "Best Country Instrumental Performance" in 1979 for the Live From Austin City Limits album.

"One of the highlights of my career was having the privilege of performing for four of our nation's presidents," Harman says. These presidents were John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan.

Buddy Harman, an accomplished musician, exemplifies the qualities of a true professional in the recording business.

Harman has played on some of the biggest hits of Opry stars: Charlie Walker, Billy Walker, Jeannie Seeley, Hank Snow, Jim & Jesse, Roy Acuff, Roy Clark, Justin Tubb, Roy Drusky, The Carlisles, Mac Wiseman, Skeeter Davis, Vic Willis Trio, Wilburn Brothers, Jimmy Dickens, Osborne Brothers, Louvin Brothers, Jim Ed Brown, Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper, Ray Pillow, Jimmy C. Newman, Jack Greene, Del Reeves, Johnny Russell, Stonewall Jackson, Porter Wagoner and Bill Anderson. He has played on numerous jingles, TV and radio shows and movie soundtracks.

Harman has played on several European Tours with various artists including The Nashville Superpicker Band and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Exactly. One of the guys I listed really doesn't play anything overly complex. I just always felt like I was on the same page with his playing style and the way he wrote with what the guitars were doing. And in the few times I've seen him live, it put an exclamation point on that - Blackie O'Nassis from Urge Overkill. Speaking about Peart being all composition and very little soul, Blackie was the complete opposite, all soul and very little composition.

Carter Beauford is a fricking animal. DMB would never be able to replace him (if they had to).

I'd throw in Abe Cunningham from Deftones because he's solid and have always liked his style and I like to play drums that style.

Other amazing drummers IMO:
Danny Carey
Carter Beauford
Josh Freese
Mike Portnoy
