    I am mourning this less than I am the 717 trampled Muslims.

    I used to drum in a Zep tribute band. Yeah it's goofy, but it was really fun. Anyway, a great drummer is only really great to other drummers. To most people it sounds like grandma falling down the stairs I've found.

    The greatest indeed. People can argue for decades about who's the best band, best guitarist, vocalist, bassist, etc. But when it comes to drummers, there is no debate. None!

    I'm afraid there is no such thing as too darn loud.

    He is entertaining. Ginger is also the most overrated drummer who ever played. He is/was sloppy and boring. IMO

    I was going to wait until the 3rd post, but I figured it was good to get out of the way sooner.
