    Was just listening to this a week or so ago. Killer group. Barney was at his best.

    Listen to Masters of Reality album "Sunrise on the Sufferbus". That's Ginger Baker on drums, and I think he did a right good job of being jazzy. No other drummer could have done that album like he did:



    In fact, he's downright understated on this song, but it's still the sound of a nice tight pocket gettin' fit in... :cool:

    And what would this song be without MORE COWBELL?



    Although Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" should get the cowbell award, in my opinion. :rolleyes:

    Kissin' My Love-Cold Blood w/Lydia Pence

    Most any other Tower Of Power w/David Garibaldi on the drums. "Oakland Stroke" or "What Is Hip" comes to mind.

    I did not read through all 9 pages of replies so forgive me if this song was mentioned already...

    Many said Fleetwood Mac, but I haven't seen this:



    And then of course there's "everything surf"

    Stuart Copeland and Every Little thing she Does is Magic.
    Saw them live in the early 80s .That guy really fills the sound in that band and I'm not a great fan of drummers but he's good and adds something melodic to his playing.

    I believe Frank Zappa thought highly of this group.

    Always impressed with this one, although the whole album is very drums-centric in a good way



    TO stay on Genesis, what about this



    But this was the one that came to mind first. Not virtuosic, but the drums are the song

    And this one defined drums as they are recorded from the mid-60s onward!

    I did a search of this thread and didn't see this one submitted.

    So....this would be my submission: Blind Faith - Do What You Like


    Be smart...stay safe...have a great weekend.

    Surprised Aynsley Dunbar hasn't been mentioned.
    Bands he's played for reads like who's who ....
    Blew me away when I saw him on tour with Eric Burdon.

    This one is pretty good, but whether the drums are defining the song, with Jack Bruce, Steve Winwood, Lou Reed, ..........

    Our version of State Trooper. I don't have my notes, but I believe there were 16 separate drum tracks on it.
