So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


What's missing?

Flipping channels today and heard an old 70s rock song.

Made me think of something rock songs today are missing: more cowbell.

Not a lot of cowbell in Papa Roach and Chevelle. No sirree.

More cowbell, I say.

    Ooh. Music. A topic close to my heart.

    A litte more cowbell would be nice, but there is too much of a good thing.

    The problem, I think, is that many drummers today are following generic models of drummers before them. That is not to say there aren't good drummers still out there. Tool's drummer, Danny Carey, is probably one of the most inventive guys around. For the number of beats he uses, he's such a minimalist. Very cool stuff.

    Then there is the best drummer on the planet, Dream Theater's Mike Portnoy is just phenomenal.

    Danny Carey is an amazing drummer, but his non-music life is scary. I saw Tool a few years back (I went to see the opening act Tricky) and the music was the best part...Maynard drove me crazy with his "look how shy I am"...and never acknowledged the audience.

    As far as greatest drummer on the planet...Neil Peart of Rush will always be the one that blows me away. I have bought Rush concert videos just to watch him is close to unreal!

    Another guy that blew my mind was Abe Laboriel Jr. who is a session guy, but drums for Paul McCartney on tour some...HUGE guy, but just brings it!!!

    I could go on and on about music as its my number one hobby, but I will save all of you from my ranting:-)

    I don't want to go on and on as music is one of my main hobbies, but I'm a huge Rush fan also. Have only seen them live once, but what a show (1993 Pensacola, kick off tour for Counterparts -- awesome!).

    But, I still think Portnoy's the best. He wouldn't be doing what he's doing if Pert hadn't been there, but he's surpased Pert. I mean, on Octavarium you'd think three different kits were going. It's amazing.

    This coming from a singer/wannabe guitarist.

    I always liked Rush, too.
