Default Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

Inspiration and influence are kind of odd with me, and not always the same thing.

I think of inspiration as someone who makes me want to play or play like them, and then influence as someone whose playing I have actually incorporated into my own, whether consciously or unconsciously.

For instance, I hadn't listened to the Moody Blues in decades, and then I checked out some of their old stuff I used to like and damned if I hadn't been copping Graeme Edge....

Ringo Starr
Jeff Porcaro
Hal Blaine
Joao Palma (first two Brasil '66 albums and Jobim and others after that)
Elvin Jones
Gene Krupa
Zig Modeliste
Brant Bjork
