Modern Musicology #35 – What Makes a Great Drummer

Modern Musicology #35 - What Makes a Great Drummer

The spotlight is on the drummers this week as Anthony, Stephanie and Alan are joined by IRA ELLIOT, the drummer from the band NADA SURF, to talk about what makes a great drummer! We debate the qualities that a good drummer needs to have and cite some of our favorite players, like Neil Peart  (Rush), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Phil Collins (Genesis), Keith Moon (The Who), Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), Gina Schock (The Go-Go’s), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Michael Derosier (Heart), and many others. And then we attempt to sing to each other our favorite drum fills! But first we get an update on Stephanie’s single “There Was a Time” (which Ira played on) and talk about what we’ve been listening to.
