I love drummers. Drummers are the bass player's best friend.

Keith Moon was definitely one of the best. I also like Phil Collins, who is a very talented all around musician and singer.

John Bonham is one of my favorite drummers as well as the one and only Ringo Starr.

Actually...
That guy is MUCH better looking than Lemmy.
Plus his bass is cooler...
From what I can tell, it's a 79 Musicaman Sabre...
(As in Leo Fender.. As opposed to Ernie Ball...)

Now I am so homesick for my younger days! One of my favorite Johnny Cash songs is his version of I've Been Everywhere. The recording in Folsom Prison was cool, with the inmates all hollering in the background. And Tennessee Ernie did a recording of Down in the Dungeon with a hellacious thunderstorm rumbling in the background.

As for the rest, I like .38 Special, AC-DC, Fred Neil, Allman Brothers, Sly and the Family Stone, It's a Beautiful Day, CCR, Confederate Railroad, Hank Williams [Sr more than Jr], Midnight Oil, Mother Maybelle and the Carters, Seldom Scene, Neil Diamond, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Cream, Hendryx, Ritchie Havens, Heart, the Righteous Brothers, and sooo many more.

DH was on the fringes of the Seattle music scene in the 60s and played backup for Henrdryx in some of their informal jams, but he didn't want to get into it, said he was smart enough even then to know if he did, he'd be dead in 10 years or less.

I don't know about 'younger' - I also remember Rosemary Clooney, Teresa Brewer, and Harry Belafonte.

But I do have some, ah, eclectic tastes in music. One of my best friends since I've known from grade school is a professional musician in CA, she stayed there after she got her master's from Stanford. She plays classical, and teaches, does contracting for other musicians, etc. And while we were in college together I got a very good grounding in classical music and music theory. My main problem is that I can read a score and hear it in my head, I just can't get it to come out my fingers. But everyone needs an appreciative audience, right?

Don't have any names - it was just pick up stuff in someone's house, that kind of thing. But he did it for at least a year, only he never talked a lot about it, because he missed it and really would have liked to be part of the show even though he knew [and he was right, believe me] it would have killed him. What always amazed me is that none of the other things he did killed him, either - like street racing.

Besides... That's not an accordion hanging off his shoulder.
