    5 is so hard to choose, for every 1 that was major, there are so many other drummers we need to listen to for that bigger story.


    from art blakey, i went on to elvin jones, tony williams, max roach, jack dejohnette, jimmy cobb, lenny white, al foster, buddy rich, joe morello

    from tony williams, i found john mclaughlin, and discovered billy cobham, peter erskine, airto moreira

    from billy cobham, i found john scofield, discovered bill stewart,adam nussbaum

    from jaco, i found pat metheny, discovered paul wertico, danny gottlieb

    from akira jimbo, i went on to harvey mason, alex acuna, carter beauford, found steve gadd

    from karen carpenter, the trail lead to buddy rich, then stopped there

    from bozzio, it looked like yoshiki tried to emulate him (even down to the big hair) i found traces of colauita, found chad wackerman, discovered wackerman had a younger brother.

    from vinnie, it just stopped right there, he is just madness

    from wynton marsalis, discovered there was a whole family of musicians, i found jason marsalis

    from steve gadd, found dave weckl, vinnie colauita, jeff hamilton, rediscovered peter erskine

    from chick corea, i rediscovered dave weckl and pattituci

    from jeff porcaro, i found simon phillips, found more harvey mason and joel rosenblatt

    from oscar peterson, i discovered martin drew, bobby durham

    and it goes on and on

    so many different points of discovery, and some of them hold that missing piece to a puzzle.


    i would like to listen to as many musicians and drummers as possible, its so hard to keep the list to 5!!! sorry hehe
