It occurred to me that even though I was a drummer back then as well I had actually never really paid much attention to the drumming in the band. So some interesting things pop into mind when I heard the Grateful Dead recently:
The two drummers and the band, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, seem to be rarely spoken about in the drumming world. What are your opinions- Is it because they are not spectacular drummers? What is your opinion about the drumming level? Do you think one is better than the other? Very good drums? Mediocre?
Another thing occurred to me the other day-these two seem to play together quite well. I would think that to be very difficult-meaning having two drummers. I do not think I would be very comfortable having another drummer playing along with me. Would you? What is your opinion about the whole two drummer thing in general? Where else have you seen it work well?
