      Hang on, hang on, Digits. He's asking for five greatest drummers not three. This is an entirely different thread!

                            [*]Jeff Porcaro - because he can make ANY song sound better and make it move along from start to finish, driving the control, feel, and dynamics of a tune.[*]Ralph Humphrey - because he is sick: just listen to the song "St. Alphonzo's Pankcake Breakfast" on the album Apostrophe by Frank Zappa. [*]Bill Bruford, Alan White - because of Yes albums like Yessongs, Relayer, etc . . and all the Bruford solo albums, which I have.[*]Carl Palmer, Phil Collins - because of ELP albums and (early) Genesis albums, and some BrandX albums which Collins plays on.[*]Harvey Mason, Rick Marrotta, Roger Taylor, Gerry Brown, Steve Gadd, Billy Cobham - because they all play on a lot of albums I have and I enjoy listening to them.[/list=a]

                            Who is Gilson Lavis???

                            BTW: I saw the Tubes last month in Indy. Ohhh man. Prairie Prince IS awesome. I was only familiar with a couple of their hits. (Fee Waybill ROCKS!)However, I was impressed with their jazz/funk side. Coincidentally, I was hit in the chest with an autographed drum stick.

                              Gilson Lavis was Squeeze's orginal drummer from 78-91. The guys is truly one of the tastiest and slickest. Ambidextrous beyond belief. Classy, tasty, and a great showman too.

                              I saw the Tubes many times, Prince is a monster. Waybill is the best frontman, what a voice, and what antics! Did he drive the motorcycle out of stage like usual? Tubes are one of the most versatile bands around, no 2 songs are alike. Roger Steen is killer on guitar (the blond guy on the left. Rick Anderson on bass is no slouch either. Once you see them live there's no turning back. I hung with Waybill, Prince, and the rest of The Tubes a few times, they are cool and funny dudes!
