    Default Who is the better drummer....

    boyfriend and I have a bet going. who would you consider a better drummer?

    Keith Moon of the Who
    VS.
    Carter Beauford of the Dave Matthews Band?


    money is on this, i couldn't figure out how to set up a poll so we are just going to follow the replies.

    I don't care if there are better people than these two, just compare them to each other. after several answers (and i win) you can hijack this thread all you want

    I thought this was going to be between 2 drummers that would make you think about the question, not laugh. But Keith Moon of course.

    You should dump the bf if he thinks Carter is a better drummer than a dead guy who people think is better than lots of living drummers.

    Carter is a great drummer. But Keith is a LEGENDARY drummer. There's no contest here. Why not Moon versus Bonham? Would be a more interesting (and fair!) debate.

    Exactly! Rskapcat, you're a cool girl.
    And don't hate me for not sending you your mixes. I sent them out the other day but they were returned due to the new stamps or whatever so I should re-send them out soon

    Who the fuck is Carter Beauford? And dont say the drummer from Dave Mathews. Talk to me like i'm not a 30-something housewife.

    well if i get a half vote more for what i think of how they were live, it is moon .... i only saw keith three times and carter many more times then that, but the energy of KM was beyond even words ... we were about the same age and that is some of it, but early on, it wasnt roger or pete you went to see, it was keith moon, to see what antics he might be up to, but also to see one of the premier drummers in the 60's... when i went to see Dave it never was to see Carter so to speak (yes i think there are/were better drummers but you put in that caviet) .... cr****

    Beauford explains his unusual playing style in his instructional video "Under The Table & Drumming", attributing his use of left-hand-lead on a right-handed kit to playing his own kit in front of a mirror as a child in an attempt to emulate his favorite drummers, like Buddy Rich. He unknowingly set up his drums in reverse of whichever performer and set that he had in mind, in an attempt to make the mirrored image of himself match that of the audience's perspective, as he had seen it on stage and TV. This helped him to become completely ambidextrous at a very early age, albeit by accident

    I find Beauford's drumming cold and mathematical and detached. Moon is (was) unhinged, incendiary. Beauford reminds me of Steve Vai, a technically proficient musician without an ounce of soul. I'd much rather listen to music on the edge of collapse rather than the edge of academia. Rock & roll is for fucking. I can't imagine fucking to the Dave Matthews Band, and a lot of that is Beauford's fault. Moon is for fucking: Hair pulling, nails scratching skin as they run along the spine.

    The only drummers to ever catch my attention were Bonham, Moon, and the dude from Deerhoof... and I'm the resident Dave Matthews Band fan of the board.
