    Paice, Baker, Peart, Laing, some of those others listed, too. I'll add Cozy Powell to that grouping.

    I must admit like many guitarists are my favourite musicians within a rock band set up BUT!. In recent years I developed a liking to listening to a rock bands drums and drummers and some rock drummers from rocks golden age (1968-1976) were absolutely outstandingly amazing to listen to.

    As Ginger Baker once said in a 1991 video about the 1960s 'super group' Cream-

    "A band is only as good as it's drummer right?.. An average band with a good drummer can sound like a good band and a good band with a great drummer can sound like a great band and a great band with a super drummer can sound like a super band. A good drummer makes the other guys in the band sound good that's your gig you make the other guys in the band sound GOOD!." Ginger Baker.
