he's one of my favorite drummers, but making a statement like that on ns, or on any forum, is not particularly smart. Ever heard Carter play anything besides dmb stuff? Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl, Marco Minneman, Tony Stewart, Buddy Rich, etc etc etc can be thrown in. Pretty much what I'm trying to say is; You'll probably get flamed.

i saw them 2 ngihts ago and i dont think their concert is the best ever...but the drummer is amazing!
AHH shut up! It is non stop and theother thing is that when I'm fucking singing in it sounds even BETTER than when I'm singing out!
Shut up! Fuck you! You fuckin dick! Always ney saying everything I create! You piece of shit, you create something like inward singing! You fucking shit you fucking sit in your tower...
beauford can slam...but c'mon, put him against weckyl, or bozzio and chambers? you might think that these guys are better than weckyl, but his theory is so much more evolved than any other drummer right now. buddy rich was close, but weckyl is in a zone.
this is suuuuch a subjective topic.. i think it really boils down to what style of music you're talking about.. has anyone seen carter's video 'under the table and drumming' ? he breaks down all his techniques and everything, its really worth the money if you're a drummer and are looking to improve your skills
I saw them at riverbend and the concert was amazing, they played so much old stuff, and WARREN HAZE came out and played with them, Warren rips up the guitar!

not really, weckyl is learned and superbly skilled in all genres of music. that is the mark of a great musician. don't get me wrong on beauford, he is sicwitit. weckyl is just on a different level of theory than these guys. for example, the way he fills out a run, breaks (so you can actually tell where he is at(not just faking and getting by)) and then comes back in with complete harmonic confluence and four independent beats rolling from every extremity. simply amazing, listen to him and you'll pick up on what i'm talking about.
i'm definitely not doubting weckl's abilities, but im saying its hard to say theres a 'best drummer' period. you wouldn't be able to pit weckl against barker or brooks wackerman, because they're obviously more trained in the alt/punk arena, and just the opposite. look at it this way, modern drummer magazine puts out a readers choice list of all the best drummers in their respective genres, not a 'best drummer, period' list.. so im confused why any of us think we're able to say someone is the best drummer across the board?! myself included!
Eh? What's this? I used to be a huge fan, but over the last couple of months I've been listening to a lot of other stuff and DMB has taken the backburner. I used to be really active on a DMB board too, but then I found NS....so what's up with Roi leaving?
