    Guys... it is set up so that anyone can add drummers to the thread. Simply follow the rule of first post.

    We welcome your inclusion as well as any other thoughts or opinions you may have on that particular drummer. Our goal is not only to list these players but add to the substance of that listing. What do you think about them? What albums did they play on? Did they play with other bands or mainly just one? How is their technique? What about their set up? Etc.
