Summary "They are all here, the greatest Classic Rock drummers, the men who, as much as any guitar player or singer, defined the sounds of their bands. With an eye to style as much as technique, Ken Micallef has created profiles and portraits of the most significant artists of the genre, from the down-home funk of The Band's Levon Helm and the deceptively simple styles of Charlie Watts and Ringo Starr to the hard-rock assault of Deep Purple's Ian Paice and the polyrhythmic odysseys of The Police's Stewart Copeland." "Classic Rock Drummers includes a brief biography, accurate setup information, style and technical analysis, and a selected listening discography of each drummer, as well as an audio CD with accompanying music notation. Playing along with the audio examples will help you match the feel of the grooves and inspire you to new levels of self-expression. Classic Rock Drummers is an indispensable tool for any drummer or anyone interested in the great stylists of rock'n'roll."--book jacket.
