12 Drummers Drumming

235_Pearl.jpg


If you were going to depict the last stanza in the song The 12 Days of Christmas on the internet, how would you do it? I could take the easy way out and use a video of a marching band drumline, but what’s the fun in that? Instead, I found videos of a dozen well-known drummers. They are not neccessarily the best (although some are), because I was working with YouTube’s limitations. I rejected ten-minute drum solos, and camera phone shots from the nosebleed section, and some drummers just aren’t there at all. But there are some pretty good ones here.

The twelve drummers are: John Bonham, Buddy Rich, Animal, Gene Krupa, Keith Moon, Billy Cobham, Karen Carpenter, Neil Peart, Phil Collins, Elvin Jones, Sheila E, and Alex Van Halen.
