So when did it become cool for a band’s drummer to utilize only one beat pattern, for every freakin’ song??? Is it just me or is Franz Ferdinand missin’ the boat when it comes to decent drumming. I mean, the first time its alright, but every song???

If you want decent drumming just go check out some great bands you’ve probably already heard of: Carter Beauford (of DMB) or Neil Pert (Rush).

To all you aspiring drummers out there: drop the pounding bass, repetive smacks on that snare, and jam, baby! Mix it up, make it fresh! Learn to play with the music, feel it, not just drive it with some monotonous beat that a 7 year old can pound out on his mom’s kitchen pans!

Alright enough spewing for one day! Have a great one!
