Thanks Tom - I am sure they are all robust but I’ve not heard of any of them

Can you put a band against each name - that might help

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

Pete Thomas - Primarily Elvis Costello as an Attraction but the list is long of the people he's played with, there are even some you will know and like C. Tom Waits (no relation) has referred to him as "one of the best rock drummers alive."

Terry Chambers - XTC

Pete De Freitas - Echo & The Bunnymen

Steve White - Style Council/Paul Weller/James Taylor Quartet

John Maher - Buzzcocks

Could well be C. I shall remove it and place it where it should be. Nevertheless the sentiment is the same for this thread really isn’t it? Top 20 drummers, more like any drummer that hasn’t been listed so far.
