Metal drummers looks impressive sometimes. But it must be a lot easier than rock`n roll? I have 3 Metallica dvds, and Lars Ulrich have power, but the drumming is kinda slow compared to Roger for example.

My Question: Is Rock`n roll drumming harder and more exhausting than metal drumming?


Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

As a drummer myself, metal drumming is more demanding than rock drumming. I have played drums for 15 years and drumming is physical in the world of rock. If you played jazz drumming then you would be tired!

I have also heard that rock`n roll drumming is harder. Songs like now I`m here, hammer to fall etc. Rogers drumming on the WWRY dvd looks very exhausting.

Metaldrummers seems to have very good time between every drumhit.

I think Roger Taylor at his best was a great drummer. He made the songs sound huge. At his worst he was terrible, but it had much to do with the song choices live, and his drumsets!!

He was at his best 76-82.

Nah. I am not talking about mistakes. But for a while he was very boring.

I love most of Rogers drumming, so dont worry :)

In fact depends on the actual arrangement. A metal song with the same pattern over and over is much easier than Leroy Brown, for instance, but there are some very impressive drum parts in metal. Although some of those impressive things aren`t particularly technical.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I really like Roger's drumming at Milton Keynes... espesially "Back Chat".... on that track it sound very good and he plays very tight and precise but at the same time with a brilliant groove... What do u think.. ?
