"There's nothing wrong with personal development through playing an instrument, but what happens when it's treated as a sport? There is no scoreboard. [...] If you want razzle-dazzle...if you want to beat somebody up, be a boxer. All this time I thought drumming was art."
Vinnie Colaiuta

"I found that to really make money, you had to give up music. So I gave up money."
Mel Lewis

"All you have to do is be able to feel."
Art Blakey

"That's what the drummer is supposed to do. Keep the time. If you can do something else besides that, fine. But the time is essential and non-negotiable."
Elvon Jones

"You must own it to play it."
Roy Haynes

"The drum is the heart of music. The saxophone can play and then rest, as can all of them except the drums; the drummer keeps going - he can't afford to stop."
Papa Jo Jones

"I'll never play a drum solo you can't dance to."
Gene Krupa

"Every drummer that had a name, had a name because of his individual playing. He didn't sound like anybody else, So everybody that I ever listened to, in some form, influenced my taste."
"If you think you stink, you probably do."
Buddy Rich

"I'm not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I'm a drummer that sings a bit."
Phil Collins

"First and foremost I am a drummer. After that, I'm other things... But I didn't play drums to make money."
Ringo Starr

"To be a drummer you also have to be a musician."
Ian Paice

"Do you know why they call a drummer's seat a throne? Because drummers are kings and queens."
Ed Thigpen

"I'm still the best Keith Moon-style drummer in the world."
Keith Moon

"The drums have hogged a lot of the credit. We're as much - or more - cymbal players, as we are drummers."
Peter Erskine

"Drummers shouldn't just think of themselves as drummers. If you're going to be a musician, you should expand your horizons, compose things, and work with other instruments."
Stewart Copeland

"Drummers get bored. You tell them to play something simple, and it gets more complicated as they do it. If they're not a composer, if they don't have any kind of investment in the music, they'll just add a bit there and another bit there, and you think no! Don't do that. So you end up using a drum machine."
Phil Collins

"I don't have perfect pitch. My drums sound like a drummer, not a drum machine."
Taylor Hawkins

"I think that the rhythm sections, drummers in particular, are the unsuing heroes of the music. It's the rhythm section that has changed the styles from one period to the other."
Max Roach

...ufff... ich hoffe, es sind keine Doppelungen dabei.

"You go to a drum clinic and people watch you play. They come up to you and want to know how you did this and that. What they don't realize is that what you're doing is because of the context of the music, your imagination and your creativity, not because you're physically doing this or that."
Vinnie Colaiuta


"Some people want you to do [in studio] nothing but what is written. Some people want you to do everything on your own. And you'll get everything in between. The musicians who have had the experience, who have been fortunate enough to have gotten into it slowly and then got busy, busy, busy, where they have finally done everything, are the musicians the contractors call because they know they don't have to wait. They know you're reliable, you're going to be on time, you're going to be sober, and you are prepared for anything."
Hal Blaine


"I did a date with Jimmy Bowen, "Fever". I had never worked with Jim, but I had made the original record of "Fever", and it said on my part, "play like Shelly Manne". So I played it just like I played it originally. The guy came out and said I wasn't doing it right. When I told him I was Shelly Manne, he turned around and went back in the booth."
"It used to be that the engineers, the microphones and everything in the studio were there to serve the music and the musician. It's turned totally around now. The musician, especially the drummer, is supposed to be servicing the engineer, and that's bullshit. If you get a certain sound on your instrument, you get your own sound. They're trying to make you sound like somebody else who they particularly dig and who is particularly easy to record. You can't be concerned with that. They lock you in a closet. I heard some records the other day recorded years ago, and I'm not trying to say "Give me the good old days", because I like a lot of the music I hear now, but they used three mic's hanging up on the ceiling and the orchestra sounded great. In the orchestras nowadays, there are 12 mic's on the drums alone."
Shelly Manne


"You shouldn't get bugged with the engineers. You should just be happy that you were hired."
Steve Gadd

"It's not a compliment when somebody says, "Man, you play just like Buddy Rich." It's a compliment technically, probably, but not entirely."
Shelly Manne


"Each of us likes the other's playing more than our own.
Rick Marotta


"I’ve done a drum clinic in L.A. Nice kids but they all asked the same question. "How did you work out that fill?" I told them, "I don’t know." I don’t know! I feel it, it’s that particular day, who knows? Just play. Let your personality come out."
Manu Katché


"Oftentimes you are called upon to do things and you say, "Oh my God. I could never do that." But somehow you do it and that gives you a little more confidence for the next time you get into that situation."
Hal Blaine


"I try to copy every drummer I know. I take everything I see. Certain people you can't copy."
Jim Keltner

"I told people I was a drummer even before I had a drumset. I was a mental drummer."
Keith Moon


"It happens to us quite often-it feels as though I'm not playing my instrument, something else is playing it and that same thing is playing all three of our instruments. That's what I mean when I say it's frightening sometimes. Maybe we'll all play the same phrase out of nowhere. It happens very often with us."
Ginger Baker (ob er bei diesen Erlebnissen wohl wieder zugedröhnt war?... vermutlich)


"To me, the most important tool is not a physical or a technical one. It's more of a cerebral one. It's your brain. It's about having an interest in experimenting musically, perhaps touching on several different genres of music. No doubt, the most important tool is the mind. It's the willingness to experiment freely."
Mike Portnoy
