With that being said, this lady right here had one of the more unique approaches of actually getting down on her hands and knees.

Let’s all agree, Rock n’ Roll can’t live without the drummers. Believe or not they are the unsung heroes of music, the guardians of time and groove, and their beats decide if people actually dance or not. One question remains, who are the most influential, creative and revolutionary drummers of all time? Without any further discuss, let’s get into it.

1. John Bonham

When people started to listen to “Whole Lotta Love” for their first time, it felt like a new king had arrived. Those thunderous sounds were made by none other than John Bonham, thanks to Led zeppelin’s brilliant madness. They were four-headed monster, but Bonham was something else.

An American musician Dave Grohl admitted that he seriously tried for years to copy Bonham’s lightning speed playstyle. Bonham’s sound and speed surpass like no one else’s, still managed to show us it wasn’t that hard to preform like him. Even after he passed away, many people hailed Bonham as the greatest rock drummer of all time.  

2. Keith Moon

When Moon joined to “The Who”, they were already a messy group. With him backing them, the four band members became a circus both on stage and behind the scenes. Thanks to Moon as “lead drummer” the band gained proper foundation.

The Bass guitarist John Entwistle said about Moon: “His breaks were melodic. Because he tried to play with everyone in the band at once”. Moon was also known by is antics on the stage for example blowing up his drumset. His Invaluable contribution to drumming that gave him his legend status.

3. Neil Peart

When Neil Peart auditioned to the rock bend “Rush”, their guitarist Alex Lifeson said about Peart: “We were so blown away by Neil’s playing”. “It was very Keith Moon-like, very active, and he hit his drums so hard” he added. Although Peart’s unique wildness reminded them Moon in many ways, it also defied him on some levels.

Peart was a lot more methodical, almost mathematical in his approach compare to Moon. Peart was one of the drummers that elevated his status to more than just a drummer, but an arranger and composer as well.

4. Ginger Baker

Baker was yet another mysterious musical talent that peeked out from a perfect storm. Thanks to his team up with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce, Baker could play to his heart’s desire. Baker had jazz background and then he entered to psychedelic jam rock scene which lead his trio to heights and to a whole new level which never was seen before.

Baker was more into African beats, as was stated by Afrobeat co-creator Tony Allen: “He understands the African beat more than any other Westerner”. His inhibited passion for music and his unchained personality were unmistakably presents very time he get o the stage.

5. Hal Blaine

Wrecking Crew was group of Los Angeles musicians who played on many of the hits that recorded in the `60s and `70s. Hal Blaine, the group drummer, played in hits by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, The Supremes, and even The Beach Boys on their legendary album Pet Sounds. Some stories say that Blaine is the most recorded drummer in history.

Blaine even helped Phil Spector ,a producer, to create his “Wall Of Sound” on hits like the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby”. As he put himself “I’m not a flashy drummer. I wanted to be a great accompanist”, Blaine managed to do that with some more achievements.

6. Benny Benjamin

The founder of Motown, Berry Gordy, had an in-house studio band called The Funk Brothers where they could play on all the records. Benny Benjamin was the drummer, the maestro and musical genius of the group. “He had a distinctive knack for executing various rhythms all at the same time,” said Gordy. “A pulse, a steadiness, that kept the tempo better than a metronome.”

Thanks to Benjamin’s expert hands, songs like The Temptations’ “My Girl” and Barrett Strong’s “Money (That’s What I Want)” were possible to be made. Even American singers and songwriters were inspired by him! Wonder even said, “Man, he was one of the major forces in the Motown sound. Benny could’ve very well been the baddest”.

7. Gene Krupa

One of the all-time greatest drummers, Neil Peart, once said the next thing about Gene Krupa – “…was the first rock drummer, in very many ways”.  Peart even explained that Krupa was one of the drummers that could both “command the spotlight” and “be celebrated for his solos”.

Krupa’s playing influenced many people, even Keith Moon and John Bonham. The fact that he came before them gives him different kind of reverence in the drum community.

8. Mitch Mitchell

Stewart Copeland, an American musician once said about Mitch Mitchell, the `60s drum legend, “All of this stuff I did that I was rather proud of, I thought I came up with it. But no, I got it from Mitch”. Mitch Mitchell was weird enough and could hold down the fort along with Jimi Hendrix’s weirdness.

Even Roger Taylor a musician from Queen said, “He played the kit like a song, it was just wonderful. But with this rolling ferocious attack on the whole kit. Total integration into the song. Not just marking time.”

9. Charlie Watts

The person that because of him “roll” added to the “Rolling Stones” was none other than Charlie Watts. Even when the “Rolling Stones” were still in their early stages, Watts was a well-known and respected drummer across London. At first, they couldn’t afford to hire him but as “Rolling Stones” buzz spread out and barely could be ignored, they won Watts over.

Watts provided steady backbeat rhythm support on stage like no other. The guitarist of the band, Keith Richards, said about Watts – “When we got Charlie, that really made it for us. Charlie can rush like mad and still make it feel great. That’s his style.”

10. Stewart Copeland

Funny but interesting fact about Stewart Copeland is that Copeland made just as much of an impact with what he didn’t play than with what he did play. His grooves aren’t so simple and easy to mimic and this what made him better than most of the drummers.

Similar to other British rockers from his era, his complicated yet special grooves added to his band’s sound in a subtle yet powerful way. Copeland even lent his talent to many other artists over his career.

The President Of Microsoft Calls To Investigate Apple

The president of Microsoft, Brad Smith, says that the app store should work under supervisions and regulations.

Few days before Apple’s big event – WWDC where Apple will announce new products and developments such as IOS 14, IPad OS 14, WatchOS 7, new Mac and new iMac, Apple find itself under criticism – The European Union opened an investigation about new information that came from an ex-employee who claimed that Apple keeps recording users without their knowledge and the founder of Basecamp called them “gangsters” because they rejected his app’s version update due to the fact the billing system of the app is not related to Apple.

Now, one of Apple’s biggest competitors – Microsoft, is on the offence.

blank

Microsoft’s president Brad Smith interviewed to the site “politico” and said that he is against Apple’s policy about apps. Smith is in favor of the investigations against Apple and said that their behavior eliminates competition.

Smith said:

“They impose requirements that increasingly say there is only one way to get on to our platform and that is to go through the gate that we ourselves have created. In some cases they create a very high price per toll — in some cases 30% of your revenue has to go to the toll keeper.” Smith continued – “The time has come — whether we are talking about D.C. or Brussels — for a much more focused conversation about the nature of app stores, the rules that are being put in place, the prices and the tolls that are being extracted and whether there is really a justification in antitrust law for everything that has been created”.

blank

According to Smith, for a long time, tech giants such as Apple and Google, try to create one way to do things, and it is their way only. For example, Fortnite tried to publish their mobile version outside Google Play in order to avoid paying such high fee, which can get as high as 30%, but lost the case in court and now they must publish the game on Google’s store.

Microsoft know what they are talking about – in the 90’s Microsoft tried to fight Netscape, which developed internet browsers and was the biggest competitors to Microsoft’s internet explorer, by bundle internet explorer with every copy on Windows. Microsoft got many fines and had to pay compensation.

blank

Apple responded to the investigation and said on Tuesday –  “it’s disappointing the European Commission is advancing baseless complaints from a handful of companies who simply want a free ride, and don’t want to play by the same rules as everyone else.”

3 of the biggest names in the NBA who won’t be playing in the traditional All-Star Game are Kyrie Irving (mostly due injuries), Bradley Beal and Devin Booker.

Beal said – “A little pissed off about it … It’s disrespectful. … I’m gonna try and get my team in the playoffs for sure.”

Devin Booker said – “It was always a goal of mine, but it just re-proves the point that the NBA is different than the game that I fell in love with at the beginning of all the best players in the All-Star game growing up, And now it’s an entertainment, drama, political-filled league. But we’re a part of it now. It pays well, so I guess we should be quiet about it.”

Other NBA players shared their thoughts about it –

And on the other side of the coin, there will be 9 first time all stars in the game, on of them is Bam Adebayo who got the news with his family –
