:∵·∴·∵: (crüt), Tuesday, 21 May 2019 22:41 (three months ago) link

i'm not worried, i just think it's weird
is "being wrong about how rhythm works" his thing? that's weird!

charlie watts is a hero for refusing to play the hi hat & snare at the same time. he put more swagger in the backbeat than anyone.

Swagger? He looks stiff as fuck when he's drumming, and you can hear it.

i can see why you might think that re: stiffness, but i disagree.

Kenney Jones was a great drummer, particularly on the stuff Small Faces did for Immediate.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 21 May 2019 23:17 (three months ago) link

I'd rate Kenney Jones, Mitch Mitchell and Mick Avory all higher than Ginger Baker, actually.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Tuesday, 21 May 2019 23:17 (three months ago) link

Kenney Jones is a seriously great drummer.

Charlie Watts drumming is cool because it sounds like someone getting beat up in a really systematic but bluesy manner

That's actually the perfect description of the time Watts decked Mick Jagger in 1984.
