Part of Steve's job was to drum into us how important what we were doing actually would be to the world.
Some records with drum machines on them sound phony and plastic. It all depends on how you use the tools.
Playing the drums hurts my back.
I played drums on Keith Carradine's first record.
Really rejoice in being yourself. Have your own drumbeat.
Drums just always sounded like the most fun part of that good music for me.
I played some Yamaha drums that I like a lot. And I like the Yamaha people a lot too. They've been really nice to me and The Band.
A bass player has to think and play like a bass player. A drummer has to play and think like a drummer, and stay out of the way of the vocalist. The guitar player has to respect everybody else.
I've always been the DJ or the bass player or the drummer, somebody in the background. I don't think anybody who knows me personally would say that I'm particularly shy or introverted, but I'm definitely not like Mr. Attention.
I don't have perfect pitch. My drums sound like a drummer, not a drum machine.
The drummer is stereotypically the dumb guy. Maybe that's why I always respect drummers who do more than drum.
I don't take breaks, man. In the past, I used to spend my free time getting in trouble, and now I spend it working on my music. If I'm not playing drums with my cover band, Chevy Metal, I'm working on songs for myself.
In the Foo Fighters, my main job is to be the drummer, and that's enough.
Yes, I always say that we're a National League band. What I mean is, if you play an instrument, you have to sing. So I always call our drummer up. Even the drummer has to take a turn on the microphone.
I'm not going to do the Ben Harper house record or the Ben Harper drum 'n' bass record.
