i think hes very under-rated i mean sure he has his real easy beats in another brick in the wall and such but since david gilmour and roger waters are the stars in the band you forget to realize how good of a drummer he is and he should be noticed :)
i think he is, he always has amazing beats set out. Also theres that spanish acoustic section of high hopes where hes doing that drum roll which i think is really cool.
plus his drum set-up is wicked in the Pompeii DVD.
this is like the "is david gilmour good' poll of course people are going to answer yes. i do think he is under rated though becasue more people listen for daves solos or rogers lyrics instead... listen to the intro in Time for proof :blues:
brill drummer very underated
nick is a class drummer. every time i look at pompeii, shivers.... anyway, one drummer i think everyone forgets about is buddy rich. he did things that kids now are only learning. he was a quiet man and knew what he was doing. i know he wasnt in the same vein as rock drummers, but he knew his stuff way before any of them did. he is the elvis of drummers. a true original
