I put this question to Rod earlier and I thought it might be a good poll since there's a few parallels with their careers, although one is much more famous and successful in terms of record sales, but both started in a rock band then abandoned it for a solo career.

Great Poll-ice Thread!  LOL!

Dude!!!

STING
THE POLICE
STEWART!!!!


Top 4 drummers for me

NEIL
SIMON
STEWART
DAVE WECKL
What about Gavin???


I would tend to take Tim Alexander from Primus over Gavin.  Gavin is in my TOP TEN.
What about Vinnie Colauita and Dennis Chambers??

DUDE!!!  THANK YOU!  I just got Derek's new Japan cd with Simon on the drums!!  PUMPED!!!!!!!!

I love Vinnie and Dennis.  

I would go Billy Cobham higher than those two cats.
Derek Sherinian? I have that album too, not Japanese but I only have about 100 Japanese CDs among the thousands!

There's an interview here with Simon from a few days ago:



Holy Shit!  THANK YOU!  I need to find an hour to watch this.  Jesus!  He looks 80!!!!  WTF?
It's the lockdown hair and beard!

Mine just looks the same as normal! :16ton:

Yeah mate true.  I just got a hair cut last week.  All good here too.
Well I don't have haircuts! Except with my own clippers once a month, just dead ends!

We'll be ok, Sean Payton can scheme with any QB under centre. Taysom Hill will look like Russell Wilson against the Clowns on Sunday!

Sting is, and has always been, obnoxious.  But the Cops blow doors on Porkpie Hat, and Sting is light years ahead of Wilson musically.  I understand Wilson is a good producer though.

A great record.

I personally recommend deadwing or in absentia as starting points.
