Unsourced bands[edit]

There's a large list of bands on this article that have supposedly used the AFAIK rare two drummers at a time. Out of these bands, the only that i am sure of having used them are the Allman Brothers and Slipknow. I KNOW that metallica and other bands have not. This list should require sources for every one of its entries, no exception. Until then, I'm going to remove the list, except the ones I mentioned earlier. - Evan Seeds (talk) 04:53, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

I removed the Lamb of God reference because it was mistakenly put in there as a reference to double-bass drumming - not the same thing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:05, 25 January 2007

Bright Eyes used double drumming on Digital Ash In A Digital Urn, and The Moody Blues have used double drumming live (not sure about it on albums). Other than that I don't know about the rest, through the ones which have information about their use should probably stay. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:53, 31 May 2007

Quite right, I've removed the section. Let's not re-introduce this section without a source for every single entry. -Lilac Soul (talk contribs count) 18:38, 11 June 2008 (UTC)


Unless I'm mistaken, I saw a live clip of the song "Heart of Hearts" a while ago and I seem to recall two drummers? Demonofthefall 10:58, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Other bands[edit]

Something should definatly be said of the Grateful Dead... The Doobie Brothers, (sometimes had 3) just to name 2 older bands. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Palijer (talkcontribs) 18:40, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Relevant bands listed for possible re-entry[edit]

Bands prominetly with two drummers: The Allman Brothers Band The Grateful Dead Derek Trucks Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival Do Make Say Think

Limited useage of two drummers: Miles Davis: Bitches Brew Frank Zappa: mid-late '70s incarnation of the Mothers Ornette Coleman Double Quartet: Free Jazz King Crimson James Brown (mostly traded off spots to play, not in tandem) Genesis The Doobie Brothers ...and You Will Know Us by the Trail of the Dead

Two or more drummers is a common facility for "shedding" in the modern gospel school of kit drumming. One can search youtube for "gospel chops shredding" and other such keywords for this. Usually one drummer will play a simple beat while the other goes nuts with a solo, and they trade back and forth...more often than not, this is not part of a song.

There are a ton more I'm not sure about. But Those two lists are — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peachslide (talkcontribs) 08:54, 22 September 2009‎


This article has no sources and has needed some for years now (see #Unsourced bands, above). Perhaps it should be deleted? Hyacinth (talk) 14:51, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
