Frank's Favorite Drummers: Bobby Jarzombek

Being a drummer myself, I'd have to admit I tend to hone in on his business more so than the rest of the band. It's a well known saying that "the drummer can make or break any band", but there is a lot more to it than hitting things as fast as you can to be amongst the top metal drummers of today. Much consideration went into the following list including: Agility, Diversity, Endurance, Style, Precision, Embellishment, & Showmanship.

Now, I'm not a big fan of "Top 10" lists, I personally feel there is no place for competition in music, but when Rob approached me with the idea of talking about my favorite drummers, how could I decline? I now present my 10 favorites in no particular order in this 2-week long countdown. (Give me a break! it was hard enough to narrow a list down to 10.)

I talk about this guy all the time. He is hands down one of my all time favorite drummers in the world to watch. Talk about a dude who has it all, complexity, agility, and some of the sickest phrasing and stick control I've ever seen. He is as diverse as he is entertaining, being able to move through several genres of music like no ones business, not to mention he plays with cymbals behind his head!

You may recognize Jarzombek from such bands as Spastic Ink, Riot, Halford, and Sebastian Bach. The first track on this video clip "Peppered Cancer" and the last track "School" features Bobby's brother Ron Jarzombek (Blotted Science, Spastic Ink, Watchtower) on the axe.
