Does Larry Mullen have a unique/distinctive style of drumming? I read that U2's first label offer was to sign the band without Larry. But his work sounds so great on their first album "Boy" I just can't imagine another drummer fitting with them. Maybe it was just too unconventional or what? It seems like perhaps some drummers have copied his style at times. I know that he doesn't do anything that is technically brilliant, but I do like his style. I play with a drummer that is more of a standard, softer "pop" sound. So there is the usual run-of-the-mill rock syncopations in the KICK DRUM. But I was listening to a U2 song the other day and it seemed like he was definitely playing quarter notes in the kick drum. (I have not listened to his drumming that closely on other U2 songs). Is the quarter note a unique thing to most of their songs? Or is it common in rock? I'd appreciate any thoughts on his technique, etc.
