    I was thinking about how cool it would be to jam with John Bonham or Keith Moon and it got me thinking about which legendary dude I would like to jam with for a couple hours.

    A number of names came to me but let's face it... I wouldn't be able to hang with Neil Peart. :help: Buddy Rich? , probably not.

    I do think I could probably hang with Bonham and throw out some riffs. Mick Fleetwood might be fun. Peter Criss would be a trip.

    But after giving it some thought, I concluded that I would absolutely LOVE to jam with Ringo Starr for a bit! I mean, what fun, huh? and locking in a groove with Ringo?! That's insane in the membrane :wacky:

    So, who would be your legendary drummer choice to jam with? :bassist:

    Buddy Rich...it would be a very short jam, then I would get thrown off the bus.

    Ginger Baker...inventive, flexible.

    Buddy Rich. I got to jam with Max Roach in the early 90's, but I would have loved to gotten to play with two of the greats in jazz.

    When i was growing up, there were only two jazz records in our house. One was Barney Kessel with Ray Brown and Max Roach.

    Vinnie Colaiuta. Awesome chops, listens and responds well, anything jazz or rock he absoluely kills. Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock...

    Ringo for me, too. He may not be the greatest drummer in rock, but he just seems like such a pleasant guy to hang with. Speaking. Strictly I’d go with Ginger Baker, but really I couldn’t see myself hanging around him without getting frustrated with his attitude and bailing. Life’s too short to jam with difficult people.
