Stuck In Thee Garage #86: June 26, 2015

Drummers can serve vastly different roles in bands. They can be timekeepers, keeping the beat solidly and unspectacularly. They can be showy and all over the place. They can make a band better, and they can make a band worse. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I play songs with good drum parts in hour 2. I steered clear of the usual classic rock suspects in favor of acts from the last 20 years or so.

Which means no Neil Peart...or even Nick Andopolis:
