When I saw the title of this thread I thought it was about Eric Moore, the (ex)drummer for King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard!

Dude is one of the best drummers around. A Gospel Chops original. But I know some drummers that personally know him and they all talk about how much of a douchebag and dick head he is in real life. Apparently, his ego is insufferable.

Interesting hearsay!

These textual word things have been here for some time and apparently no one has opened an artery, strangled a puppy or backed over a child with their Dualie.
It’s always funny how many musicians and actors are vilified by reckless rumors, mainly growing from a dumb urban legend. I don’t know this fellow, never been to a clinic of his, nor know someone who knows him. I have no idea, but I tend to reserve judgment. Unless TMZ followed him around and has video evidence or I had a bad interaction with him online, I will tend to think of him in a neutral manner.

Eric Moore is one of my favorites. Studying his linear work alone is enough to keep anyone busy for years.

Even then, no one is a boy scout 24/7/365.

I ageee with your sentiments yet it’s up to the admins what kind of language is allowed on their forum, and they have a right to enforce it or do nothing. I don’t think the forum is publicly owned and operated.

Dude plays well gotta say those Reflectors suck the air right outta those fine drums .
Agree, but, I think that’s the defined attack he’s going for. Sacrificing tone to make the density of his playing more appreciable.

Funny that you mention studying what he’s doing. That was one of the first things I considered while watching the drum head video - slowing down playback and trying to learn what’s he doing.

Simply stating what I've heard around the community and from other drummers. There are a few professional drummers out here in the Bay Area who can't stand the dude. I mean, if you have social media, then you can see how he reacts and responds to other drummers that are just trying to play and improve. He's condescending and always slamming other musicians.

Apparently, it's been well-known for awhile now:


Amazing drummer though.

I posted this before to crickets but I don’t care, this guy is incredible.
He’s got chops, no doubt about it. No idea if he can groove though.

Interesting, this piece he chose, he switched roles with the rest of the band: he’s playing all interesting parts, while they’re stuck with the mindless monotonous repetition.
