Thread inspired by Steve Jordan in for Charlie Watts.
I can’t think of a more appropriate appointment and so it got me wondering….

If you had to go back in time (let’s say mid career) and replace:
Stewart Copeland
I think…Thomas Lang

Replace:
Omar Hakim with.. Manu Katche’

So anyway.
Everybody hopes their former Bon Scott is a new Brian Johnson
And their former DLR is a new Sammy Hagar.
Nobody wants to make the Garry Cherone decision.

What drummer subs would you make if you HAD to?

Tony Williams - Miles Davis Quintet
Gordy Knudtson - Steve Miller Band

Narada Michael Walden - Mahavishnu Orchestra
Mike Mangini - Dream Theater

PS: Wait! Is the question about actual replacements or prospective replacements?
