A few of my favourite YouTube drum videos

Here are a few of my favourite YouTube Drum videos. Some of them show deep grooves, others go for showmanship and ridiculous speed. Whatever you’re into, hope you enjoy them.

Above, Questlove lays it down with The Roots on Later With Jools Holland, 1999. Please note this is a live performance! No backing tracks, drum machines. Real people, real instruments, real music.

The incomparable Dennis Chambers with the Buddy Rich Band at the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert, 1989. You want speed? You got it! This blew my mind when I was about 13…

Bill Withers – Use Me, featuring surely the coolest guy ever, Mr James Gadson, on drums.
