Thankyou and greetings Prog4ever.

Another one came to me - Scorpions "I'm Going Mad" - I would only class their first album "Lonesome Crow" as Prog. and perhaps a few songs from their 2nd album "Fly to the Rainbow".

there's mainly non-prog stuff that i could think of right now, but however i don't know if starting out with drum fills will count here, like this one:

I think King Crimson's Larks Tongues in Aspic, Part 1 certainly applies here:

Thank you, Drumstruck, for resurrecting this thread...(as a drummer myself, I like your ProgArchives avatar-name...)

Especially for a prog drum intro, I (also) vote for Alan White at the beginning of "Sound Chaser" (Yes-Relayer) [I did some previous "voting" on this thread back in February...]

Amazing intro, as well as whole song (and whole album... and to be honest, whole PFM ;)


Not prog, but this song is so good i had to post it here.

Good choice! Aynsley Dunbar has done some great work with a lot of people over the years. Not an intro, but I love his thunderous drumming on Keith West's On A Saturday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soYuUaFBJSE

^ the drum duet is amazing isn't it? I would say its a 'bridge' between 2 tracks though.

Does this count?
The drum duet before Los Endos or the mini-drum duet before Duke's Travels when played live.

Making a "hard drive cleaning", happened to find a somewhat nostalgic moment of my 80s' times, just when i began listening to prog: that such passionate final drums session performed by P.Collins (Chester Thompson didn't participate in that session) in the song Afterglow during the 'Seconds Out' show... But sorry, this thread is about Drums intros.
