It doesn't. There were guys before Guy who could chop more proficiently than Guy. He can do better. He still has more room. Just because you have a few classy drum fills up your sleeve, that doesn't automatically make you a pro.

Does that mean Ringo Star is barely professional because so many drummers posses better technical skill?
Give me one performance where Ringo chopped proficiently.

Guy does a great job on Arrow, and in VdGG in general.
On "Arrow", "Killer", ... yes, but most of the time it sounds to me as if he is just there for rhythm back-up.


I'm not sure you understand what a "professional" is. It's not their technical ability, it's getting paid to do it for a living. As far as I'm aware, VdGG were professionals during the mid 70's.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

As a figure of speech professional and professionalism means doing things with confidence and skill, I fail to see what all the fuss is about. (and that's saying something coming from me)


Anyway, this lot are in Prog Related, (who knows why), so it's close enough:

Not prog at all, but Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" still blows me away. it's just ridiculous.

The Absent Lovers version of "Indiscipline" by King Crimson. Quite possibly Bill Bruford's shining moment with the band.

For a more minimalistic approach, "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath.
He looks at this world and wants it all... so he strikes, like Thunderball!

Wow, Kati.  You are spot-on with Bruford, Michael Giles, and Collins & Thompson.  Four of my all-time favorite drummers!

Clap Good call.  Whilst we're on the subject of Ian Paice, how about "You Fool No-one"?

I do feel compelled to add this most grabbing track called 5 YEARS by David Bowie, also starting with a drum intro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5rjNY8dMzc my ultimate favourite artist.

Devo - Satisfaction (maybe the only drum beat you can sing?)
the Cure - the Drowning Man (OK Tolhurst was a crap drummer but he sets the obsessive mood here perfectly)
the Cure - All Cats Are Grey (if he was such a crap drummer then why are...)
Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Vambo - (Ted McKenna is waay baaad y'all)
Jimmy Smith - Any Number Can Win (Just three tom beats from
Bobby Donaldson but they're just so perfect)
ELP - So Far to Fall (unjustly neglected track that would have improved Works Vol 1)
ELP - Tank - (Well I mean the intro to the swung 'Moog' portion to the end)
Deep Purple
- Fireball (never really rated Ian Paice but I love his playing on this)
Led Zeppelin - Rock and Roll (nuff said)
the Who - Slip Kid - (sounds simple but ask any drummer to play this Moon pattern and watch them flail badly)
the Fall - Hip Priest - (the mother of all 6/8 grooves - chosen rather bizarrely for the Silence of the Lambs soundtrack)
Bill Bruford's Earthworks - Bridge Of Inhibition (I think Bill exploits a drum synth thingy that triggers samples on the intro?)

the Monochrome Set - RSVP (JD Haney was clearly a big fan of both Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa)

there are loads more but old men forget etc

Awesome...how did I forgot Terry's psychotic opening to The Only Thing She Needs? And then he repeats that damn intro all over again in the middle. Too much...that fill is sick.

An excellent drum intro and beautiful song Green Eyed Dog by female fronted band Kula from Los Angeles: http://kula.bandcamp.com/track/green-eyed-dog

This is a live version:
