Good call. One of the several reasons why I love that song.

Also ... :

VdGG - "Arrow" (come on ... that is some tight semi-professional drumming)
Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin - "Vital Transformations"

... Ermm ... I might think of more.

Yeah, that's a righteous example.

A slightly more modern example I like is the intro to Judas Priest's title song from Painkiller. I'm not exactly a JP "fan," but they have some great songs, like "Desert Plains" and "Hellion/Electric Eye."

I still don't understand how that changes his level of professionalism. 

Does that mean Ringo Star is barely professional because so many drummers posses better technical skill? 

Guy does a great job on Arrow, and in VdGG in general. He's a professional.

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.

Give me one performance where Ringo chopped proficiently.

On "Arrow", "Killer", ... yes, but most of the time it sounds to me as if he is just there for rhythm back-up.

There's more to a drummer than playing sophisticated fills. Fills don't make a "professional" drummer. That's what you're saying in statement 1 correct? Good, i agree. 

Statement 2: Strawberry Fields Forever is a fantastic Ringo song. Same with Good Morning Good Morning. 

Statement 3. guy is a great drummer, and isn't limited to those songs. Honestly i think most of his performances are adequate and are both interesting and stable. Even so, even if we has just a metronome for VdGG's time signatures - he's still a professional. Session musicians are paid to do the same, and it's still his job and performs his role well.

1) What do you mean by "professional" in quotes?
2) First, you say "Fills don't make a 'professional' drummer", then you agree. I'm confused.

 QUOTE=Horizons Statement 2: Strawberry Fields Forever is a fantastic Ringo song. Same with Good Morning Good Morning. /QUOTE

Fantastic songs, yes, but on the strengths of composition. I don't know what Ringo has to do with it, though.

I agreed because you said the same thing. I still am trying to avoid your usage of professional. Only thing we disagree on it seems is you think a drummer's job is to w**k off during complicated fills.

An example of an excellent drummer, doing an excellent percussion performance without using complicated fills. 

Edit: w**k is censored? Isn't there an age limit anyway?

I thought there was only one legit usage of the word (the one that ostensibly the two of us agreed on beforehand). If you can't play proficiently, you are not at the pro level, right?
Originally posted by Horizons

I said nothing of the kind, nor did I imply it. If you are able to come up with more ideas on spot for the same song, isn't that something that only a pro can do?

Pertaining to the topic..

[TUBE]?v=Ma27diEPqB0[/TUBE]

Love Dave's drumming. He changes it up here and there live, making it better a lot of times - but this is the great original. 

Also.. cheating a bit.

Well, it's not too complicated - and that's the appeal of it. The in-the-pocket groove. It's like the famed Perdie Shuffle, the feeling of it is just sublime. Same case here, the production especially on the album makes the drums and particularly this rhythm sound even better. 

Additionally, i'd like to say that it isn't as easy as you think. A beginner drummer surely won't nail the song. Again, i'm also incorporating the feel and groove of it. The fact he makes it sound seamless is something that the rhythm calls for.

I guess to spot the little intricacies of the drum part I'd have to take a stab at it myself (but I don't have a kit), but I don't hear those little intricacies either.

Oh, well. ... Sucks for me.

I think that giving drumming a try would help the appreciation of the subtleties of the instrument. I guss it's also just a matter of varying taste of what we expect to hear and what we like to enjoy from a drummer. As a member of the Math-Rock Team as well as being a percussionist for 5 years I can assure you that i absolutely love hearing impressive chops and creative rhythms. I just also love hearing simplicity sometimes.

yep me too although it was an 'edit' from the original version which had a heavy keyboard/synth intro

Dance with the Devil by Cozy Powell has a great intro (later lifted by Boney M for Rasputin!), though I suppose the whole track is basically a drums showcase.

I have been in a lot of bands that have attempted to play "Get Back" - I've yet to find a drummer who could play it in the same way as Ringo - it sounds simple but getting the right feel to it is deceptively difficult. 

I will just quote a well-known quite reasonable prog drummer - Mr Phil Collins.

"Phil Collins, who was himself influenced by Starr, said; “Ringo is vastly underrated. The drum fills on the song "A Day in the Life" are very complex things. You could take a great drummer today and say, 'I want it like that.' He wouldn't know what to do.”

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.

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

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

I like the ELP , Deep Purple and The Who selections very much ( don't know most of the others tbh).

Another track on Works Volume Two worth mentioning has a classic Carl Palmer 'marching band' intro - Close But Not Touching.

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.

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

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

Not sure if these have been mentioned before :
Led Zep - 'When The Leevee Breaks'. Bonham and a solid groove !!
Jefferson Starship - 'Freedom At Point Zero'. Aynsley Dunbar kicks serious ass on this one.

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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soYuUaFBJSE" rel="nofollow - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soYuUaFBJSE

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...]

That Budgie song someone mentioned earlier... notable for being not just a drum solo intro, but a flanged drum solo! Everything about that LP is just so gloriously early-1970s.

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:

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".
