Try "6:00" (six o'clock) by Dream Theater. Short drum intro, but it gets me pumped.

Didn't they just steal that from the Beastie Boys "Rhymin' and Stealin'"? Frigging samplers......

KIDDING OF COURSE!

The drum intro to GN'R's "You Could Be Mine" on Use Your Illusion II is pretty cool.

I never really liked Slayer since the 80's, but damn, that track is good enough to buy the CD for. Paul Bostaph is an excellent drummer.

She Loves You by The Beatles. IIRC, that was possibly the first R & R record to ever use a drum intro. Very short yes, but still cool.

Adobe beat me to it! I prefer the James Horner version from the Swing Kids soundtrack. (And don't forget Royal Crown Revue - Barflies At The Beach.) I'm 24. I listen to Swing Street daily on Sirius Satellite Radio. And yes, I'm the only person my age I know with an appreciation for this kind of music.

The roots for everything from 50s rock, 60s reggae, and even modern punk can all be heard in swing music. It's amazing.

Runners up for drum intro...

U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday
Blur - Song 2

too bad i never got a chance to see Krupa live during his heyday.

i've seen Buddy probably 7 or 8 times and got to meet him once. the MASTER.

and man what a great BAND he had. i've seen some great bands - Maynard's, Kenton's, Woody Herman, but Buddy had the best. a few guys i went to music school with at YSU played with his band back in the early to mid 80's before Buddy died.

here's a great site for drummers. you can see some great videos of a lot of great drummers:

It's funny. They all played with him because he had a great band and it was a big resume builder. It certainly wasn't for his personality. He treated his band like *****! There's a particularly famous recording of him REAMING out his band on the bus. Fantastic band and player, but I'm sure glad I never had him as a boss.

Actually no, they were both released in 1963. SLY in August of '63. I don't recall the release month of WO. But it would be a safe bet that neither band had heard of the other when they were recording these songs.

i stand corrected. you are right. wipe out was released in july of 63 and she loves you was actually recorded on july 1 and released in the UK in august.

so basically wipe out did precede she loves you by about a month in regards to release dates.

Trumpet -- in this month's issue of Modern Drummer there is an interview with a guy who played bass with Buddy for a while. he talks all about the rants and raves he had to go through on the bus and in the dressing rooms.

he mentions in particular one gig in Youngstown OH. i was probably at that show as i saw Buddy everytime he came to Y-Town.

brutal!! ;f ;f
