The fills during "Percodans Please" on the Army ep are pretty good.

That's right. I'm voting for my own made up at the last second on the fly fills.

Behind the Crooked Cross by Slayer. Listen to the chorus. Fast-as-fuck 16th-notes around the toms with some rad hi-hat stuff thrown in for fun.

When people talk about "Dave Lombardo fills," this is what they mean.

I love how up front the drums are. Let's have more of this, recording people....

Pretty much the whole live version of this song:

Fills aplenty here, but the one at 1:34 is especially sweet (also love that cymbal work at 1:45):

A perennial favorite of mine is Stewart Copeland's belligerent drum intro to "Message in a Bottle" on the second, 1983 disc of The Police — Live:


If it's excessive, it's also the only vital moment in a concert in which no one otherwise seems to be trying very hard; as such, I like to think it's Stewart venting the same frustration I feel when listening to the show.

    Bonham sure, whatevs. He's no Cribshitter.

    Yes. So good it seems impossible it wasn't already taken.


    Cribshitter is a Madison treasure. Their drummer quit while they performed on Wisconsin Public Television.

    Astoundingly funny band.
    Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

    In the someday, what's that sound.

    I can tell you the best fill that I ever played in the studio, and I stumbled dick-first into it.

    1:47 here:

    https://fiveeight.bandcamp.com/track/moms-best-boy

    Hadn't really written anything I liked, but we had limited time in the studio, so that was first-take, and I almost had them back up and track over it when the engineer said "Eh, come have a listen, first?"

    Ok, then. Guess we'll keep that.

    So many great fills, but I'm gonna cast my vote for something deceptively simple and catchy:

    Chuck Biscuits' fill at the end of the first chorus of "Mother". Bonus points for crashing on an open hi-hat and more extra credit for kicking up the tempo a couple clicks going into the next verse.

    Sounds great.

    Maybe it's me, but I like a lot of stuff that's just about going off the rails then manages to get back on track.

    This is one of them, by the incredible Gerhardt Fuchs:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF0ZxA130u4

    Will probably be chasing it the rest of my life, with varying levels of success.

    I had the great fortune to be at the two Austin shows in that clip, standing about a foot off-camera in that record store, and watching him do that was at once devastating and life-affirming. I also got to meet him out there through mutual friends, and he was kind and humble and funny. All of us who play or like the drums are poorer for the loss of him later that year.
