The most under rated musicians out today.


Recommended Posts

So who do you think are the most under rated musicians today?

Here's my list:

  1. Dave Matthews
  2. Carter Beauford
  3. Dave Grohl
  4. Taylor Hawkins
  5. John Paul Jones (kind of. Mostly because he doesnt get as much attention.)
  6. Roger Taylor

Dave is an amazing song writer and i think alot of people miss it.

Carter's drumming is in the top 5 of the last 15 years. He's really amazing. His timing and rhythm are impeccable.

Dave Grohl, great songwriter, can play about 4 or 5 different instruments(drums, guitar, bass, piano etc).

Roger Taylor is a real good drummer. Most people only know Queen for Freddie and Brian but the other two are real solid.

Taylor Hawkins rocks out like no one else. His drumming is the perfect fit for how the Foo Fighters play

Well, I will definitely agree that Carter is a fantastic drummer, but...he's not exactly underrated...at least amongst drummers. Also, Dave Grohl isn't underrated.

My List

1. Steven Drozd

2. Greg Saunier

3. Matt Cameron

4. Beth Gibbons

Steven Drozd plays drums, guitar, bass, and sings, he did all off the first three on the latest Flaming Lips record "At War With The Mystics" the guy is fucking incredible.

Greg Saunier is a FUCKING INSANE drummer. Go see Deerhoof live.

Matt Cameron is a very underrated drummer, he has a perfect balance between self indulgent over playing and simple 1234 rock drumming .

Beth Gibbons has an insane singing voice, totally underrated.

Richard Thompson

Most zep fans would barely know him being the former lead guitarist of Fairport Convention (aka that Sandy Denny band).

I got converted to him because his solo acoustic stuff kicks Bob Dylans ass. The amazing thing is that he isnt a geezer who had his prime and is living of his reputation. He's putting out stuff now that will be considered classics, and his playing still improves.

Fairport Convention tune:

I've never considered Dave Matthews or any of his band members to be underrated. Even though I'm not a fan I think they're excellent musicians and other musicians are constantly praising their superb musicianship. Definitely not underrated.

Certainly noy underated, but probably not that well known.

Lester Butler & The Red Devils.

LA's finest, but sadly long gone due to the untimely and tragic demise of singer/harp strangler Lester.

It's straight forward Chicago style Blues, with a JL Hooker vibe and a definate West Coast twist.

In a general media sense - Led Zeppelin up until the announcement of the O2 concert. It's been interesting to see bland media-types who can't see beyond the likes of Madonna, Rod Stewart, Elton John, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones getting to grips with just how much Led Zeppelin mean to so many people. The publicity they gained over the last couple of months - many times more TV attention in this period than than I can remember seeing in my entire 30 years of being a fan - seems finally to have put into perspective their musical significance and hopefully kicked into the dust that erroneous 'heavy metal' tag.

In terms of general public appreciation Rush is probably about the biggest underated act.

Another HUGELY underated act is Thunder - no doubt the name has not been the best welcome mat to what is a truly great band and one that is surprisingly unique today.
