Hi, I've been lurking for awhile. Ian Thomas is fantastic! Danny Cummings was a good, solid drummer but not really good enough for an artist of MK's stature. Danny's a wonderful percussionist and average kit player IMHO.

Just looking back through a few threads on  Danny Cummings

Oh how a laughed at this one ...

Funny how people see Jim's playing as plinky plonky when the first memory of his playing I have is the middle section in sultans in 1996 where he played marvellous jazzy things akin to little stories inside the song. These passages were different at every date. Listen to Caen recording if you caen.  ;D
When he was given that space in marbletown in 2015 where he just went where his mind told him to, his playing was heavenly at times.
And he sure can boogie like hell!  How he can keep that insane rhythm at times while playing a thousand notes is beyond me.


As for the subject of Ian vs Danny, I couldn't tell, I loved Chad  ;)

Any drummer who has played with Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour, Eric Clapton and Mike Oldfield has to be good. ;)

There are a lot of videos of the Strat Pack concert in youtube where you can see how good drummer is Ian Thomas.

Also some videos from Steve Winwood and Clapton... Amazing.
same goes for his performance with David Gilmour on the Fender thing.
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....

I welcome the return of plinky plonk Jim, Matts was too cheesy for me as I prefer a bit of boogy woogy Jools Holland style of playing. Danny seemed like a nice chap and its a shame he's not around MK anymore. I even got to talk to him at a very early Blues Club gig years ago. Although I cant remember the conversation as the bloody barman sold me too many beers.
the reason i hate barmen
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....
