Ringo Starr's tom action on "Come Together." Any of Buddy Rich's insane solos. John Bonham's phat groove on "Kashmir." That fill in Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight." Dave Grohl's thunderous backbeat that drives "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Anderson .Paak's mad skills on "Am I Wrong." Think of your favorite artist and chances are there's a cool drum moment tucked somewhere in their catalog.
In honor of National Drumming Day on Nov. 15, the Recording Academy joins in saluting "the human rhythm machines" out there who lay down the backbeat to the soundtrack of our lives.
