Best New Drummer: Benny Greb

Since coming to the fore with an opening spot at Drummer Live 2005, Benny Greb has been hot property. He's an amazing technician, a fantastic showman, and a very musical player. He's a nice guy to boot too!

The release of his Grebfruit album (on which he plays most of the instruments himself!!) saw the move into the mainstream of drummer's consciousness, and deservedly so. More Greb please!!

Best Recorded Performance: Benny Greb - Grebfruit

Well, this is no great surprise. It's a fantastic album available signed from Benny himself and one with creative grooves, blistering technique and some fantastic music. As mentioned above he plays virtually everything himself meaning he's no slouch in other departments, besides drumming. Some people get all the talent eh??

Best DVD: Thomas Lang - Creative Control

After Thomas' new DVD gets round, I'll bet that will take the award next year, but until then, it'll have to be this beast for the third consecutive year. This DVD has outsold all other educational DVD's on the market - drumming or not. What else has to be said that hasn't already been said about this masterwork? I don't know why I'm bothering, you probably own it anyway.
