Carter Beauford

I read something that I thought was complete trash in another thread, basically along the lines of Carter Beauford not being as good as he used to be on the drums. I for one have always thought he has consistently gotten better through the years. What are your thoughts on this?

    Re: Carter Beauford

    Yah I read that too...its crazy. He's getting better and better, and if you think his sound is getting worse, then I think it's more of a reflection of the band changing then Carter. He's a beast, and that won't change.

    Just as talented as ever. That being said, I think he's in alot more pain than he used to be, so he avoids some of the full kit rolls and has changed his style ever so slightly to compensate.

    There's no arguing that Carter is the man though.

    Re: Carter Beauford

    He's one of the best drummers in the world. Saying that he's slightly less or more god-like now than he was back in the day is kind of irrelevant. He's damn good either way.

    I respect just about every opinion on this site, but the one I will laugh at 100% of the time is when people say Carter isn't as good as he used to be.

    How does that make any sense at all? One person had an opinion different than yours about Carter, so that means the entire antsmarching fanbase will produce an unbiased result in this thread and it's poll? What?

    i dont agree with the guy, but if he has alot of background with the instrument and knows his stuff, i dont think it warrents all you people talking down on him like hes trash or something.

    Where did I say I was forced to post in here? You make absolutely 0 sense.

    I'm laughing because this website is the last place on the planet to get an unbiased opinion of Carter.

    I don't think his current playing compliments the "DMB sound" as much as he used to. I love his 2000 playing.

    I think BWGGK might be Carter's best album so... I'd say he's better now.

    THAT is what I'm talking about. This place is not somewhere to get an unbiased opinion. At all. The guy you are referring to actually made some decent points and definitely doesn't deserve any bashing. The majority of this place does just ballwash the band and everything they do, including Carter.

    Dude seriously. The question was not whether or not Carter is a good drummer. The question was whether or not he is as good now as he was in the bands earlier years. People have no problem saying Dave was better in the 90s so why would it be any different when talking about Carter?

    I feel like from 05-07 he went down a little but from 08 until now he's become better than ever. I can't really think of any other time that he's played as inspired/incredible/technical/passionate/insane than now.

    Carter is just as good now as he's always been. He's a great drummer. Some people are mistaken, though... he's not "god-like". He's just a great drummer.

    Seriously.

    It's rare that I try to make serious arguments in DMBc anymore. Sometimes I forget how pointless it is, then I enter threads like this and remember why I don't.

    yeah, i agree with zach and chris. you really wont find an unbiased opinion here. for most, carter is the best drummer of all time out of nothing more than blind faith.
