    Best Drum Intros in Rock

    Best Drum Intros in Rock

    Rock's been around long enough that we could make a list 100 songs long. I'll start:

    1. Yes - Hold On
    2. Black Sabbath - Iron Man
    3. Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

    #2
    Led Zeppelin - Rock and Roll
    Led Zeppelin - The Rover
    Rainbow - Stargazer

    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

              Genesis, “Tonight Tonight Tonight”
              Rush, “The Body Electric”
              and to echo pianozach, definitely “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” (Steve Gadd, percussionist). Great call.

                Dude, love that you chose The Body Electric. One of the best deep tracks from Rush.

                  I posted this one years ago. Perhaps not an iconic rock song, or let alone a rock song, but this guy is good/great. She’s not too bad, either. ;-)

                      Rush has a number of great drum intro songs, though Body Electric is a great call.

                      Animate, You Bet Your Life, One Little Victory, Territories, Mystic Rhythms, High Water, there's probably more.
                      I guess YYZ kinda qualifies too.

                          Hot For Teacher is a good one

                          And while Sound Chaser starts briefly with a Fender Rhodes, the drums are the centerpiece of the intro to that tune

                            It's short and sharp but have always loved Bruford's intro on SSOTS. So cool. Momentarily off kilter than locked right in.
