    My favorite drummer and my favorite character among musicians. One gets the impression that Stewart has rarely been gnawed by self-doubt.

    What a Legend

    This fellow, Charlie Watts, and John Densmore, are among my favourites! How entertaining is Stuart.

    If Wired hosted Copeland, are we going to have the opportunity to ask Andy Summers any music related questions?

    As a side note; you get definity feel the pocket in Be My Girl (the 1979 live in Boston Version); the lead in with Summer’s Guitar playing and Copeland jumping in with the drums is stellar

    Makes me endlessly happy to see Stewart getting some attention and to hear him say such nice things about Taylor Hawkins and Joey Jordison, knowing that they both cited him as a major influence to their playing

  19. StoriesofmyStrife

    November 20, 2023 at 7:40 pm

    As a long-time fan of the ‘Wired _____ Support’ videos and a longer-time drummer, I fully endorse this episode and all of its content.

    He is right though!!!

  21. Shamsulazhar

    November 20, 2023 at 7:47 pm

    Yep, he is the reason why The Police’s songs are difficult to play

    So cool 🎉. 👍🤪🏳️‍🌈

  23. Patrick Williamson

    November 20, 2023 at 7:50 pm

    I’d say that the only reason that buddy rich song is difficult is because it’s impossible to replicate his style. Personally I don’t think he’s nearly as good as many session drummers today or was even the best drummers and would arguably say there are more difficult songs to play. Terry Bozzio – The Black Page IMO is way more difficult and solely a drum piece too instead of some flashy BS that Buddy did. Sorry Stewart, you’re a great drummer but you have a bad take on this one and need to stop living in the past

  29. John Glover

    November 21, 2023 at 6:25 pm

    Stewart is not just a legend, he’s also crazily entertaining to listen to & watch! He’s a loveable character, almost a stand up comic, without even trying to be.
    Like The Beatles without Ringo, The Police would be nearly nothing without Stewart.

    Loved this video! Want *MORE* 😇

  30. Thomas J

    November 21, 2023 at 6:26 pm

    Stewart Copeland’s side hustle: Berating his hoyty-toyty, bass playing singer with tongue planted firmly in-cheek and a smile sincere enough to reassure everyone he’d lay down in traffic to protect him. I love this band so much.

  31. Rogifan

    November 21, 2023 at 6:27 pm

    Did he really say Taylor Hawkins, Charlie Watts and Ringo Starr had no chops?

  32. tripencrypt

    Thanks Stewart! Say hello to Andy and Gordo for me, lol.

  33. Luiz Ebert

    Did Sting really called him? That’s my question 😂

  34. Deft Esoterica

    November 21, 2023 at 6:47 pm

    I am so impressed with Stewart. I play avante-garde jazz-type drums and really never got to know his drums BUT this guy clearly knows what’s up. We are now bros.

  35. k

    November 21, 2023 at 6:50 pm

    Stewart’s awesome… the police are awesome… a shame they couldn’t stay together longer… the power of the policy’s power trio punk, reggae, jazz is awesome!

  36. Absolute Bangers

    November 21, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    I could listen to Stewart talk about drums all day, he is one of my all time favourite drummers. I’m also glad he spoke about the beast behind the kit that was Joey Jordison, one of the first people to get me interested in metal music!

  37. Sky

    November 21, 2023 at 6:53 pm

    Stewart, you’re my favorite old man in the world! I am so so fortunate to have hear your music since i was young. You’re such an inspiration to me. Thank you for existing.

  38. Harry Superorganism

    November 21, 2023 at 7:09 pm

    “A lot of drummers I really like that aren’t famous names”…names Ringo Starr, Taylor Hawkins and Charlie Watts 🤔🤔

  39. USMC13

    November 21, 2023 at 7:14 pm

    After I had been playing for a while I realized I was able to hear the drummer easily in music I was listening to.

  40. Freaksnake

    Stewart. It’s time to come back. Get a drum channel or something just be a something again.

    Oh my gosh, what an amazing teacher! But I didn’t realize that this was for a Junior High class, which makes it even more priceless 🙂 thanks Stewart!!!

    Copeland looks like he’s having the time of his life, all the time.

  45. Guy Incogneto

    November 21, 2023 at 7:47 pm

    Stewart and Adam Savage should do a Mythbusters Drumming edition. Even Stewarts speech mannerisms are SO close to Savages, it would be quite entertaining.

  46. astralpx

    Had no idea he is so authentic, and genuine, love it.

  47. djn48

    Best odd time signatures? Anything played by Danny Carey. That dude can put groove into anything, no matter what time signature it’s in.

    My absolute favorite drummer out there. There needs to be more content of him and more stories to tell. One of the most talented and fun people I’ve ever seen!

  51. Carlos Nunez

    November 22, 2023 at 11:43 pm

    On top of being one of the best drummers I’ve ever heard, he is just soooooo charismatic !

  52. Robert Cole

    November 22, 2023 at 11:48 pm

    don’t stop believing is a perfect example. the chorus is 8bpm faster than the verses. and it needs to be or it would feel wrong. clicks have their place, and they also have places where they don’t belong.

  53. Kenneth Chapman

    November 23, 2023 at 1:14 am

    The drummer of my favorite rock band of all time. Couldn’t click fast enough! Personally the #10 rank on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 best drummers is low in my opinion.

  54. IvyLeather

    November 23, 2023 at 2:36 am

    Also famous for composing the soundtrack for Spyro the Dragon 1 – 3.

  58. Adrian Trusca

    Great satanic brutal death metal drummer. His blast beats are intense. Go together well with the singer’s growls.

    When Copeland suddenly gave Joey Jordison props, my heart skipped a beat, and began to tear up. RIP Joey.

  61. Common Man

    November 23, 2023 at 9:12 am

    As I said before, Stewart can hit the snare harder with traditional grip than most drummers can hit with a match grip. It is mind blowing the power created by him that way. Just an observation.

  62. richard bell

    November 23, 2023 at 9:47 am

    As soon as someone criticises a musician for not being ostentatious enough, I know they’re a gobsh¡†e.

  64. Ishmam Ahmed

    November 23, 2023 at 11:42 am

    What a guy for showing respect to newer generations instead of pointing some random sh*t as an excuse. Average newer generation of musicians have both feel and technique leagues above average musicians 20-30 years ago. Of course I will never dispute having some insanely good older musicians like Steve himself who you just can’t compare newer musicians with

  82. Artur X

    November 24, 2023 at 8:11 am

    I stopped watching this video when the drummer said f— and sh–. Swearing is kind of lame. However, the drummer is super professional, super witty and super eloquent – a great musician and a brilliant conversationalist.

    Growing up i loved the police, always had headphones on playing along to them on drums, got into a band with a guitarist who was on same page, nobody I knew thought copeland was very good, they weren’t police fans, seems nowadays, decades later lots of people now get it.

    I’d argue the best version of “Love Me Do” is the tambourine version, because it showed what Ringo could do with such a limitation.

    My favourite drummer of all time. His blending of Jazz, Reggae and syncopated rhythms into rock helped to make the Police one of the most unique and undeniably musically exquisite rock bands ever. He was the glue for Andy Summers and Sting.

    Stewart Copeland is one of the coolest, smartest and most fun to listen to musicians on the planet! He is just fantastic! The way he makes, lives and explains music is just the best! His style and his sense of humour are world class! Stewart is a super star – but still friendly and not arrogant! A rare species!

    Steve Pruitt (UNT master jazz) saith unto me. ‘Ive seen many drummers hold sticks in all sortsa ways, so long as the strokes and music is good, no one should care”… Ringo was a badass because.. he is oringally a left side player, but due to optics, the producers (TV mainly), said he had to play ‘normal’. (She loves you) intro, is a left fill -on a right kit. Try it! Stewart Copeland is a giant because he infused something no one else did back then. Reggae and punk!

    I saw a vid.with Buddy Rich. He said the traditional grip is the correct way to hold the stiicks. The match grip is for timponies,But it depends on the individual.
    Charlie Watts always used the traditional grip, but then again he was into jazz.

    i am so glad he articulated how my brain works with music. Ive never had a lesson a day in my life, i couldnt tell you what any “notes” are, but ive been playing drums and guitar for 20-25 years. Since i was a small child i had drum sticks in my hand. I always struggle to explain to people how my brain goes about learning and “feeling” what i should be doing. You really DO just kinda feel it. Now in my 30s I know enough to tell you what a bar is, an 8th and 16th note, but i could never look at a sheet and go OH ok so i have to do this this and that, i listen and just do what feels right for the song, or if im learning a song i listen to it a million times over and just do my best to emulate whats being done and in doing that more often than not i hear something i hadnt noticed and wind up learning new things simply just by actively listening. To hear one of the best ever sort of articulate that is awesome

    Mother – written and sung by Andy Summers – has an odd time signature (it’s in 7). Fitting, I guess, because it’s an odd song – really out there weird.

  148. SucSynched

    November 26, 2023 at 6:38 pm

    the rhythmic patterns you hear in police records and stewart’s film scores are so intricate and unique he’s unsure at times how to replicate them. the drummer’s drummer for all time.

    How does one submit a question? Be interested if you endorse Tama, and why (if youre allowed to say). Maybe some reviews of other manufacturers, or to know what you played in the studio on Police recordings. Even just a focus on what snare you used on Spirits, and how you tuned it, snare tension, etc.

    • @hdestotallyunoriginalgamin3555

      November 28, 2023 at 8:36 pm

      I remember being VERY disappointed that he didn’t stay on the kit during the Taylor Hawkins gig when Lee and Lifeson came on right after him. Could have been a universe shattering development, right there.

    @6:22 “You learn how to play a song and it lasts forever.” Not always. Nick Mason of Pink Floyd said after years of not playing drums he had to practically relearn how to play them on their songs when they began touring again. In his book he said he was ashamed at how he had lost his ability to do his main occupation in life.

  206. @jimo3173

    November 28, 2023 at 11:40 pm

    The only thing I disagree with that he said was that drummers today pick up where older drummers left off. If anything, most drummers today couldn’t carry the shoes of most of the drummers in Buddy Rich’s day. Drumming has been going backwards for years, not getting better. That doesn’t mean there’s no drummers today who are any good, but trying to compare Joey Jordison who was good to say Buddy Rich who was incredible would be like comparing a Geo Metro to a Lamborghini Diablo.

  214. @ddsdss256

    November 29, 2023 at 10:45 am

    Love his playing and attitude–very in sync with my own (there are artistic differences but “eff it–do whatever” generally works a lot better than “trying” to play–per Yoda, “do or do not–there is no try”). Also, I happen to love odd times–especially 7.
