Pat Mastelotto as a drummer. Wut's, uh, the deal?

Postby Ironclaw on Sat Aug 09, 2014 1:25 pm

Disclaimer:

I like each and every incarnation of King Crimson. But my fanatical worship is reserved only for the Original Lineup and the Bruford/Cross/Fripp/(Muir)/Wetton lineup.

Now, to the point: As much as I do, in fact, enjoy the "2ble-3o" and the "Construction of Power" lineups, I've never really gotten into Pat Mastelotto's drumming all that much. It's not that I think it isn't good. It's just that I have never noticed anything about it to really catch my attention. In fact of all the skin-beaters to ever wear the Crimson, Pat Mastelotto is the least interesting of them all for me. Actually, there are a couple of things about him that I really like a lot: He is from California (me too) and he liked and saw the B/C/F/W lineup as a young man and wrote about seeing them in San Francisco for "The Road to Red" box set booklet. Now that was really interesting to me!

So, what exactly do folks like about Pat Mastelotto's drumming? I'd like to know because I want to hear what you guys hear in it, too.

He doesn't force himself into the music. He supports it.

I'd say he's essential to the later KC music. If you listen to the ProjeKcts he was in, he provides far more than just beats. His loops and textures are a big part of the musical structure. He is definitely a fully contributing member of the band.

I've been very satisfied with all the drummers that have graced KC. Pat is the only one I have seen live, and He amazed Me, and I like His personality and dedication on some very difficult music.

Pat the meter never over plays and his beats are groovy. Love him you'll never hear him playing over the band.
