Best Rock Drummers
« see full list
Simply the best... Fast beats, so passionate, very energetic, awesome accuracy, able to turns old songs to new revised beats without affecting the song quality; in fact refreshing and improvising the old songs and making it more to his own style (and he always do that when performing old songs at live concerts, which would be songs that previously drummed by L'Arc~en~Ciel previous drummer Yatsunori Sakurazawa) unique style, all in all a very talented drummer but yet very humble and down-to-earth personalities that attract fans attention to him. His songs composition (fact: he is also a song writer and composer, apart from served as vocalist/founder of Acid Android, programmer and a bassist to P'unk~en~Ciel, L'Arc~en~Ciel alter ego) were always a little out-of-the-ordinary but they're unique and can be pleasant to his-kind-of listeners (and his/the band fans)(New World was one of his work that sound a bit pop-ish, his solo works like 13ayream and Code were industrial, experimental and alternatives rock but it worth to listen to, and his new song for L'Arc~en~Ciel upcoming new album rumoured to be Butterfly, called Shade of seasons are seem to be worth to look forward for in the album). Try listens to L'arc~en~Ciel songs that vary in different genres(from rock to ballad and a dash of techno) and listen to their old songs (from Sakura's works), compares it with the same song that played live by him and listen to the differences (but both of them are very talented people with two different styles, hence resulting to the two different sounds) then you will know this guy.
He was a drummer of japanese bands ZI:KILL and DIE IN CRIES (KYO of D'ERLANGER's own band). They disbanded in 1998. tetsu had a hard time meeting yukihiro due to yukihiro had no mobile phone at that time. He replaced sakura (because of heroin possession) then become the drummer. He has a unique style of hitting the drums and he is a very fast drummer but he also created lots of drumming in slow songs. He is also a programmer.
the way he played the drums are very different from the others. Very fast, very accurate, very strong, and very typical. Thank god you have created Awaji Yukihiro as a new reference for drummers of the world. check the new single (GOOD LUCK MY WAY) 2011
I went for L'Arc~en~Ciel World Tour at Singapore last night. During his solo, it was just amazing! His powerful play and the fact that he looked so much in fun attracted me so much! It's like cool+cute+awesome+amazing+power+etc! He can play fast then slow down then fast again and he doesn't look tired! HE'S AWESOME! BEST EVER!
He is very very cool style Drummer and he is very very good stamina, I LOVE YUKIHIROO
first time I saw his playing, I felt like I watching a God of drummers. he is so awesome, so amazing, and incredible! oh God
He's such an amazing drummer, the drum sections in some of the new songs are absolutely fantastic. He's always so quiet and hidden behind his drums that I'd swear that everyone ignores him but he's an amazing drummer. Anytime I see him play, it's so fantastic and amazing.
Yukkie... The best Drummer I ever know...
He make me want to be a great drummer just like him.
His drumming really make my heart beat faster... There is no other drummer like him.
Yukihiro Awaji - The best Drummer ever.
he is faster and better than Kai of Gazette, Gazette are the newer bands of japanese visula kei and yukihiro played in numerous bands like ZI:KILL, DIE IN CRIES and of course L'Arc~en~Ciel.
He is the best drummer ever and he always play with his plain face and I always scream when I see him smile because he rarely smile on the stage... LOVE YOU YUKIHIRO-SAN ^^ L'Arc~en~Ciel must proud to have you
Yukihiro just awesome when he played drum in "Ready Steady Go! ". I love him when he played the drum. Although he didn't speak anything in L'Arc en Ciel world tour, I still adore him
He can make song. His music is cool! And his voice is very very Rock!
Please listen his performance. For example, "rink it down".
This song is so nice.
a very skillful drummer. his power, rhythm and melody make his drumming stand out and sounds very different from other most typical drummers.
YUKII for ever he is he is an incredible drummer!, with impressive skill and he is so incredible too! He is so amazing in his solos and always he is the best! YUKHIRO!
Good stamina, full talented drummer, unique beat, ear catching, he look so awesome on live concert with fully drum set, just like he hit them all..
The best drummer in the world, he has an unique style for drumming,
i'm disagree when they say that shinya is better than yukihiro, shinya's drum very monotone
He's a great mixture
He's HOT and he's COOL
He got tons of stamina. He's very amazing, he plays fast beats even slow beats, he can!
He puts everything when performing... When Yukihiro plays, you can never say that the song was dull
Yukihiro's beats are hard to mimic creating one of the factors why l'arc en ciel's music is unique
i dont know where he got that much energy from a skinny body like that. and his speed is just awesome!!
yukihiro is the best, simply, because he can always surprise you with his passion when he is playing
I like the style Yuki, BEST DRUMMER J-ROCK in The World! Very energetic and powerful punch.. Good to hear it, because I'm Cielers
he's the best one, has a lot of qualities, some of them: strenght and speed. he's unique *o*
Don't look at his tinny body, because he has monstrous stamina and God-light speed of drummer inside of it..
He really shows dedication to L'Arc, you can see in his determined face when he plays
