Sure, there are great theatrical drummers in the world. The late, great Keith Moon for one. Budgie from Siouxsie and the Banshees or Adrian Young from No Doubt are certainly up there in terms of stage presence and watchability. But THE man, the king of all that is awesome in percussion, is a guy named Steve Moore from a West Virginia cover band called Rick K and the Allnighters. Yes, he's dressed in what looks like one of The Beautiful Creatures' old Columbia jackets, and yes, he's in a classic-rock cover band. Even with those handicaps Moore stands head and shoulders above all other pretenders to the throne. Check out this video of the band playing our own ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man." At first, it's nothing special, but just give it a few seconds and we DARE you not to experience the joy and wonder of Steve Moore.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
