This #BangTheDrum Sunday we're looking at you, Tommy Ramone! "He gave punk rock its pulse": so read the obituary headline from The New York Times, remarking on the 2014 death of one Tamás Erdélyi — better known by his stage name, Tommy Ramone. With his furiously metronomic eighth notes and tribal floor-tom bombs, he provided the speed-freak beat on the Ramones' groundbreaking first three albums, matching tempos with Johnny Ramone's buzzsaw guitar. He also made key songwriting contributions to the band's immortal canon, even penning "Blitzkrieg Bop," which Joey Ramone called a "call to arms for everyone to start their own bands." That would include artists from the Clash and Metallica to pretty much any band that has ever played Warped Tour; indeed, Erdélyi's signature thump still resonates as loudly as ever.

It's #BangTheDrum Sunday! Who are we looking at today? Sheila E., daughter of percussionist Pete Escovedo. A drum-kit prodigy playing at a young age with the likes of Marvin Gaye and Herbie Hancock, Sheila E. came into fame bringing her crisp, pristine, polyrhythmic style to Prince's post-Revolution band in the late 80s. Some say she helped shape the decade's rock, pop, and R&B. She also sang on her own solo hits like "The Glamorous Life," but it's her eminence as a still-in-demand drummer that's secured her musical legacy.

This #BangTheDrum Sunday, we're featuring Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. This neo-soul superproducer, polymathic author/raconteur, talk-show bandleader, Broadway musical consultant, celebrity superfan is a wickedly versatile drummer whose playing has consistently upended expectations. He currently jams on-the-regular on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where he accepts nightly challenges to add new pages to his ever-expanding encyclopedia of rhythm, blending seamlessly with the style of any guest who shows up!

America has no royalty. But we do have a chance to earn something more enduring. Born in Memphis and raised in Detroit, Aretha Franklin grew up performing gospel songs in her father’s congregation. For more than six decades since, every time she sang, we were all graced with a glimpse of the divine. Through her compositions and unmatched musicianship, Aretha helped define the American experience. In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade—our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. She helped us feel more connected to each other, more hopeful, more human. And sometimes she helped us just forget about everything else and dance.

Aretha may have passed on to a better place, but the gift of her music remains to inspire us all. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace. Michelle and I send our prayers and warmest sympathies to her family and all those moved by her song.

This #BangTheDrum Sunday, we're featuring Keith Moon! The self-described "greatest Keith Moon-type drummer in the world," abhorred the repetition of rote rock drumming – as well as the repetition in life in general. Moon, the inspiration for the Muppets character Animal, smashed drum kits and hotel rooms with a ferocity suggesting he was more performance artist than mere rock "sticksman."
