Thankfully  we haven't lost too many so far this year.

But I will start it off.

RIP Can Drummer Jaki Liebezeit 

His beats are undeniable and probably the most underated drummer of all time.  Spent many a nights drumming along to Vitamin C.



RIP Miguel Ferrer

    Never realized until his death his family background connections.

  • Overend Watts, bassist for Mott the Hoople.  Another great name.

    I won't google the facts, but in my mind, I hope he actually died from a grenade whilst snorting coke from a bitches cleavage.

    It's true. Axelrod RIP. Damn.

    Two albums that changed my life and my outlook on music forever. Axelrod was one of the masters that married time, space, and layers with a swinging back beat. Hip hop before hip hop existed. RIP David Axelrod!

    Damn. A great voice.

  • What a week. Axelrod and Jarreau. Padilha thanks for introducing me to some Brazilian heat I was unaware of, albeit in sad circumstances.

    I remember watching this when I was a kid.  The Al Jarreau bit is some of the funniest shit that still sticks with me today.  RIP

    RIP Clyde Stubblefied
      

  • With Clyde, among the obvious Funky Drummer sample-inspiring-a-whole-genre stuff, and the killer recordings of Cold Sweat, Mother Popcorn etc., the thing that sticks out for me (as a shitty drummer who obsessed since age 12 over him, Bernard Purdie, etc.) was the 90s released live CD of James Brown live in Dallas 1968, "Say It Live And Loud".

    They play what seems like 130-160bpm for the whole goddamn concert. There's an unbelievable version of "There Was A Time" on this that will make you drop a enchirito out of your crackass, in the words of ap. The ghost notes on that still give me wrist pain and I don't even come close. Every non-ballad is played so furiously and with so much snare grace-note depth it damn near presages 90s jungle/dnb records. Put that concert on and listen to "I Got The Feeling". I am not a James Brown completist but I haven't heard anything like that before or since. That is an overheating band and some unbelievable drumming driving it all.

    In particular "There Was A Time" on that concert has driven my own feeble attempts at drumming way more than Funky Drummer or any of the famous Stubblefield recordings. The man is a personal hero for me and an enemy of my left wrist.

    Can we give the drummer some?

    Anyone got some good live clips?
