If I did it wrong, just delete this thread. I want to discuss this drummer from James Gang.

I love James Gang. Played to death on the radio in my native Cleveland when I was growing up, and we even planned to see them at the Beacon Theater in NYC as a part of my bachelor party last year (unfortunately, that component of the party ended up not happening).
I always thought Fox nailed a really good funky/hippie/acid rock groove.

I second that motion. I still think the James Gang are incredible and so is Jim Fox. He's the only other drummer in the early Seventies,other than Bobby Colomby and Bobby Caldwell,(of Captain Beyond,) who could do the "Bonham Triplets" as fast as Bonham himself. Just check out the drum solo on the live version of "Lost Woman;" half of it is being done with his bass drum foot.I don't think that there is anyone who sounds like him,a very unique talent...

IN the video, Jim Fox hits some of his drums by making a circular whipping motion as if he was cooking something. It's obvious that he was cooking awesome but do you guys think there's any reason why he does it?

I always liked Jim Fox's playing very underated drummer IMO.always liked "Walk Away",
"Funk #49" they were a really cool 3-piece group.
