Funky Drummer 40th Anniversary!

Drifter in the Dark

Today is actually a very important day in musical history. Forty years ago today, James Br own and his band went into King Records studios in Cincinnati, Ohio to record the song "Funky Drummer," featuring the inimitable Clyde Stubblefield on drums. The drum break that he played on that song remains one of the most-sampled in the world. Everyone from Madonna to Public Enemy to Sublime has gotten their hands on it!
So today, take a cue from JB himself and "Give the drummer some!" Play it loud and play it proud!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7T4v2l-PIg
