Los Lobotomys. One band, so many great drummers :)

For those of you who know, well, you just know. For those who don't, imagine a band that's used Jeff Porcaro, Vinnie Colaiuta, Gregg Bissonette, Carlos Vega, & Simon Phillips. Actually, more of a collaboration with stalwarts Steve Lukather & David garfield than a band in the classic sense, but less of the semantics, let's get to the music! Any band with Jeff & Vinnie playing on stage at the same time has to be worth a listen - right?

Jeff on groove, Vinnie on solos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHHl7bg6e4Q

We cover this tune every now and then. It is so much fun to play.. but its a b@#*h. Its in 8 1/2, and yet grooves like crazy.

love it.


...
8 1/2 = novel (17/16?) You cover this Abe! Wow - tough call. I've never tried it, just admired from afar. Of course, now comes the inevitable request - sound clip/video?

Edit: Often missed - isn't the bass playing just sublime :)

Well, I count it as 1-2-………-7-8and, 1-2…

Its a great lick.We're not very good with recording, this band. Always relying on some random phone clip caught by a friend of the band, if were lucky.. terrible stuff.

Thanks Andy, I know it really well... :)

I actually got the studio CD of Steve Lukather "Candyman", it's a brilliant album featuring ferocious grooves and other wonders from Simon... funnily enough, this album has been re-released with the Los Lobotomys' tag.



I also got the one with Jeff, Carlos and Vinnie :)



I also got the DVD "Steve Lukather & Los Lobotomys in concert" (as the last link of your OP: Ohne Filter TV concert), wonderful gig.

Full concert here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3b6PirYBSdg




... as you know, I'm a big fan of both Toto and Mr Phillips, I'm bound to have those in my collection... :):)

Vinnie's solo is insane on this one, it is from this CD
Hi Alain, somehow, I just knew you'd be into this band :)

I was supposed to go see them once with Gregg, and I got a flat tire and missed the show.
:-(
Bummer!

Thanks Andy, I know it really well... :)
I know you're a fan Henri. Impressive collection you have there. I've always dreamed of being in a band like this, but then reality kicks in, I know I'd fall badly short on ability :(

Really put this up to spread such wonderful playing to a wider audience.
