Ricky Wellman
This guy is awesome, pity he isn't portrayed on Drummerworld (yet?)!

Re: Ricky Wellman?
Great drummer. I rarely hear him mentioned these days. Thanks for bringing his name to the attention of others.

Re: Ricky Wellman
I just found out Toss Panos (whom I miss on Drummerworld too) is in the so-called wishlist. Ricky Wellman isn't, though.
What's the wishlist all about? Does it say that a certain amount of folks want a certain drummer to be included in the drummerworld encyclopedia? Just curious...

Re: Ricky Wellman
Where is this guy? Man, he is a phenomenal drummer. I've never seen anyone unload more timely than this fellow. Where is he?!

Re: Ricky Wellman
I emailed directly about this very issue a number of years back and got no response.

Wellman is one of the greatest groove players in history, you only have to listen to his work with Miles to appreciate this.

He was with Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers before joining Miles, he's essentially the godfather of the original Go Go groove, and the guy Miles replaced Al Foster with.

Check out the following:

Miles 1 intense driving groove.

Miles 2 Human Nature - Paris 91, turning up the heat gradually, wait for it.

Miles 3 Hannibal - 1990 Montreux, deep pocket

Vote for Ricky!! : )

Re: Ricky Wellman
He also played on Da Butt, which automatically places him amongst the most funky drummers ever!
