Re: Ian Paice

I love his playing. Fantastic player. I never understood why he did not get the recognition Bonham or Moon or Appice got. To me he is by far the best drummer that came out of the late 60's / early...

Re: John JR Robinson

To me JR and bassist Neil Stubenhaus are the best rhythm section ever. Check them out on Bill LaBounty's "The Right Direction".

His solo album "Funkshui" is great. I haven't bought "Platinum"...

John JR Robinson

Maybe I am mistaken, but I did not find a thread for the legendary JR.

Although the man has achieved a lot throughout his career, which is still going strong, I always felt that he did not get...

Re: Jim Keltner

Check out some of his work with Keb Mo'.

Jim is superb, and tasteful. Met him at NAMM in 2008, and he was very charming. Funnily enough, there was an Italian gentleman who confused him for...

Re: Steve Riley

Gosh, Steve Riley! I had forgotten about him. I used to really like him in WASP. Remember sawing them opening for Iron Maiden in 1987. Great gig, and Steve was brilliant. I always enjoyed his...

Re: Jay Bellerose

I came across his playing quite a lot recently... He has a unusal style, and is very unique. I have a few stuff he did with Gregg Allman, Elton John and others. Very good player in the vein of Jim...

Re: Mangini v. Portnoy

DT without Portnoy is a different band. Maybe it actually became a real band? ;-) Just joking.

I have seen them live 5 or 6 times between 1995 and 2001 and they were always great. What prevented...

Re: Cozy Powell

I used to be a really big Cozy Powell fan. I saw him a few times with Whitesnake, Black Sabbath and Brian May. Live he was great and solid. And a real showman too.

As I grew older and went back...

Re: Brian Tichy

I saw him play with Sass Jordan in 1994 and Slash in 1995. He is a really good, solid and tasteful rock drummer indeed.

Being an old WS fan, I must say that I find it somewhat difficult to...

Re: Simon Phillips - Which Album To Get?

"Another Lifetime" is a great album.

"Vantage Point" is excellent too, and shows Simon is a be-bop mood.

"Whitesnake" by David Coverdale (first solo album, 1977) has Simon is a very R&Bish...

Re: Randy Castillo

I always like Randy's playing. Very different to that of other players from that era. Listen to his work on Lita Ford's "Dancing On The Edge".

Does anyone know what Mike is up to these days? Last I heard he was doing some sessions for David Roberts (2008) and toured with Vasco Rossi.

Re: Steve Smith

I have met Steve Smith 3 times in small commitee and saw him at NAMM 08 as well. I must say that I can confirm the above statement. He was arrogant and not friendly at all. I love his music and I...

Re: Gary Novak

I've seen him play in front of 12 people at LaVe Lee in L.A. in April 2006 (with Scott Kinsey, Steve Tavaglione and Jimmy Earl). To be honest, I was not very impressed. I did not really like their...

Vinnie is also superb on other Garfield releases such as Brandon Fields's "The Other Place". Check out www.creatchy.com for more info.

One of Vinnie's best recordings IMHO is Karizma's "Document"....

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Because that is the best band that ever came out of L.A. That's why! :-) I am a HUGE Karizma/Los Lobotomys and David Garfield fan.

Did you hear "Tune For Tony" from David Garfield's "Giving Back"....

Re: Dave Weckl

I really dig Weckl with his solo band. The first three albums have a great funky touch whereas the rest of his albums are much more fusionesque. I agree that Weckl sometimes overplay. That's the...

Re: Ringo Starr

Purdie is indeed a great drummer but he is full of himself. I met him a couple of times and he did not come across as the friendliest guy on earth. Sounded rather arrogant to me. Unlike Steve Gadd...
