Re: Chad Smith
I saw Billy Cobham at London's Ronnie Scott's club 2-3 months ago.
(I timed that flight ok:-)
Sitting front of stage about 15 feet from his B/d.
Fantastic playing....it's a v.small club anyway.
Cobham & Smith.
Can't compare. Tea & coffee. Both drinks....very different.
Of course Cobhan is technically better I guess..the music he plays demands it...
Smith does a great job with his type of music.
I swore I wouldn't respond to a "who is best" question....I just wanted to make some of you envious that I saw Billy Cobhan.
One of those unforgettable gigs.
"And he plays drums."
