Default Re: Benny Benjamin

Yeah, Benny and Uriel were great. If you haven't already, you might wanna pick up a copy of Standing in the Shadows of Motown. I was recently reading an old copy of MD or DrumHead and one of the other Funk Brother drummers (I think it was Pistol Pete) was saying how they would go down into the basement in the morning never knowing if there would be a drumset there or not because Benny would often go in in the evening and take the kit and pawn it to pay for his ... ummm ... vices.
