Default Re: Jeff Porcaro

Not only was he a "less is more" guy, playing-wise, he was apparently in the gear department too. He didn't bring 50 snare drums to every session or anything like that. He used one kit and maybe a primary and a piccolo and one set of cymbals. People hired him to sound like HIM. Truly amazing cat. Watching him and JR, make me want to switch back to matched grip... almost. ;)
