Default Re: Billy Cobham

He must be one of the best drummers in music history, his technic is unlimited. Each rolls he does are just perfect and full of fury. As on "I wonder" (Mahavishnu Orchestra) is played my favourite guitar solo, as well there's the best drum roll i've ever heard. His very fast rythms full of ghost notes are a waste of time to understand, I think he was a precursor of drum'n'bass rythmics.
As far as my musical culture goes, and according to my tastes, i think that compared to other drumming icons, Billy Cobham is a rare one that have mainly been involved in interesting musical projects......but that's more personnal!!
