Default Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.

Maybe he was playing a house kit? ..................no.........that's not right......

3 things I know about Gadd

Whenever I watch Gadd, I stay silent and still, unconsciously.

His kit sounds great.

He is a huge inspiration, especially to make simple grooves better than complex. By complex I mean Tomas Haake style polyrhythms and different time meters etc. Gadd is complex too, but a nicer complex.

And I'll add a fourth (uh-oh, I'm straying from convention)

The thing he does where he closes the hat in place of a hit, is SO good.
