Default Re: Jeff Porcaro

Here's a question that asked to Steve Lukather and his answer kinda explain what made Jeff so great!


"Hey Luke! What makes a good drummer?"


Luke: Well, groove, TIME, FEEL and taste. Chops are great and a plus, but that does NOT make a great drummer!!! I have been blessed to play with the best there is on the planet at one time or another. I don't know why but I guess "right place right time". I was raised sitting and playing with Jeff Porcaro when I was 15. Not too many cats are that lucky. From there I was turned on to all the greats, young and old. Hell, Ringo was my first drum hero and his work still holds up!
