Re: Bill Cobham the best drummer?
different strokes and all that, but there is no question that cobham was, is and always will be a phenomenal drummer. powerful, inventive, articulate... we could go on and on!
i was listening to 'vital transformation' this morning, from his earlier days with mahavishnu, and billy is just SICK!!
i really enjoy watching him play, too. very unique approach.
you can agree to disagree with your friend, but you should definitely check out some cobham before you make blanket decisions.
there are MANY incredible drummers out there, and they each have something distinctive to offer.
