Default Re: Billy Martin

He is the king of dirty playing.

I just love how he fluidly switches back and forth between swung and straight 8th notes -- THAT's what makes his grooves so deeelicious, and I emulate that style as much as I can while still being versatile enough for most music (read - still be able to play straight like a machine).

He's almost like the Bonham of the funk/jazz/jam band world, if I may make such a bold statement.
