Default Re: Steve Smith

I've seen Steve Smith twice, once with Vital Information and once with Buddy's Buddies. Extremely dynamic drummer. Fantastic musician overall. I met him briefly and he was not overly warm. A bit of a distant / shy type.

Of course, everyone should strongly study Vital Information and Journey. However, there are a few recordings he did that show a slightly different side of his playing that with the above two bands :

Y&T - 10
Bryan Adams - Reckless
Goodman/Smith/Levy/Burbridge - The Strangers' Hand
Neal Schon - Late Nite
Neal Schon - Beyond The Thunder
Neal Schon - Electric World (also featuring Walfredo Reyes Jr.)
Stef Burns - Swamp Tea
