Default Re: Abe Laboriel jr.

I saw Abe play live twice with McCartney and I was blown away, not just by his drumming...he also was singing backups and harmonies. Man, his bass drum was HUGE, I couldn't believe it. If I was to sit behind his kit, I'd look like a midget!

I also liked Blair Cunningham, who toured with McCartney after her released the "Off the Ground" album...I saw him back in '91. Great drummer as well, and I believe he played with the Pretenders too.

I'm sort of bummed that Abe didn't play any drum tracks on McCartney's new album, but he did do some percussion.
