Default Re: Abe Laboriel jr.

First saw him with Macca on the Live 8 video. Thought wow! Who's the animal with the powerhouse groove who's driving the show without even knowing the songs! Y'see, you can watch him check tempos on his metronome in a couple of shots. Meaning that he's not intimately familiar with the material. But he nails it! And then he sings harmonies with Macca. And closes the whole Live 8 show with just him grooving while all the celebs do the endless Hey Jude thing. And then, as if that ain't enough, I check out the video of him singing a duet ( http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/a...ielmylene.html ), and that floors me too!

Top notch musician all the way.
