Re: Keith Carlock
First thing is first: Steely Dan is the greatest rock/jazz/commerical whatever band to have ever existed.
Second- Keith Carlock sure is an awesome drummer.
My only complaint about him is that he's a little too repetitive to me. I appreciate the emphasis on pocket/groove/touch/ and taste, but when it comes to soloing, after you've heard him a couple times, it's the same thing everytime. You know what I mean? It seems like he just has two ideas:the 2ndline/funk grooves and that double strokes/kick fill. And he'll pull that out be it jazz or rock.
