My band did some recording in Web 4 studios here in Atlanta. Nigel did some recording there and left his hihat stand. The studio engineer said I could have it. Good old Slingerland... it's got vibes all over it.
Cool! I remember seeing him with Sir Elton in a Central Park concert many many years ago and , yes, he fit the music like a glove. For me he was Rock n' Roll's version of Steve Gadd
