Default Re: Barriemore Barlow

I reckon Barriemore Barlowe is absolutely amazing. The fills during the intro to "No Lullaby" on Bursting Out are immaculate. I learned to play kit by playing along with Thick As A Brick (when it was still fresh..). I read in a Modern Drummer interview dated sometime in the early '80's that Barlowe's favourite drummer was Harvey Burns who played on the Cat Steven's classics - Tea For The Tillerman etc.. I don't think of Burns as a technician like Barlowe, but when it comes to pure musicality, they both sit right in the pocket... Not just tub thumpers.. musicians!
