Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.
No it was not a big thing and no time to get nervous - I didn't really play for the master. Just we all stand around - i had a media badge - taking pictures and joking and while Steve changed some cymbals i asked for permission to sit down and he laughed. So some taps here and some taps there - like a tech......
But then he really worked on the Snare, some screwing up and some down - for me it seemed: no special system - for some minutes sure - then he had to stop, because they openened the doors for the audience.
