Default Re: Cozy Powell

I saw him with Rainbow in the mid-70s and he was impressive. I usually find drum solos pointless but his 1812 Overture solo was a a buzz.

But IMO Cozy's most imaginative playing was on Jeff Beck's orange album, as in Ice Cream Cakes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N74N-JmjBo8) and Sugar Cane. Plus some tasty clean drumming on Definitely Maybe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhrsDEnUlJM).
