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).
I always like Cozy one of the most powerful drummers of all time IMO right up there with Bonham I always liked Jeff Beck's "Situation" & "Going Down" which I believe Cozy played on, My favorite drum sound Cozy had was on Whitesnake's "Slide it In" so powerful & in your face.

RIP Cozy,
