Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.
Lol Stu, how does removing my name from my quotation make it less personal to me, when you then label it a 'lowlight' comment that shows I don't 'get Gadd'!? Anyway, I'm not seriously getting up-tight about this, I'd just like the record to state, as I think it should, that my failing to worship one single but very popular Gadd groove does not cast doubt on my Gadd-loving (and 'getting'!) credentials.
Interesting how you say 50 Ways revolves around the drum part, but that the drum part is in turn the perfect part for the song. It makes me wonder which came first, the chicken or the egg? Seriously, does anyone know how that part came into existence? My gut feeling, and hence why I may be disparaging about the part, is that it was a groove Gadd had come up with in his own time and wanted to play in a song, and found one he could fit it into to.
