Yes, his psychedelic work is great.
Just been listening to some of their early work again - Saucerful of Secrets
, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
, Careful with That Axe, Eugene
... love his drumming ideas and execution in those pieces. Great to watch on the Pompeii
video too. Hard to care about technicalities when atmospheres like that are being created.
He also plays slow parts superbly, eg. Us and Them
, Shine On You Crazy Diamond
