Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.
Beauty lies in the simple things. That's what Gadd is all about. If it wasn't you wouldn't have all the great drummers Weckl etc.....mentioning his name. Yes, many can play chops and dsiplay amazing technique, but you can as well if you put in the same amount of practice. I ain't impressed.
But putting together some groove together that leaves it's mark for years is artistics and creative and that's what puts Gadd at a different level. Let's see how many chop masters will be remembered after they've done their time. Not many, but they can play chops to thier hearts content. Masters leave a mark that's remembered for years.
