Re: Jim Keltner
Drummers like Keltner seem to be the favorite of everyone except the other drummers.
He's one of those that makes your music shine, without shining the light on himself (unless you know what it's all about)...and makes the other musicians sound really good.
Other drummers with that quality would be Tony Thompson, Paul Leim, Jamie Oldaker, John Robinson, Burleigh Drummond, Curt Bisquera etc...
Drummers that make other musicians really want to play with them...and make them first call for producers ;o)
