Default Re: Clyde Stubblefield

Oh yes, among drummers who have influenced me the most, Clyde is definitely in my top 5. If you don't have it already, get the DVD called "Soul of the Funky Drummers" with Clyde and Jabo. Beginning to end, it's them breaking down and demonstrating their beats. It's the one drumming DVD that I revisit over and over again. Those grooves are just....sublime.

Here's some clips from the DVD, right here on Drummerworld:

And this is me, doing a Clyde inspired beat with my band (admittedly, not as groovy as the master).
