Default Re: Carlton Barrett

Carlton Barrett is the most unsung drummer in modern history. He and his brother Aston formed the rhythm section responsible for more danceable grooves in the 20th century than any other outfit. Together they invented the One-Drop groove. How many drummers invented a new groove? Carlton is "The Man" and I wish I could have seen him live more than the two concerts I was privileged to take in starring Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Thanks for starting a thread honoring one of music's greatest drummers.
