So, Phil Gould.
Could he be the world's most underrated groove player? Had a stretch as a founder member of Level 42 who he left in 87. Hasn't done much since but has recently released two albums (Watertight & Terraforming) both replete with some restrained 'pocket' pop playing. Less hubris than Husband (who I love btw), with a great snare sound and fantastic feel. If you're a fan of this kind of drumming then you may already know about him. If not then check it out.
Gavin Harrison has mentioned nicking some ideas off him, I believe.
Anyone else care to comment?
