Re: Billy Cobham
Billy Cobham is the reason I play drums.
I used to listen to Spectrum when I was about 2-3 years old as my dad had it, and I was hooked on the whole album...this was 1975-6...and used to drum along to it....or try at the time.......by the time I was about 6-7 I was pretty much able to the play the groove from the title track.....and still I think his best song ever....
I grew up wanting to be as good as him one day.......so 38 years later and 'some chance!'
I think he's second only to Buddy Rich....but it's a close thing in my eyes....
