Default Ian Wallace

Funny how some drummers slip through the net. Not listed on the DW page, no one's included him here either.

I think it's because he's mainly just known for playing on King Crimson's Islands and Earthbound. He's better than those recordings suggest and he was by no means limited to prog, and he's a top echelon player. Some artists he's played for:

Bob Dylan
Don Henley
David Lindley
Bonnie Raitt
Ry Cooder
Larry Coryell
King Crimson
Lonnie Mack
Peter Frampton
Robben Ford
Joe Walsh
Alvin Lee
Warren Zevon
Keith Emerson
Roy Orbison
Jackson Browne
Jon Anderson
Stevie Nicks
Steve Marriott
Crosby, Stills and Nash
Procol Harum
The Traveling Wilburys
Chuck Berry
Lindsey Buckingham
Tim Buckley
Jimmy Buffett
Eric Clapton
Bo Diddley
John Fogerty
Glen Frey
Billy Joel
Little Richard
Dave Mason
Al Kooper
Linda Ronstadt
Boz Scaggs
Bob Seger
Otis Spann
Steve Winwood.

Not sure how many have heard his jazz playing ... here he is playing a cover of 21st Century Schizoid Man with the Crimson Jazz Trio:
