Clive Deamer love
So IF you heard Portishead you heard Clive Deamer. If you SAW Roni Size(drum and Bass) live you saw Clive Deamer.
He doesn't do ANYTHING technically astounding but his timing is impeccable.
He has GREAT gretsch tone, and I believe he uses Paiste most of the time.
The newest Portishead, "THird" has a lot of his work, I do believe he did play int he studio.
Timing, taste, and musicality.
For YEARS he has been an influence. I do believe he ALSO played with Robert Plant, the former singer of Zeppelin.
Any of you UK drummers love him too?
Talk about underrated.
