Default Re: Carlos Vega

I really only heard him on a few recordings he did with James Taylor and yes, the man was solid. But my being a fan actually came from meeting the man. Stan at Pro Drum Shop in Hollywood built me a bass drum some years ago, and when I went down to pick it up, Stan actually let me put the hardware back on it. As I was finishing it up and giving it a tuning, Carlos Vegas walks in and admires it and then asks if he could play it. The man's right foot slammed it for a while and what he played was impressive. He told me it was the best sounding bass drum he'd ever heard - so if a guy like that can compliment my tuning abilities, then I'm a fan!
