I was fortunate enough to have been browsing Youtube when it popped up. Anytime this dude is playing drums, I'm hypnotized... It also made me hungry.

one of my favorite rock drummers ever

every time I see Clutch I can't take my eyes off JP

while touring with my old band All Parallels for a lot of years....many times I was called mini JP
I guess the beard and some similar mannerisms ....I never minded the comparison

see us here live at Building Studios in Baton Rouge LA in 2008 .....

Recently bought the two Five Horse Johnson albums he played on. Have been flogging them incessantly over the last couple of days. Can't get enough of his groove. Honestly the more I hear of this guy, the more I wanna hear. If you're a fan and haven't heard him layin' it down with these cats, it's well worth checking 'em out.

I stumbled across Clutch years ago quite by accident. Jean-Paul instantly became one of my favorite drummers. His grooves and live playing have so much soul!

Clutch has got to be one of Maryland's best kept secrets.

Only found out about Clutch about a year or so ago, but I'm a massive fan. JP is an amazing drummer, his sense of groove, time, and tasteful musicality are always such a pleasure to listen to. I was going to list my favorite songs, but they're all actually amazing. My favorite album is definitely Robot hive/Exodus though. Guess what's getting lined up in the playlist for tomorrow!

Yep. I'm only a couple of months ahead of you it would seem. Where the hell have we been......under a rock......in a cave.......on another planet?

For a band that appears to have such a large, dedicated and loyal following, they certainly do tread quietly and move stealthily.......a real hidden (from the mainstream, at least) gem.

But ultimately, JP's playing has affected me in much the same way. I've gone out and bought absolutely everything I can find that he's lent his hand to. Just about all the Clutch albums, naturally. But also The Bakerton Group, and King Hobo, and as I mentioned the last two Five Horse Johnson albums he played on, I just cannot get enough of this guys touch, feel, immense groove, creativity and expression on a drum kit. I reckon he's just awesome. One of the most exciting, creative and musically intelligent drummers I've heard in a long time.

I may be late to this party.....but I'm thankful it's a case of 'better late than never.'
