The second track, Pots and Pans (starts about 4:18) is especially good.
Yes, I uploaded this link in the "Famous drum intros" a couple weeks ago, sheer power and a nice duet with Pete :)

This is my favorite Cozy Powell track with the Jeff Beck Group.

Sticks, you might like this one. It has a nice piano intro.

Another astonishing performance from the great Cozy Powell :)

A song featured on the 1982 Jon Lord's Before I Forget album, the song's called Tender Babes, Cozy's intro makes you jump off your seat :) and an interesting groove which follows Jon Lord's keyboard's melody, one of my fav Cozy's little gem, turn up the volume and enjoy :)) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPR7tt4du0s

Long live Cozy.

Huge influence on me.

HUGE

Kill the King... hello. Double kick work, the rhythm matching Daisley's bass pattern. What a tune.

Lost in Hollywood.... another fav I've played a zillion times.

Great snare work. I still do his Hi Hat fills 30 years later. Eyes of the World... off of Down to Earth. He has this longish, very composed fill that ends with the HH chips... friggen Brills.

Loves no Friend.... are you kidding me? WHAT A TUNE!

Dude was a monster in every possible way. I loved the first fill in Lost in Hollywood.... the snare to floortom to snare to floortom single stroke stuff. He projected power under control. I have always loved the way he played. Never heard him before Rainbow, didn't follow him after Rainbow. That stuff was just right in my wheelhouse and helped set a trajectory that I'm still on today.

Love this guy.

Man. I gotta go put in Down to Earth. One of the records that changed me.


-Ken

I used to be a really big Cozy Powell fan. I saw him a few times with Whitesnake, Black Sabbath and Brian May. Live he was great and solid. And a real showman too.

As I grew older and went back to my roots (jazz, blues), I started to find Cozy's drumming lacking groove. I love old school powerhouse drummer, mostly Tommy Aldrdige and Ian Paice. These two were always grooving no matter what. With years, I started to find Cozy's drumming a bit "stiff" for lack of better word.

My favourite drumming of his is on his solo album "Especially You". To me, he showed a side of his drumming that was not seen before, in the sense that it was much more subtle and fine. He was much groovier, adding almost an "R&B" touch to his style.

Regardless, Cozy was one of the greatest rock drummers. He had his own style and sound.

Yes, Cozy has his own appeal. He reminds me of a heavier, faster and cleaner version of Ginger Baker - stiffness with enough conviction, musicality and skill to sound cool :)

I've enjoyed listening to Cozy's playing on The Jeff Beck Group's Rough and Ready album since the mid 70's. Does anyone know what cymbals he was using at the time that album was recorded?

Neat interview I found while poking around the other day, sorry if its been posted elsewhere, but defiantly give it a read if you've got the time. He talks a lot about his younger days before he came to fame. Powell was one dedicated dude.

Thanks for this, not one I've seen before, a good find, and an interesting insight, I though the fixing the bass pedal story amusing!
