Default Gino Vannelli drummers

have been taking my students through the music of the seventies, one artist they all really like is Gino Vannelli.The music is kind of prog-pop and has great drummers like Graham Lear, Vinnie Colaiuta, Mark Craney, David Garibaldi and Casey Scheuerell.Here is my atempt at one of his songs.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-QFPgIQ6Pc

I saw Gino in London with Enzo Tedesco at the helm. You have to check out his playing and interpretations of the songs. Their is a live album of the tour he did but not sure if still available.

Took a couple of lessons with Casey Scheuerell and he was great, even gave me a copy of his book!

Whoda thunk that Gino would be the topic here on DW. I'd love to be in your class though. Totally cool that kids are digging on Gino. Lots of big hair, and hair in general in his 70s heyday. I only know the great hits, "I Just Wanna Stop", etc.

I always thought, ok, what other song than that one mentions the city Montreal? None... :)

Vannelli’s “Brother to Brother” has drum solos. In a hit pop song!

That dude’s a great singer who’s always surrounded himself with excellent players.

Brother To Brother is a classic-- I need to dig that out. I don't know if he's recorded with him yet, but a smoking local guy Reinhardt Melz is playing with him these days.

My favourite track from Gino Vanelli, Vinnie has a lot to do with it, that drum track is unbelievable, so busy, so overplayed, but fitting so well at the same time :)

I remember reading somewhere that GV is a drummer himself. Maybe that's why he knows how to pick them.

I'm new to this site and really surprised that Grahm Lear is not even on the Top 500 list?? Either Grahm did something to really piss off the maker's of this list or this is one the most incredible oversights I've ever seen. Grahm Lear played a bigger set better than I had ever heard even well into the 90's. It seems that everything he played just fit perfectly into the composition of the piece he was playing in. I thought he was spectacularly creative and he could get pretty complex with his riffs and all of it just fit into the overall sound so perfectly. I thought his versitility and creativity was up there with the best of them in the 70s. He played with Santana for 10 years, I believe. How a drummer could be so accomplished but yet so overlooked is beyond me. Oh, well, I certainly have gotten an incredible amount of enjoyment listening to him.

Mark Craney actually had to audition to play on a subsequent tour. What I mean is the he actually had to audition for a spot in a band that he already toured with and that was after Vinnie Colaiuta had cut the album.

Yeah, the Santana chair isn't an easy gig!

I used to play Tulsa City Limits and there was a picture of REO Speedwagon on the wall. Apparently someone in REO marked thru Graham's face. I always wondered about that and where he disappeared to.
