Default Richard Bailey

I just received the Jeff Beck album this Xmas (altough I have heard it many times) and saw the name of the drummer as Richard Bailey. I went looking for some background for him on the site and found nothing. Can you explain?

P.S. it was on the Blow by Blow album.

Agree, it's odd that he's so low profile after playing the house down on one of the most loved fusion albums. He was only 19 at the time of recording Blow By Blow too. He's worked with some high level artists like Mick Taylor, Brian Eno and Steve Winwood since so I guess he's content to stay under the radar as an elite sideman.

Also, it's a myth that Billy Cobham played on BBB under a non de plume - it was definitely Richard Bailey.

I believe in work in TV/movies sound tracks after that session? Denis

One of my first albums (BBB), inspired me to play drums. Check this out:

Most of the Incognito albums have Richard Bailey on drums. I assume it's the same guy, but I don't know for sure. Great drummer, anyway.
