Here is a short but sweet diddy from Cosmos 1972 album. Doug Clifford is one of the smoothest behind a kit, definitely an influence of mine. His drumming in the pocket so tight you can count the loose change down to the penny.

This is awesome! I've been waiting for this album to be re-released and it is now available again! Thanks for the heads up! He was my first major influence on drums.

Just listen to the very first track (I Put a Spell on You) from CCR's very first album and was their very first hit.
Clifford had some great songs to really stretch out on at times.

Yep J Boogie he also has been with Credence Clearwater Revisited since the mid late 90s, but that is nonetheless derived from CCR minus Fogerty bros. It was a shame the way they disbanded.

RUOK - Yessr - one of my favorites on the album is “Get Your Raise” but I only posted this one. Clifford was one of the few “rock” drummers to endorse Camco drums. Although I grew up trying to cover his stuff at a young age, for his hi hat sound, I would hit the edge of the tightly closed hat with the shoulder of my stick to try to emulate that definition. Lo and behold he used 16” hi hats so I would never be able to get that chunky sound out of mine.
