DRUMMERWORLD PRO DRUMMER
Hi all the folks at Drummerworld!
I met you a number of times during your various tours with Billy Cobham, which were always stellar. You were always very approachable and down-to-earth.
For those that don't know, Gary is equally amazing on the keys.
Welcome on board Gary, so please to have you here
Seen you years ago in clinic in London and Frankfurt (both music fair), it was the Level 42 years.
"Staring at the Sun" is still one of my fav album
For those interested in Gary, I'm sure that you'll want to check out the new album SPHERE released today.
Here are a few links:
Documentary on the making of SPHERE
Still Invictus (drum solo)
Celestial Roots (drum solo)
Right on Time (drum solo)
You can get the album on CD, download & stream. There is also a limited edition with 3 bonus tracks available at the following link:
Thank you sir!
I have some nice feelings about some of the things on Staring At The Sun, but in general I'm of the firm conviction Phil Gould was and will always be the real only drummer that made that music and that band work. It was never my real strength at all in any great way, and I left it behind, many years ago.
I hope you can hear some of the Antoine Fafard SPHERE album clips in his post here for instance to bring you up to date (should you be curious) on who I am and what it sounds like in 2016!
Hope you enjoy it. It's a very nice album and my new custom red Pearl double kit sounds amazing.
Best wishes to you and thanks again.
Yes, I will listen to Antoine's links
I also have kind of followed your career a little, so I'm not too unfamiliar with your work.
Oh, I've seen you as well at the Zildjian Day in 1993 in Kentish Town with Billy, Gregg and Simon, fun memories!
Your work with Holdsworth was a total inspiration for me growing up. Thanks for creating such great music. Look forward to hearing your new stuff.
