Three excellent drummers!Love Peter! I followed Maynard a bit when I was a kid and I think Peter played with him in the 70s, before he joined Weather Report. Bob Economou was the next drummer, and the last time I saw Maynard was when the one and only Gregg Bissonette played with him I think in ‘79.
Which, on the one hand, he obviously fits in with that insanely august group just fine. And on the other hand, while it's not exactly news, sometimes it still hits you: holy cow, they hired most of the most amazing studio drummers of the time. That is a staggering collection of names.I suspect that both Donald and Walter were hoping for a bit more jazz voodoo on that tour than I was willing to impart; the recorded drum parts seemed so perfect to me that I could barely stray from the original patterns and beats (though I would never claim to being able to play with the pocket and funk of mssrs Porcaro, Gordon, Keltner, Purdie, Marotta, and Gadd). All in all, a lot of fun to be part of a big rock-and-roll tour.
