great drummer, but all the funk was being played by the other instruments
Ollie Sticksman
Why all the hate? In the pocket drumming, nice sound, tight, dynamic, didn't over play and nicely produced. Hope I get a recording of this standard.
Ruben Salvador
this guy is underrated.

this type of  music  doesnt require any  skill whatsoever. any one just starting out after a few mnts could easily  do it.  after all, theres no difference to it  than any simple pop song -- in fact  pop music is  more difficult to drum to. so called funk  is  more simplified.
