This apple possessed by the spirit of a cat is pretty good...
a much overlooked drummer, Michael Clarke, the guy on the kit when country rock was born. Byrds, Flying Burritos.
That what John Lydon said at the beginning of that clip should be on Baker's tombstone.That is one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen, whatever you think of the subject.
(Meaning, even if you weren't as fascinated by Ginger Baker as I am, you could still appreciate the artistry of the filmmakers.)
Luckily for Phil, with people of the youngest generation discovering his music and being blissfully unaware of all the backlash, he's being judged on his musicianship rather than his reputation.An Honorable Mention for Phil Collins. He was once great, even though he wasn't much later in his career.
I wasn't a Led Zeppelin fan for most of my life, but in recent years I have come to realize they were probably the most all-around talented group of musicians to ever form a band, especially John Paul Jones and John Bonham. I have decided that John Bonham is the greatest rock drummer who ever lived. Anyhow, today would have been Bonham's 74th birthday.
I think Fool in the Rain is one of the best examples of his talent - sadly, the band never played it live.
The Ocean is another good example.
