  • Loads of drummers....

    ....on this site, with this clip being particularly enjoyable:

    i've got the video that's taken from - it's called 'Soul Of The Funky Drummers'. the house band on it includes Fred Thomas (JBs), Fred Wesley, John Scofield and Medeski on Hammond. Includes some originals and some covers - about 1 1/2hrs. Absolutely brilliant.

    Incidentally Jabo and Clyde must have been desperate for work when it came out (mid 90s) as their mobile phone numbers are given in the credits!

    Chris and Sie - sounds like a good interview prospect
    Chops for show, groove for dough.

      I don't know if people know this, but Clyde Stubblefield has been diagnosed with bladder cancer and has no health insurance to pay for treatment.

      Apparently he never recieved any royalties from the original recordings ( as James Brown has the writing credits ) or from all the times 'The Funky Drummer' etc has been sampled.

      Well, lots of people have got ripped off by the music industry but, man it seems utterly shameful that such an important person to our whole culture is in this position - there is a website set up to aid him at where people can donate money or gifts.
