The value of groove drummers

Definitely when I was young, I discounted groove players, not having the maturity to recognize they bring something to the table that many drummers with more facility don't (and vice versa).

Re: Walter Becker RIP

The quick and short of it is that Becker and Fagen mastered songwriting, and then they did it justice by bringing in musicians who had mastered playing. It's a combination that's never been matched IMO. Huge loss and eternally grateful for their music.

Re: Justin Faulkner

Man, Justin is a monster. He's got it all, but IMO few people can complement a solo like he can with his phrasing/comping. Ie:

Re: TOTO XIV w/Carlock

For the Simon era, I'd recommend that 'Livefields' album I posted a song from. Monstrous rock playing, amazing sound.

Re: TOTO XIV w/Carlock

It doesn't get me in knots, but I just disagree with this characterization of Simon, and I wonder if it's biased by his drum kit appearance, recording history, etc. Simon's pocket and groove is huge. Sure, he pulls out the chops more often, but he does so in an extremely musical manner and the time ...
