the mighty wonder.

I often get asked (like all of us musicians do) who I admire as drummers go, who my favorites are. The obvious choices for myself will always be guys like John Bonham, Phil Rudd, Ringo, Charlie, Moonie. Some of the not so obvious ones would be Steve Jordan, Yuval Gabay, Abe Laboriel Jr. and the legend himself Mr. Stevie Wonder. Many people don’t realize that Stevie played on most of his 1970’s classic Motown recordings. His approach to the drums and the musicality within his playing is something total unique to Stevie that nobody can ever replicate. It’s musical, oozing with soul, and his touch and feel are something no drum school can ever teach. Here’s a little Stevie solo from back in the day that’s just a pleasure to watch. The man!
