It's going to take one heck of a drummer to handle the rigors of songs like Colour My World and Hard to Say I'm Sorry!
Yeah and we can all pull off "Make Me Smile" or "25 or 6 to 4" in our sleep, right?
I expect that any pro-level drummer who would be interested in playing with Chicago could play all of the necessary parts. The talent that Danny brought to the band wasn't just playing the drum parts, it was creating them.
Agreed. I was being facetious. I think Danny's interplay with the horn arrangements made these songs in much the same way Liberty Devitto's playing added to Billy Joel's arrangements.
OT- Spell correct changed Devitto to Deviate, twice. Got to be careful posting.
