This is amazing. For a long time, I've had a suspicion that maybe Jeff was on that track. While it doesn't sound exactly like his playing, I'm not surprised to learn he at least had input into it. The sound, itself, is very him.Tommy Taylor, the great drummer/singer for Christopher Cross, relayed the story here on DFO about them having difficulty getting a decent drum track on the eventual hit "Sailing", so the band hired Jeff Porcaro to play on it. (I believe the final take is Tommy, but the parts played were derived from Jeff's approach to the song.)
This is a pic of Porcaro playing Taylor's Sonors with Tommy kneeling beside him.
Can anyone identify this drummer...Just wondering who the drummer is? Very tasteful playing...and a GREAT song. &feature=relatedwww.drumforum.org

Also a great pic, presumably from the actual session.
