Cozy Powell; powerful drummer. That performance is from the Pete York Super Drumming video volume I.

There are three Pete York super Drumming videos. Other talented percussionists on the volume I video: Louie Bellson, Gerry Brown, Bill Bruford, Billy Cobham, Dave Mattacks, Nicko McBrain, Nippy Noya, Ian Paice, Simon Phillips, Cozy Powell, Freddie Santiago, Zak Starkey and Pete York.

Cozy was one of the all time great Rock Drummers for sure! I'm glad his name comes up on these forums now and again. How great is that Thin Lizzy video that featured him as well as The Late Gary Moore? Gary had to be one of the best all around guitar players ever. Great Stuff

Kip,
The DVD copy of Pete York's Super Drumming volume I lists track1 as Cozy Powell, Pete York and Band; "Dance With The Devil"

http://www.deep-purple.net/review-files/superdrum/superdrumming.htm

I only have vol I and II of the Super Drumming series. Maybe "Dancing With The Devil" is on volume III as well.

Yeah, it's from the Super Drumming series. Got them all.Good to read someone's familiar with the DVDs I have both the original VHS as dvd didn't exist when it was first introduced.
Great drumming and musicianship! Wolfgang Schmidt is a monster on bass and works with Marco M. occasionally!

Peter W. is a phenom on guitar. So many sick players on these releases!
