Yeah, Phil Gould for sure. In my opinion, an underrated player.Fun question and cool suggestions gang... Congratulations and welcome to the 16" HH club VB!
As a pop player, for me other than all of the afore mentioned Stewart / Police cuts, tracks that come to me are....
Michael McDonald - I Keep Forgettin' (Jeff Porcaro) Amazing 16th note base
Gino Vannelli - Nightwalker (Vinnie Colaiuta) Smooth open pluse in head and turns and pretty busy the whole track
Level 42 - It's Over (Phil Gould) You have to listen but a lot of different techniques here in a changing pattern
Ha, great hat sound! I wonder if that's a ghost drummer...great groove though!Bullet Boys Smooth UP in YA, great hi hat work for sure!
