I see your point Leedy but it's too bad alot of these guys live in relative anonimity after making some of the best pop music in the world. Simply because they were studio whores and not the shiny kid on the album cover.leedybdp said:How about Hal Blaine and the other prolific studio drummers of days gone by? Work is work, And it probably paid as well to to drum for "Yummy Yummy Yummy. I've got love in my tummy" as it did to drum for "Turn, Turn, Turn". Tommy Tedesco was a guitarist with The Wrecking Crew. Tommy told me countless stories about taking the money and running. His book and Hal Blaine's book give lots of the details about being studio "whores" with their dignity still intact. Our own Tommy Wells can probably testify to this matter.
I agree 100%. I think that may have happened to me once or twiceSteveB said:I think most guys will use their friends until they feel they aren't cutting it. Then when they make it big they'll bring in Gadd or Blaine for the recordings. I think a LOT of drummers fit in this category...talent and chops are only a couple of ingredients.
