Stevland Morris .:Dec 31 69:.


I figure with inaugural blog on the newly redesigned site, I'd like to kick things off with something from one of my musical heroes:

What most folks don't know is that Stevie is KILLER on a drum set -- he was a drummer first and foremost -- and played drums on a majority of his albums. I hesitate to say all because I haven't done research, but I know that Songs in the Key of Life are all Stevie doin drums...I have to look into his other stuff but I'm pretty sure it'll be Stevie everywhere. His drum technique was pretty sick too -- check out Superstition's drunk meter...it just oozed funk and expressiveness and all those other crazy descriptors that really don't do it justice. Just listen to it already.
