Second-Happiest Drummer Ever

Bernard Purdie can play the drums, y'all.

And he's the moon, the stars, and the sun on the Intertunnel, too.

Bernard Purdie.

The guy with the backwards hat and the tobacco sunburst Strat in the combined video (last one listed) is David Taub who is a very talented guitarist and instructor. I bought a bunch of his DVD videos for my Granddaughters to learn from after I taught them the basics.

That was way cool - loved it.

Purdie's amazing - two legendary performances on Steely Dan's Aja album ("Deacon Blues" and "Home At Last"). He would (maybe still does) show up at sessions with a sign reading “You done hired the hit maker,” which he'd display on a music stand near his kit.
