The late Jeff Porcaro in the studio

Jeff is the cat who played drums on the Wall, played on David Gilmour’s solo stuff, and was also a main creative force behind TOTO (I know, but.). Not only that, he was a session drummer for countless HUGE recordings, and at 17, was the house drummer for the Sonny and Cher show, back when TV shows had live bands doing the incidental music and things like that.

He had the best feel I have ever heard, and was simply solid all the time. The way he played the grooves he came up with and the way he played with authority is what he is remembered for, as well as his clean and crisp playing. So much good drumming from Jeff on many, many recordings.
