Happy Birthday Steve Gadd

Drummer Steve Gadd just celebrated a birthday on April 9th.

Gadd’s discography is amazing; he’s performed, recorded and toured with Al Di Meola, The Bee Gees, Chick Corea, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Jim Croce, Joe Cocker, Jon Bon Jovi, Manhattan Transfer, Michael McDonald, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon and Steely Dan, among others.

Some of my favorite albums featuring Steve Gadd are ‘Riding with the King’ with BB King and Eric Clapton, ‘Aja’ and ‘Gaucho’ with Steely Dan. His amazing discography spans four decades.

A great DVD of Gadd’s performance is an L.A. concert with Eric Clapton on ‘One More Car, One More Rider.’ Clapton’s touring band is awesome with Steve Gadd on drums, Andy Fairweather-Low on guitar, Nathan East on bass, and Billy Preston and David Sancious on keyboards.

Here’s a great performance of Steve Gadd performing with the Buddy Rich Big Band…
