Charlie

LMAO! Keith kicks into the song above way too fast, as he often does.

Very cool nuance to Charlie’s playing is where he doesn’t hit the hi-hat on the back-beat. You can see it clearly in the video above.

And here he is mostly listening to Jim Keltner talk about Charlie’s hi-hat technique. Left-to-right: Interviewer, then…

Jim Keltner – Top session drummer. Played with many and is the drummer on Neil’s ‘Live at Red Rocks’. Played drums for the Traveling Wilburys.

Hal Blaine – Drummer for the ‘Wrecking Crew’. The session musicians in the 1960’s in L.A. that played on 100’s of the songs you heard, most often in place of the musicians you thought were playing. Beach Boys. Byrds. To name two.

Charlie Watts – Jazz drummer

Now I’m in my car
I got the radio down
I’m yellin’ at the kids in the back
’cause they’re bangin’ like Charlie Watts
