RIP Funky Drummer

Post by strad » 4 years ago

Clyde Stubblefield, a drummer for James Brown who created one of the most widely sampled drum breaks ever, died Saturday. He was 73.
Stubblefield performed on several of Brown's classics in the 1960s and early '70s, including Cold Sweat, Say It Loud — I'm Black and I'm Proud, I've Got the Feelin' and the album Sex Machine.
But he was best known for a short solo on Brown's 1970 single, Funky Drummer.Rolling Stone magazine said it was sampled on more than 1,000 songs and served as the backbeat for countless hip-hop tracks, including Public Enemy's Fight the Power, Dr. Dre's Let Me Ride, LL Cool J's Mama Said Knock You Out and Run-D.M.C.'s Run's House. It even turned up on Ed Sheeran's Shirtsleeves and George Michael's Freedom '90, the magazine said.
If a man can't look at danger and still go on, man has stopped living. If the worst ever happens – then it means simply that I've been asked to pay the bill for the happiness of my life – without a moment's regret. Graham Hill

RIP. An unknown hero for me, must've listened to many hours of his drumming.
