Michael McDonald, for melody and vocals. Porcaro was a great match for his style of course.

This one changed the tide for me. Raw, power, finesse, organic drum sound,
the purity of it all...Tony (signature personality)!

The Toto song that did it for me. I was 11, and for the first time, I *got* dynamics in pop music.
It was a chilling moment. I suddenly knew what challenges lay in front of me.


Trilok Gurtu: The title song from 'Believe'. It struck me that the only one you have to sound like is yourself.


The first time I got hit by Nicci Wallin aka "The Other Per Lindwall" (one of the best grooves I EVER heard)


Per fucking Lindwall:


Meeting Virg in '96 was a turning point. He was one of the nicest guys I ever met, and we formed
a friendship from that day on. When OTV was released, I realised I was exposed to something and someone really unique.
Native Metal taught me SO much:


1996 was probably when I was really hooked on Weckl. I had his first solo albums but 'Between The Lines' made me stupendously aware of his amazing time
and 'Bait Tone Blues' was a prime example of that.


'Late In The Evening' got me worshipping Gadd:


I was already quite your JR fan, but when 'Q's Jook Joint' was released, I had to surrender fully. Holy shit, the man can swing too?!?


'24 Nights' was when I discovered Steve Ferrone. To this day I get goose bumps from his timing on the fills and his overall time in 'Sunshine Of Your Love'
(starts at 19:50)

I was lucky enough to have seen this band on this tour. Trilok was unfathomable.

Eliane Elias - A Long Story --> Musical drumming at its best with Peter Erskine !!


John Scofield - Picks And Pans --> You pay attention when Omar Hakim mentions this album as being one of his best!! The whole band definitely caught the wave here.. Love the snare intro...


Genesis - Firth Of Fifth --> My favorite Genesis song ever


Jethro Tull - No Lullabye Live 1978 --> Barriemore Barlow, enough said!!


UZEB - Fast Emotion --> Love the mix, the whole tune, that's the album that caught everyone's attention back then


Chick Corea - Humpty Dumpty --> Joe Farrell does it for me on this one


Weather Report - Harlequin --> A beauty!

Stephane, you have great taste! :)

I played with a Genesis tribute band a long time ago, and we recorded Firth of Fifth for this record: https://play.spotify.com/album/2n7y4zj1gp2DeMUJ9eXbFL

The sound isn't great. It was all done in one day, mostly live in the studio. Plus, they ended up editing out a big section because it was too long for the compilation. I can't remember the singer's name, but he was from somewhere in Quebec.
