The GREAT Gary Mallaber

This guy is amazing...plays stuff that makes me go, "Really...
why didn't I think of that" or "Simple sounding, but so perfectly

That fill @1:38 for a pop rock tune = perfection!

Similar type fill again @0:13 Amazing!

Gary is a master of feel and purposeful quirkiness that slides into the music unobtrusively. Those Steve Miller tracks with a trashy crash...brilliant, it adds a cool energy to the tune.

Plays the hell out of this song, nice pocket, right there with the feel. Sort of a mid-80s REM-ish sound.
