[HD] Dennis Chambers - Drum Solo (2nd Week) - David Letterman 8-25-11

If you like Dennis...and you like The Funky're gonna LOVE this one! Dennis plays the song so well, and his solo is quite a greasy cheeseburger with a side of onion rings. Some people have been complaining because he didn't "go all out"...but you know what, I've enjoyed the past few nights of the Letterman show. It's been really refreshing to see some drummers play actual compositions rather than blowing for 5 minutes. Too often we as drummers feel this pressure to play more notes rather than playing more music. Music always trumps physical prowess...I bet you couldn't tell me who the fastest drummer in the world is right now. But I bet you could all explain why you love Steve Gadd...or Manu Katche...or Art Blakey. It's about the music guys...let's keep it that way! Cheers Mr. Chambers for a job well done.
