Influences

As a rule, I am drawn to drummers who know how to lay down interesting grooves without walking on the rest of the band. For example...
- John JR Robinson (Michael McDonald, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson)
- Steve Jordan (David Sanborn, Eric Clapton, John Mayer)
- Paul Leim (Lionel Richie, Roy Orbison, Shania Twain - too many to list)
- Of course, Dave Weckl (Chick Corea, Mike Stern, Lee Ritenour)
