MEINL Presents: The Funkmasters Interview

John ‘Jabo’ Starks and Clyde Stubblefield – Funkmasters and original James Brown drummers

Known from the ground-breaking beats and grooves that they created during their time with the god-father of soul James Brown, these two living legends have had an enormous influence on the development of modern music. 

To recognize their life’s work, we brought Jabo and Clyde to Nashville, TN where we filmed a two hour interview conducted by Robert ‘Sput’ Searight, drummer for Snarky Puppy. 

We are extremely proud to present this interview, which will be released in six individual episodes over the next couple of months through Meinl’s social media outlets. Please join us in celebrating their tremendous cultural contributions.

Give the drummers some!
