The Inventors Of Funk Drumming Video - Clyde Stubblefield + Jabo Starks

What a day! We've just finished filming a huge interview and some playing of the original James Brown drummers Jabo Starks and Clyde Stubblefield, moderated by Snarky Puppy drummer Sput Searight. They have shared some eye-opening facts about their time playing with James Brown, how they came up with their grooves and music, how they feel about being the most sampled drummers in music history, and a ton of other facts and funny stories. 


Those guys are the living encyclopedia of funk drumming and I wanna thank them and Sput for taking the time to do that documentary feature with us. All of the material will be edited and published online our website and social medial channels in a couple of months. Stay tuned, you don't want to miss it.
