´50 ways to play your drums´
Steve Gadd is the longest band member in Paul Simons group, starting to play with him in 1975. Whenever it is possible for Steve he is touring with Paul (he also plays for many other musicians like Eric Clapton or James Taylor). In the drummers world he is known as one of the best living jazz drummers.
His most famous song is '50 ways' because of its really tricky drums. The song was build out of this drum part only, and Paul once said that he does not know any other drummer who can play that lick exactly like Steve, because it is really hard.
Steve also appeared in Pauls movie 'One trick pony' showing his acting talent. He also has his own fans who come to Simon concerts just to see Steve Gadd.
Steve appeared on the following albums.
Still crazy after all these years
