Friday Feature: Tony Williams

Just start here.

Are you back? Good. Not much more I can tell you about Tony Williams except that he's one of the great players of all time, and has had as much influence on modern drumming as any other player, and more than the vast majority.

I saw Tony Williams play a clinic in Salt Lake City shortly before he died. It was one of the experiences that helped to shape my view of what drumming is, and what's possible. He was very classy, a fiery performer, and very willing to pass on what he knew.

Thanks, Tony, for giving us your gift. We still miss you!

Happy drumming!
