“I’m not flattering him when I say that he is the man – quite simply my favourite drummer to play with…his groove is so big and fat and utterly there, that it acts like a small planet, pulling your own notes into its centre through some sort of rhythmic gravity.”

(Pete Langman, Slender Threads)

Arrangers

It could be argued that the unsung hero of any successful musical performance is the person (or persons) who have arranged the music. No matter how good a song or the performance is, its arrangement is critical to the listener fully connecting with it. With some bands, an arrangement is often a collaborative process, requiring countless hours in a rehearsal room jamming, experimenting, compromising, cajoling or even shouting!
