Be sure to check out part 2!! Chester Thompson Drum solo, from a clinic 1998 at Thoroughbred Music Orlando. Chester Cortez Thompson made his name as a session drummer, hes played in Frank Zappa’s touring band (as part of the much loved 1973-1974 lineups. played on Zappa albums as “One Size Fits All, “Roxy & Elsewhere”, and “Overnite Sensation”. His longest standing gig was with Genesis from 1977, playing on their tours in that year, 1978, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983/4, 1986/7 and 1992/3 and is set to play on the 2007 Turn it on again tour. chester released his own solo album, A Joyful Noise. also played with Carlos Santana drumming on a few tours. blah blah. chester is one of the cats. Chester’s playing style is widely acknowledged and respected. some of that was taken from wikipedia

Chester also played on the Weather Report ‘Black Market” recording with Alex Acuna on percussion and Jaco on bass. That is one badaxx album!!

@thomasash What do you think I don’t take showers like you? I have heard Phil Collins ever since I was child and thought that he was a piece of shit then as a drummer. I saw Chester in a drum clinic back in ’88 and he was fire way better than Phil Collins . Dude I’m sorry I hurt your feelings , and that you are so sensitive BROA !!!

Great drummer. I still listen to ‘3 Sides Live’ pretty regularly, and I like the stuff he did with Zappa. I never can figure how he can play the drums sitting so high like that though. I’d mess my back up. 🙂

@iFoRgOtMyPsSwRd I have felt that Phil’s 80s drumming was generally not as creative and vibrant as his 70’s drumming (with Genesis AND with the jazz fusion band, Brand X)…but I can try to respect your feelings about his drumming skills…as for Chester, I am mostly familiar with his work on the (Genesis) “Seconds Out” live album – and I felt he had a nice flow …

@sgtpepper1138 I’m thinking that Ringo’s drumset was arranged at a lower height back then (making it seem that he was sitting higher) – but I may need to watch “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Help” again (maybe I’m the one who is wrong)…

@davss5 I must agree with you on the 70s to 80s. but dats Phil within Phils degeneration on drumming at still such a young age within himself . much no arguing his great success but his drumming to me is somewhat boring

@iFoRgOtMyPsSwRd Thanks for your response…so (for clarification), are you saying that Phil’s drumming particularly since the 80s has been boring?…if so, then I might not use the word “boring” but “more simplified” (compared to his 70s drumming)…I could agree that Phil’s solo career has been successful – although I only prefer hardly a handful of his songs (e.g., “Take Me Home”, “Against All Odds”, “You’ll Be in My Heart”)…for whatever reasons, Phil decided on the “simpler” approach…
