James Brown - Give The Funky Drummer Some! (RIP Clyde Stubblefield)
Clyde Stubblefield (April 18, 1943 - February 18, 2017) was an American drummer best known for his work with James Brown. Stubblefield's recordings with James Brown are considered to be some of the standard-bearers for funk drumming, including the singles "Cold Sweat", "There Was a Time", "I Got The Feelin'", "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Mother Popcorn", "Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved" and the album Sex Machine. His rhythm pattern on James Brown's "Funky Drummer" is among the world's most sampled musical segments. It has been used for decades by hip-hop groups such as Public Enemy, Run-D.M.C. , N.W.A. and among countless others. Hip Hop would not be the same if it wasn't for these 2 that laid the foundation for the true Hip Hop culture.
