A world tour backing Clappers might be the ultimate test for a jobbing drummer, but this double live album proved Spinetti’s unchallengeable talent.
Henry Spinetti says:
“People like Eric don’t tell you how to play – they like your drumming and that’s why you’re there. You obviously need to have a certain amount of technique, but it’s all about the feel.”
“All he was interested in was getting a good groove. Whether that happened or not, you tell me!”
“The only solo I ever played with Eric was on the last night of that tour, when the crew started taking my kit away and Eric shouted, ‘And now – a solo from Henry Spinetti!’ All I had was a bass drum and a snare, and one broken stick.”
