Greg Errico, (born September 1, 1948 in San Francisco, California) is an Italian-American musician/record producer, best known for being the drummer for the popular and influential psychedelic soul/funk band Sly & the Family Stone. Errico was the original drummer for the band, and the first to quit it in early 1971 because of the band's continuing turmoil. At least part of this turmoil was alleged to relate to the Black Panthers pressuring Sly Stone to replace Errico and Jerry Martini with black musicians.
Greg Errico later collaborated with bands such as Santana and the Grateful Dead. He also worked with Larry Graham from Sly & The Family Stone, plus members of the Tower of Power horns, Journey and the Pointer Sisters on legendary, cult, funk artist Betty Davis, temporary wife of jazz legend Miles Davis.
Errico still lives in the Bay Area, and continues to play and produce. One of his recent projects was producing the Jamie Davis big band album. He also played at the 2006 Grammy Awards Sly & the Family Stone tribute alongside most of his former bandmates.
Errico played at Woodstock and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993
