In this video, Russ Miller mentions drummers he knew and knows well, and ran into all over the place during the active studio recording times in the 80s & 90s in Los Angeles. Russ is still among those hired guns going from studio to studio to record for any possible artist, commercial or whatever job that needs drums.
While Russ has recorded with numerous famous artists, he decides to talk about his friends and heroes. Where Russ has seen it all, his inspiration still comes from other greats like Neil Peart, David Garibaldi, Steve Smith and a legendary Cuban drummer called Carlos Vega, who was just like Jeff Porcaro one of the best drummers on the scene in their time.
That is the ultimate of being humble, when you are recording everyday for all types of artists, movies and TV Series being watched and heard by millions every week.
Considered the greatest Rock drummer of All Time, Russ picks John Bonham as the perfect example for the perfect drum sound.
