I saw Billy with Mahavishnu back in the day - truly awesome! :D

I loved the combination of Cobham and Rick Laird in that first Mahavishnu Orchestra.

I've never played with a group let alone drummer but solid as a rock Laird seemed to me to be a perfect foil for Cobham's style of playing.

Saw Billy at Cheltenham Jazz Festival this year - he's one of my favourite players (I'm primarily a drummer) and he hasn't lost an ounce of groove!

At around '74 I wanted some sticks to give me more power and I bought Billy Cobham's signature sticks that you needed wrists of iron to use. I broke 2 pairs and still have this pair that I haven't used for years. Great sticks.
