I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

What Can I Do - Charles Williams

Charles "Hungry" Williams, born New Orleans, LA February 12, 1935, the guy who started it. Earl Palmer says he thought Hungry Williams was the guy who originated that beat used by Clyde Stubblefield with "Cold Sweat," (James Brown). When he displaced the backbeat, was another landmark. That was a very important milestone in funk drumming. In terms of other monumental changes, of course, the ghost note that came in with the James Brown thing was an important step in the evolution of funk drumming. By utilizing those very soft notes in between the accents, the drumming had this undercurrent bubbling along with the whole thing. Clayton Fillyau played ghost notes all over Live At The Apollo. He credits the New Orleans drummer.
