Steve say's that I saw The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show and that was it for me. Ringo sealed the deal. I was interested in playing drums and wanted to one day be a drummer. Steve has recorded and played drums with some of the biggest star's on the planet just to give you an idea. He is constantly in demand and prefers to use a small 4 drum kit.
He was resident drummer on the David Letterman Show in America whic goes out Live on T.V. Steve's immpecable drumming can be heard on great song's by the likes of Patti Austin, Eric Clapton, The Brecker Brothers, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Donald Fagan and John Mellancamp. As well as his drumming skills Steve is also in big demand as a Producer.
I noticed a great piece of advice that Steve gave in an interview many years ago which he said . He has worked very hard in developing his own sound, it's taken years to develop. I used to spend a long time listening to records and playing along with them. I felt that I had to develop my own sound just like the drummers that I was listening to who were. Benny Benjamin, Al Jackson, Ringo Starr and Charlie Watts as they had this great sound. I always like the simplicity of their playing. Those drummers are the best kind of drummers. Please don't confuse simplicity with stupidity. Its alway's best to accompany the musicians that your working with and try and play for the song. If you would like to know more about the great Steve Jordan just simply Google his name.
