Drummer Peter Erskine is an important part of the music
scene since the early seventies. The list of recordings he
contributed to is impressive not to say overwhelming. Not
only it's a long one, no it's a list of sometimes landmark
music of that same period. Talking about lists. That of
musicians and bands he collaborated with is of similar
length and importance.
I am not going to dive deeper into this. Read for
yourself. Those who believed this to be a framed story of
Erskine's time with Weather Report (1978-1982) don't get
what they expected. But personnaly I'm even more satisfied
with the outcome. He shares stories and events, often not
chronologic. A must read for everyone serious
about drumming, music and life. Yes life, I've you think
that success is just around the corner for someone that
talented then think again.
This book will go up on my bookshelf next to
Bill Milkowski's "Jaco". I think mr.
Erskine would approve.
