Harmonium Drummer on Queen's Diamond Jubilee
« on: June 05, 2012, 01:18:18 am »
I saw this yesterday on the TV and immediately thought I recognised the drummer, who was supporting no less than Sir Paul McCartney for the jubilee finale. It turns out it's Abe Laboriel Jr who I believe drummed on Harmonium and was on briefly Pleased 2 Meet U.

How cool is that? I bet playing for Vanessa was the highlight of his career though, rather than a once in a lifetime royal performance ;)

I'm sure if you catch the highlights that will be probably playing all day on various news stations will have a video for anyone who is interested.

OMG! That's the dude that always drums for Sir Paul! I never put two and two together until now. Very cool! He is always very entertaining to watch when he drums.

Yup, Abe is on all of BNN, as well, including ATM.  Quite the studio guy, and amazing live drummer.  One of the many musicians I'd like to meet in my time.  He has played with SO many of my favorites.  Dude is the size of a sumo wrestler.
