When it comes to studio drummers perhaps no one on the planet is as accomplished as famed LA
session drummer Russ Kunkel. His discography is one of the most extensive in popular music. Rock
steady, his beat has enhanced a musical who's who of 70s and 80s recording, from Dylan to Streisand
and, it seems, almost everyone in between. For many years it seemed every other major album featured
Kunkel and his partner in rhythm, Lee Sklar on bass.
A partial listing of artists he has drummed with or produced gives a flavor of his versatility and includes
Jackson Browne, Jimmy Buffett, J.J. Cale, Tracy Chapman, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Diamond, Bob
Dylan, Dan Fogelberg, Don Henley, Elton John, B.B
