Another pic from back in the day. If you don't know John Weathers, you need to check him out. He's the unsung hero of the Prog band Gentle Giant. These guys really did set a Prog precedent. They were on the scene early and this guys drum parts were really fantastic. Talk about navigating some twisted meter and crazy arrangements. I just listened to the song Cogs In Cogs and I'm still knocked out by it. Really, if you think you know Prog but you don't know Gentle Giant, you need to rethink.
