This great video just turned up in my stream.
I 100% agree and I love the way she explains what makes Richie's playing great and an essential part of each Beatles track. I must admit, I do love Richie's playing but as I am more into sounds (cue in many of McCartney's bass melodies, Harrison's awesome guitars paired with all those sonic adventures that make The Beatles so appealing) I never noticed how truly unique and recognizable
his drum tracks are. I really could name all songs she triggered before the full track set in.
She is amazing, a great player, a great teacher for music appreciation and clearly lives and breathes music with her friends and family.
