Russ Kunkel - Chateau Beach
He's the most famous drummer that perhaps you've never heard of - oh but believe me, you have heard him. He's moved your heart, raised your pulse, and if you have listened to popular rock in the past four decades you've definitely tapped your toes to his steady beats.
He is Russ Kunkel: drummer, percussionist, composer, producer and friend of rock and roll royalty. Ever sing along to a James Taylor song? Good chance the beat belonged to Russ. The same holds true for countless hits from Joni MItchell, Carole King, Carly Simon, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jackson Browne, Linda Rondstadt, Bill Withers, Jimmy Buffett, Bob Dylan, B.B, King, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, and that's just scratching the surface of his recording and touring credits.
He is Russ Kunkel. Now you know.
