Now, that man had some voice!
I missed this particular post last night. I might have this one as well; I have to look through my vinyl. (In fact, all of the Tim Buckley albums I have are on vinyl).

I remember very clearly reading in the New York Daily News the day Tim Buckley died. That was decades ago.
Had Jeff Buckley lived, he would be turning 49 in November.
And Tim, if he were still alive, would be 68, I believe.

I know enough of his music and his style that I can buy it pretty much sound unheard...I just haven't delved into his catalog any more than what I've had for twenty years or so.
I recommend Jeff, also- I can send you his debut album if you're interested (which was the only one released in his lifetime). He is not a carbon copy of his father, but stylistically in a lot of places, I can definitely hear Tim in Jeff.

Agree. Copeland is unique.
I am actually a very big fan of The Police. Have been for many years. Synchronicity is one of my favorite albums ever, but I am a fan of all their work.
But back to Copeland. One of his biggest fans is apparently Neil. Neil mentions being a fan of The Police in Beyond the Lighted Stage. Neil mentions Copeland in one of his books. Neil has been a guest at The Sacred Groove.
I had the pleasure of seeing The Police live twice. The first time was at the Conspiracy of Hope show at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago way back in 1986. It was a charity drive sort of thing and you had to enter a lottery to get tickets. I remember the show well because, when The Police played Invisible Sun, Bono sang with them. Keep in mind that was when U2 was still very legit and that song is about The Troubles. That was very cool.
The second time was during the recent reunion tour here in San Antonio. Copeland did a percussion solo that was out of this world. All sorts of crazy things with symbols and triangles and things suspended by ropes. That, I think, is the difference between Copeland and Peart. Peart is a straight forward rock drummer of mad skills. Copeland is more a percussionist.

It wasn't really a solo in the traditional rock sense. He actually stepped away from the kit and played in a bunch of items hanging from rags and ropes and such. It was very different and very cool.
