Wondering what the forum's thoughts are on this one? I was listening to the GYBR DVD-A and it again gave me an appreciation for Elton's band wand what their contribution was to his music! The band of Davey, Dee, Nigel and Ray Cooper more than supplemented Elton's music but they made major contributions as musicians in their own right! I've always thought Nigel one of the most underrated drummers in Rock music history! One of the things that i've admired about is drummer is for what he doesn't play along with what he does play! Dee I always thought didn't get enough appreciation as a bassist! None more evident than when he left the band! That left a huge void in the sound of the band! Listening to how he used his bass to punctuate what was going on in the song show's his skills. Davey was if anything versatile as he could play nearly ever stringed instrument there was to play. He was also a more than capable player! Ray, his history speaks for itself! What are your thoughts on the Elton John Band??
