J-Zone Interviews Legendary Drummer, Mike Clark

Mike-ClarkCheck out my RBMA interview with jazz-funk drummer Mike Clark HERE.

Mike is the man behind “God Made Me Funky,” one of the most sampled drum breaks of all time, and the Oakland funk sound. Also discussed: Herbie Hancock, the Headhunters, playing as the white guy in the Black Panthers’ house band, Brand X, why he hated the Beatles in the 60s, Betty Davis and more. I took a lesson from him once – he’s the real deal with a great story. Enjoy!
