Who didn't he play for? He appeared on nearly every vinyl record you own.
So sad when the Derek & The Dominos drummer who co-wrote "Layla" listened to the voices that told him to kill his mother.

Perhaps the greatest session drummer in history, he was known for flying in with a pair of drum sticks and when seated behind the kit, instinctively knew exactly what to do. He saved much money on recording studio costs.
