The Greatest Drummers of All Time

Cindy Blackman

Growing up studying jazz didn’t prepare Cindy Blackman for the rock and roll industry. Cindy was picked up by Lenny Kravitz, who was notorious for his fairly pocketed songs. Lenny’s songs are largely built around a consistent beat and a consistent riff that repeats itself multiple times. Cindy was hired to stay in the pocket, but add subtle flavor and fills when applicable. Cindy has built up a lifetime reputation of being one of the greatest drummers to ever live, AND she’s married to Carlos Santana.
