Original drummer for Carl Perkins and after that Johnny Cash's drummer, W. S. Holland died.


Carl mentioned him in one of his songs by name.

Needles to say, I loved his style of drumming.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Damn shame. What a track record though -- ye gods. This has to be him on Carl Perkins' "Matchbox". Just love that snare pattern at the start of the solo! Rest in peace, sir.
