When lumping all the great drummers in together minus genre, etc., this guy, Cozy was one of the best. Same with Buddy Miles. With Buddy Rich & Gene Krupa, these four are some of my all-time favorites.
He was brilliant and deserved to have a number one hit with "Dance With The Devil" and "Na Na Na" which sounds a lot like AC/DC. Dance With The Devil was eventually ripped off by Right Said Fred for "I'm Too Sexy" in 1991, but happily he did top the charts playing on the song "The Stonk" by Hale & Pace along with Brian May, Tommy Iommi, Roger Taylor, and Rowan Atkinson.
Can anyone tell me what happened to the "B" side track of the single "Dance with the Devil"? The track was called "And then there was Skin". I have never heard it anywhere else and the disc has got lost in the mists of time!
Hey Guys check out the nice videos on the Black Sabbath page! It's a pity that he did so much for Rock and Roll and doesn't get the due respect...
