COUNTRY: United States
GROUP: JAMES BROWN
He’s played with Maceo Parker and Pee Wee Ellis, but gettin’ down and funky with the Godfather of Soul has been percussionist Spike Nealy’s gig since 1990.
From Mr. Neally himself: “Whenever I have to power-drive James Brown’s funk, the 22″ Hand Hammered Power Bell Ride is my #1 choice. When James says ‘Put it on the One,’ my #1 choice for dropping the One is my 16” HHX Evolution O-Zone.
