On February 18, 2017, Clyde Stubblefield died aged 73. He was a drummer best known for his work with James Brown. His recordings including “Cold Sweat”, “I Got The Feelin’, “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud”, “Ain’t It Funky Now”, “Mother Popcorn”, “Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved” and “Sex Machine”, are considered to be the standards for funk drumming. Stubblefield became one of the most sampled drummers in the modern music, and the 20-second drum break, a snippet of a Stubblefield solo on James Brown’s 1970 single “Funky Drummer,” marked his biggest impact on music.
