Comment: Watching the instructional DVD he left behind. 'Corbit Van Brauer' still amazes me. The rack toms NEVER stop moving. "Creature Stomp" kicks butt and takes names. I found my fulcrum points again after 10 years! What a graceful, elegant, MONSTROSITY of a player.
He was always humble about his God Given "Groove" and the world could learn a lesson from his example. Self-effacing stuff like....:
(i.e. "My Time Sucks" -Modern Drummer).
Could I speak with him, I'd look him
in the eyes and firmly but gently say, "...no; you have what God gave you--an impeccable sense of rhythm and 'groove' and 'soul'...it's there whether you choose to think it or not!"

He was a fan, first. Always deferred to Purdie---or Bonham or Gadd-or Keltner. Never speaking too highly of himself, I suppose he chose to let the equipment do the talking, and did it EVER! Few have matched his elegance on Hat...but he could make that thing bark at ya if he desired. Pocket? Even fewer have matched the deep pockets. Happy birthday Jeff. You may not have TRULY known the power in your playing; but God used it to encourage even a keyboard playin' fool like me. That legacy remains, and always will. That gaping hole you left? Is still huge. MAYBE someday, somebody will step through it and a little more of your legacy will rub off! Groove on....

Comment: In Memorian to my best Drummer Jeff.

This is my Tribute to Jeff

Jeff du und dein Groove war einzigartig auf der Welt. Du warst einer meiner Vorbilder 1977 als ich mit den Drumming begann.

Seit 1976 bin ich euer Fan und werde es immer bleiben.

Comment: sono un chitarrista ed il mio idolo "Luke", ma ho sempre ammirato il tuo modo di suonare, era inconfondibile, e ogni volta che riascolto i tuoi dischi mi viene un brivido dentro che non so spiegare.Ho pianto molto quando te ne sei andato, era come se sene fosse andato un mio fratello,ora mio figio studia la batteria e ti ha preso come esempio,e segue molto "Simon", io sono molto contento di questo e ne vado fiero. il 18/3/2006 ero con tutta la mia famiglia al concerto di Milano dei Toto, abbiamo fatto 700 Km ma ne valsa la pena. CIao sarai sempre nel mio cuore.
