My No. 1: Jerry Fuchs! He died too early to get here...

by Katrin
(Berlin, Germany)



He only became a well kept secret: Gerhard "Jerry" Fuchs of Maserati !!! And a few other projects. If that poor chap hadn't have died in an absurd accident in 2009 he might have become one of the best KNOWN drummers around. Just listen to Maserati's "Show me the season", esp. the live version, you can find some stuff on youtube and you might understand me.
