Myron Grombacher played with Pat on virtually all of her hits.

A monster player.
Thanx for the name :)

Awesome List, particularly the ones I bolded!  The first song was the inspiration for my daughter's name...

For some of those bands it's hard not to list practically all of their tunes (like Open Letter To A Landland for In Living Colour)  

You could add Easy Lover by Phil Collins and (was it Jan Hammer, I forget...)  And finally, I love Rock N Roll by Joan Jett...  

Good call on the REM tunes mentioned earlier, but don't forget to add 7 Chinese Brothers...

OK, I'd better stop.

We have something other than drumming in common, then.  ;)

Philip Bailey. That was my one and only 12" single.

What a cool feel that tune has.

Phil can really lay down a groove when he wants to.
