Shattered, 1978 live. Four outrageous bashes on the crash cymbal. Nothing like it. Just launches the song into a different realm.

Ive always been partial to his intro on Get off my cloud. It’s perfect.

Start me up. The snare on beat 1 still sounds surprising. I have played with lots of drummers, and they never played that intro right. Is physically wrong, rock and roll snares must be on times 2 and 4, but that's the magic. Only Charlie.

Charlie's best song opening drum riffs - great Charlie drumming isn't the topic, it's songs that open with drums

Flip The Switch is it for me.

Extremely influential for the 4 year old me who became a semi professional drummer. (Ive been playing in multiple bands and on most continents since im 13. Im not getting paid enough to call myself "a professional drummer")
