For all you samplers and sample users, “Stubblefield, a drummer for James Brown who created one of the most widely sampled drum breaks ever, died Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017, at age 73.”

“Funky drummer” is a world-wide favorite sample! “Rolling Stone magazine said it was sampled on over 1,000 songs and served as the backbeat for countless hip-hop tracks.”
