Happy Birthday AYNSLEY DUNBAR (video)

#aynsleydunbar #rockfile
Aynsley Thomas Dunbar (born 10 January 1946) is an English drummer. He has worked with some of the top names in rock, including Nils Lofgren, Eric Burdon, John Mayall, Frank Zappa, Ian Hunter, Lou Reed, Jefferson Starship, Jeff Beck, David Bowie, Whitesnake, Sammy Hagar, Michael Schenker, UFO, Flo & Eddie and Journey. Dunbar is ranked by Rolling Stone as the twenty-seventh greatest drummer of all time.

Dunbar turned down both Jimmy Page's offer to form Led Zeppelin and Robert Fripp's to start King Crimson from out of the ashes of Giles, Giles & Fripp; quit the original Jeff Beck Group lineup over Jeff's notorious career-casualness (Dunbar wanted to play nightly, not monthly); lost Hendrix's coin flip to Mitch Mitchell to be the Experience drummer (shame on you, Jimi) before being aggressively courted by Frank Zappa to play the most complex arrangements in rock
