Jim Gordon 1945-2023

Mar 18, 2023,16:18 PM

Jim Gordon, drummer in the legendary Wrecking Crew and a “friend “ in Delaney and Bonnie and Friends before being plucked from that band by Eric Clapton for Derek and the Dominoes, has passed away.
He was a brilliant drummer who played for everyone who recorded in LA; but suffered from schizophrenia and actually spent the last 40 years in prison for murdering his mother during a psychotic episode.

Jim Gordon was one of the most talented musicians he ever played with.

Don't know which is the more amazing: the number of artists Gordon played with according to his Wiki entry . . .

. . . or that I can't recall ever hearing about him before seeing your thread. 🤷‍♂️

Now that surprises me.
