Legendary drummer Michael Shrieve has 69 candles on his birthday cake today. Michael first came to fame when he played drums for Santana.
Many people still think that Michael was only 17 years old when he played Woodstock. If you do the math, you will see that he had turned 20 a little over a month before Woodstock.
Michael is still very active and through the years has recorded with many artists. In 1984, he played on Mick Jagger’s She’s the Boss album. When Jagger, Nile Rodgers and Shrieve were mixing the album at The Power Station (now Avatar Studios) in New York City, Jaco Pastorius invited Shrieve for a recording session downstairs. That recording remains unreleased.
Do you have a favorite song Michael played on?
Happy Birthday Michael!!!
