RIP one of the best,,,,

The long career of the British drummer John Marshall, who has died aged 82, spanned a broad range of music. In one of his first recording sessions he was part of the anonymous band backing the Jamaican singer Millie Small on the song My Boy Lollipop, which reached No 2 on the UK and US charts in 1964. Later he would become recognised for his membership of several leading groups fusing jazz with rock, including Nucleus, Centipede and particularly Soft Machine, with whom his tenure spanned half a century.

Thanks for posting, he was a wonderful drummer. The obituary also mentioned my drum teacher Trevor Tomkins who was another British jazz drummer who, like Marshall, started to give the Americans serious competition in the 60s and 70s.
