Comparing Jazz players to Rock players is like comparing apples and oranges, and it’s not on the menu for this trip to the buffet. Anyway, if you were hoping for a rinse and repeat list containing Neil Peart, Tommy Lee, and John Bonham, you came to the wrong place. This is one for the underdogs.
Mountain is one of the most underappreciated Hard Rock bands of all time. The most overlooked member of this underappreciated group is Corky Laing. Corky turned his time with Mountain into a music career spanning five decades. In that time, he has been in other influential hard rock bands (Bruce, West & Laing), cult Indie bands (Cork), making thematic music, and being a music executive. Corky is a hard-working and dynamic person who has truly done it all.
