A YEAR AFTER HIS DEATH, STUBBLEFIELD

IS REMEMBERED

Madison Magazine
It didn’t take long for Clyde Stubblefield to start hating his greatest creation. The 20-second drum break, which he first played in a Cincinnati studio near the end of an exhausting 1969 tour with James Brown, was by his own admission a product of boredom and frustration. “It was something I just put together to pass time away,” he told “The Trap Set,” a Los Angeles-based podcast about drummers, in 2016. It was an afterthought. A bit of half-hearted noodling.
