South Park – Chef Aid

I had the unbelievable pleasure of working on the first South Park album, Chef Aid. Produced by Rick Rubin, I played drums in the DVDA band on six songs along with Matt Stone on bass, Trey Parker on Keyboards and vocals, Bruce Howell on guitar, and Isaac Hayes as "Chef".

The most memorable part of the session (for me) was when Rick Rubin told me to play more cymbal crashes in the middle of the crazy tom-tom fills on the Styx classic, Come Sail Away. Brilliant!

Here are a couple samples.

Cartman singing "Come Sail Away"
Chef singing "No Substitute"
Chef and Meatloaf singing "Tonight Is Right For Love"
