Well, he did play with Emerson & Lake and he did cover VDGG's 'Theme One' on his album 'Over the Top'

So yeah, why not!

I'm prepared to forgive him for Whitesnake and MSG - indeed I didn't mind the former

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

No No No

 

Again a suggestion for breeching the dyke, it'll be Whitesnake next.

 

Heavy drummer, who by reputation couldn't do a drum roll. I enjoyed his Over The Top album when it was first released, enough to seek out the CD compilation with samples from his three solo albums, but there is some cringeworthy tunes on the CD as well as handful of great jazz blues rock pieces.

Heavy skin pounder in the mould of Bonham! If we are to include drummer's solo carreer than we should start with Ainsley Dunbar (Zappa and Journey) Too bad his solo album were too bluesish for inclusion!

Cozy Powell was also a member of Rainbow, which were prog metal of sorts. So add him!!!

No

He has a no no vote for me..I don't know the story behing Emmerson & Lake choosing him for ELPowel but it was more than a chance he needed the work.On thing i do know is he was the worse thing to happen to the above..I'll give the guy a break regarding his tragic road accident but he no prog man.

About the only thing he did solowise IMO that was progressive was his Tilt album with Jeff Beck and David Sancious. Great album with a lot of fusion in it.

His first album "over the top" is far more prog than "tilt"

His solo stuff has definite prog credentials although he was like a fish out of water with ELP.But I would rather remember him for the solo albums he made in the late seventies/early eighties which are very good and would not be out of place in the archives.

So the third album where he covers 'The 666 Squadron' and 'The Big Country' and features an orchestra isn't really prog then??

I had a tape of it once.I'm not sure it is prog really.He also did a stint in a band called 'Phenomena' who were a lame prog band (but prog though)

The best band Cozy Powell ever played in was Bedlam who also included ex-Procol Harum guitarist, David Ball.  They only put out one album and I was lucky enough to catch them warm up for Black Sabbath in 1973.  This was the first concert I ever attended and Bedlam was the very first band live band I ever witnessed.  Ah, sentiment.

Gary Moore/Jacck Bruce/Don Airey among others. When I unearth my tape I can fill in more details

Why did Cozy write that album? If you dont like it thats your Issue, blaming the drummer though? I dont think so.
