Cozy Cole is a well known jazz drummer who had a #1 hit with the song Topsy part 2. The song was a drum solo, and one of the few drum solo recordings that ever made the popular Billboard top 100 charts. ...


The semi-professional circuit was next, with semi-pro outfit The Sorcerers, a vocal harmony pop band. The late nights and usual on-the-road exploits began to affect his education, and Powell left to take an office job in order to finance the purchase of his first set of Premier drums. The Sorcerers performed in the German club scene of the 1960s. Premier Percussion Limited is a Leicestershire-based manufacturer of drums and percussion instruments. ...


By 1968 the band had returned to England, basing themselves around Birmingham. Powell struck up friendships with fellow musicians like Robert Plant and John Bonham (both at the time unknowns in Listen), future Slade vocalist Noddy Holder, bassist Dave Pegg and a young guitarist called Tony Iommi. The Sorcerers now became Youngblood, and a series of singles were released in late 1968-69. The group then linked up with the Move bassist/singer Ace Kefford to form The Ace Kefford Stand.

On August 16, 1980, Rainbow headlined the first ever Monsters of Rock show at Castle Donington, England. Following the success of the event (which in turn followed the success of Rainbow's 1979 Down to Earth LP from which singles Since You Been Gone and All Night Long are taken), Powell left Rainbow along with vocalist Graham Bonnet to start work on Bonnet's new project called Graham Bonnet & the Hooligans, their most notable single being Night Games (1981).

Cozy Cole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (313 words)
Cozy Cole (October 19, 1909 – January 31, 1981) is a well known jazz drummer who had a #1 hit with the song "Topsy part 2".
Cozy Cole's 1958 hit record of Topsy II heightened recognition of his name and facilitated his popularity as the leader of a small combo that frequently played New York's Metropole and other clubs.
Cozy Cole was cited as an influence by such leading modern jazz drummers as Max Roach and Art Blakey, and by Philly Joe Jones, who studied formally, albeit briefly, with Cole, as Jones recalls in the chapter devoted to him in Art Taylor's Italic text Notes and Tones.
