The family moved to Cairo, Egypt a few months after his birth, and Copeland spent his formative years in the Middle East attending Cairo American College. He started drum lessons at age twelve and by age thirteen he was playing drums for school dances. Later he moved to England and attended Millfield from 1967 to 1969. Copeland went to college in California, attending California Western University and UC Berkeley. He returned to England in 1975, playing drums for the progressive rock band Curved Air.

Drumming

Copeland is known for his precise, energetic, and creative rock drumming along with a reggae influenced style. His distinctive sound centers on a hard, high-pitched crack on a snare drum or rimshot, subtle hi-hat work with understated flourishes, while often playing only hi-hat with bass drum. Copeland's distinct use of a polyrhythmic approach solidifies his stance as an important drummer, subsequently influencing generations of drummers. His credit on Curved Air's Airborne album was "Heavy Artillery" rather than "drums." Reggae is a music genre developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. ... The hi-hat stand has changed little since its invention. ... Curved Air is a progressive rock group formed in 1970. ...


Copeland is also noted for his heavy emphasis on the groove as a complement to the song, rather than displays of technical prowess. He once drove this point home at a drum clinic: Copeland announced that he would show the audience something "that very few modern drummers can do," and proceeded to play a simple rock beat for two minutes. Nonetheless, his playing often incorporates spectacular fills and subtle inflections which greatly augment the groove. Compared to most of his 1980s contemporaries, Copeland's snare sound was very bright and cutting. Another novelty was his use of splash cymbals. He also is one of the few rock drummers using the traditional grip rather than the matched grip. A splash cymbal is a small cymbal used for an accent in a drum kit. ... Traditional grip is a technique used to hold drum sticks to play percussion instruments. ... Matched grip is a method of holding drum sticks and mallets to play percussion musical instruments in which each hand holds its stick in the same way. ...
