From the incredible album “Brother To Brother” (1978)
It’s great to see and hear Mark Craney playing this live. to be honest, I don’t care for the live arrangements of “Appaloosa” that Gino likes. I prefer the album version. Gino doesn’t consult with me LOL
From the album, “Civilized Evil” (1980).
From the album, “Imaginary Voyage”. Great drumming from Mark as always he has such an incredible touch and groove. RIP Mark.
Great footage of Mark Craney playing with Jethro Tull.
Awesome live rendition of “Brother To Brother”, drummer Mark Craney absolutely knocking it out of the park. Awesome!
Mark Craney was a professional drummer who played with bands and performers such as Gino Vannelli, Jethro Tull, Jean Luc Ponty, Tower Of Power, Tommy Bolin and many many others.
I was particularly influenced in my drumming by his work with Gino Vannelli and Jean Luc Ponty.
I will be posting some video and audio of Mark later today.
Rest In Peace Mark you are terribly missed.
RIP Mark Craney. You are missed.

The special things in life are free
I’ve always known and understood
There are people I belong to for good”
