ProfileIn Memory of Bruce Gary ...
Perhaps best known for his work with the platinum selling band The Knack and the unforgettable Drum Beat of "My Sharona" which was Bruce's invention. However, this two-time Grammy nominee had a successful career apart from The Knack, as a performer, producer and recording artist. His body of work crossed all musical styles and genres.
Bruce recorded with The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger, Cream's Jack Bruce, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Albert Collins, Dr. John, The Ventures, Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Love with Arthur Lee, Yoko Ono and many others.
Bruce toured with Albert Collins (1968-72), Dr. John (1976), Love (1976-78), Jack Bruce (1974-'88), The Knack ('78-'96), Bob Dylan (1981), The Ventures in Japan (1996), and Robby Krieger Band (1977-'91).
