Tony Thunder Smith - Solarguitars honors this legendary Master of Rhythm

By Published February 17, 2022
  Tony is known for his melodic approach to rhythm, a part of what makes his style so distinct.
 He consistently brings his energy and precision to a wide range of musical genres. Showing a true drummer’s sensibility, he can easily pinpoint what a song may call for and approach any genre with his wide range of experience - from Rock with pioneers Lou Reed and Jeff Beck, to Latin with brothers Carlos and Jorge Santana, to fusion with the Jan Hammer Group that he co- founded, to Jazz with legendary guitarist John McLaughlin, and to Pop with the French icon Serge Gainsbourg, just to mention a few.  Tony is featured on The Mind Electric Vinyl, CD and now Digital Networks. Listen and watch here. Babylon and Final Frontier!
