Stevie Wonder plays a drum solo

In this grainy, black-and-white clip, we see a ¬†young Stevie Wonder howling away as his band funks the hell out. Then…

He is led up, past the piano, towards the drum set. For a moment the scene looks like the times when James Brown had his entourage treat him like a funk-stricken invalid for laughs. But Stevie is really teetering up there! He barely makes it to the drum set, and then, after his drummer sets him up, points him in the right directions like Stevie Wonder is a deadly and poorly-aimed weapon, the drum solo starts. And it’s a doozie. Check it out – a drum solo from one of the most talented men on Earth.
