Steve Gadd was born on April 9, 1945 in Rochester, New York.

Steve’s uncle was a drummer in the army and encouraged him to learn to play drums at the age of seven. He studied music at Eastman College in Rochester, played in a wind band, and played in a club with Chick Corea and Chuck Mangione in the evening.
After graduating from college, he served in the military and spent three years as a drummer in the military band. Later Steve started to make his own music as a studio musician, and collaborated with Chick Corea, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, Bob James, Nancy Wilson, Joe Cocker and others. In the 1970s and 1980s, Steve and Chick Corea recorded five albums in which Al DiMeola also collaborated. He also recorded and toured with Jim Hall.
In the 1990s, Steve became one of the most mature and skilled drummers in modern times and the chief drummer for Eric Clapton.
The author attended Steve Gadd’s performance in Hong Kong in 2018: at that time he performed with Michael Blicher and Dan Hemmer; it was very exciting and unforgettable.
