Have you ever watched a live performance of "Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group?
It has some amazing solos, including the drum duet between Edgar Winter and Chuck Ruff.
Last Friday, October 14, Ruff died in San Francisco after battling a long illness, he was 60. Ruff played with Ronnie Montrose and Bill Church in Sawbuck during the late sixties before joining the Edgar Winter Group. Along with "Frankenstein," Ruff also plays drums on "Free Ride." In 1977 he joined Sammy Hagar's band and played on the "Street Machine" and "Danger Zone" albums both released in 1979. Ruff drums on the song "Bad Reputation" used in the movie, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."
