Inside the mythic Studio A exhibit at the Motown Museum, you can see an actual Gibson 335 guitar and wah-wah pedal Dennis Coffey would use in recording “Cloud Nine,” “Just My Imagination,” and countless other R&B classics. It’s positioned in the exact location where he performed his tracks.

As for me, I have enjoyed performing with many wonderful artists including Benny Golson, Roy Ayers, Tim Ries, (music director for Rolling Stones), Larry Coryell, Rick Margitza, Chaka Kahn, Roy Hargrove, Speech of Arrested Development, Randy Brecker, and many more. I am also honored to say that I was Aretha Franklin’s last drummer. I toured with her until her last performance at the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 2017
