Jim KeltnerJim Keltner

Pasadena, California


Musician

Best known for his session work on solo recordings by former Beatles George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr, Keltner’s amazing music career has seen him play drums for such disparate legends as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, The Rolling Stones, Gillian Welch, Pink Floyd, Fiona Apple, Roy Orbison, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, The Ramones, Neil Young, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams and many, many others. His style melds deceptively simple drumming patterns and a loose, casual feel with extraordinary precision, as heard on songs including “Jealous Guy” by John Lennon, “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright and “Josie” by Steely Dan.”
