It is still one big tragic loss. I loved his drumming style and the songs he wrote. Also, you can't mention Eddie Rubin without mentioning Johnny Rivers, these two were the greatest duo in music history.

I really like his music and style. He is a real artist

A true drumming legend! No other drummer can match Rubin's talent and ability to gather such big crowds of people to hear live drumming. Ever since he opened the Whisky a Go Go in 1964 with Johnny Rivers music and nightlife in the LA area and Sunset strip was never the same again!
