Drummer 'is the most important element of a band'
Kevin Barnes, the singer and songwriter in Of Montreal, has spoken about the importance of a drummer to a group's success.
Talking to the Independent about who would make up his fantasy band, Barnes nominated Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt to go behind the drum kit.
He said he felt Wyatt would make a "good centrepiece" to the group, as well as be open-minded about trying out various musical experiments.
"In a lot of ways I think the drummer is the most important element in the band because everybody is depending on him to lock down the groove and to establish the rhythm," added Barnes.
He said he would also like to see Stevie Wonder playing the piano and Marvin Gaye on vocals in his perfect group.
Of Montreal are due to play in the UK and Ireland next month, playing dates in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester and London as part of a wider European tour.
