    Yes, and his groove blows my mind. Mayer has a great band, his BV's/backing guitar player is also amazing.

    Anyone know if he played for Richard Thompson a few years back?

    Just a small point here:
    He probably thinks he plays WITH Mayer and Doyle, rather than "for."

    (Sorry, I have a fondness in my heart for great drummers, and think they're just as important, or more so, than guitar players.)

    I have also seen him here in Austin at the local jazz club, The Elephant Room, playing with different bands.

    That's David Ryan Harris. He fronted a band in the 90's called 'Follow for Now' and he also played with Dionne Farris. He had a band called 'Brand New Immortals' that put out a great record in 2002. DRH is super talented. I remember seeing Follow for Now open for Fishbone...

    JJ is a great drummer and really shines with Mayer...

    I had the FfN album on cassette! Man... that was a while back. I had no idea that was DRH's old gig. I'll have to try and find that again.
