You’ve heard that iconic sound in so many of your favorite songs from the 1980’s, but how did we get that sound? You can think a studio mishap in 1979 when Genesis band member Phil Collins was playing the drums in the recording studio. The rest, they say, is history.
Phil Collins would go on to write one of the most famous songs to use gated reverb, and it was featured in the pilot episode of Miami Vice. All these years later, we all still play air drums to the punch!
