Life and career

Russ Kunkel Russ Kunkel Drummer Cafe

Kunkel was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In the 1970s, Kunkel worked so frequently with bassist Leland Sklar, guitarist Danny Kortchmar, and keyboardist Craig Doerge that they eventually became known as "The Section" and recorded three albums under that name between 1972 and 1977.

Equipment

Russ Kunkel Russ Kunkel Biography amp History AllMusic

Kunkel endorses DW drums, Paiste cymbals, Evans drumheads and Pro-Mark sticks. He has previously used Yamaha Drums, Premier drums, Pearl Drums and Remo drumheads, but prior to switching to Paiste in 1983, it is likely that he used Zildjian cymbals up to that point. In addition to drums, Kunkel has been credited with playing tambourine, shaker, cabasa, congas, timbales, snare drum, castanets, wood block, hi-hats, cardboard box, cowbell, cymbals, marimba, bongos, bells, timpani, cajon and percussion.
