Floyd Sneed, Original Three Dog Night Drummer,
Inducted Into Classic Drummer Magazine Hall of Fame

Reno, NV, June 26, 2019: Classic Drummer Magazine, formerly Vintage Drummer Magazine, publishing for 13 years, announced the winners of the Classic Drummer Hall of Fame. Winners were chosen by popular vote via their website Each year, Classic Drummer presents an assortment of well-known, talented drummers for their audience to vote on. Floyd Sneed, among “12 of music’s most influential drummers” according to Classic Drummer Magazine, “provided the rhythmic foundation” for Three Dog Night between 1968 and 1974 and again from 1981 to 1984. 

Sneed enjoyed touring with Three Dog Night during the height of their success. With 21 hit singles, 11 Top Tens and 12 consecutive gold albums, Sneed and Three Dog Night played to large crowds and produced hit after hit between 1969 and 1975.

His drumming style, coined L’African, is a combination of Latin and African beat: As Micharel Allsup states in his online story, [Sneed has]: “…a groove so deep it's like it has walls shaped like a "V. The most "natural" player I've ever known. Straight from his "LaAfrican" perspective. Very Latin, but African and rock, too.”

The creativity Sneed exhibited for many years extends beyond the music. He has been working on a collection of visual art which can be seen at art shows across the country and at LeRue Press will release a book about his life in late 2019.
