HEAR THE DRUMMER GET WICKED A 1969 riffby Clyde Stubblefield, James Brown's drummer, has been sampled in other recordings more than 1,400 times, more than any other snippet of sound. So said Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductee Hank Shocklee, right, who knows because he's done it. Shocklee - a member of the rap group Public Enemy's production team, the Bomb Squad - spoke in Ukrop Audi- torium during a panel discussion on sampling and copyright that included law professor and intellectual property expert Chris Cotropia. The talk was part of a spring semester course called The Voice of Hip Hop in America. Read more about the artist-in-resi- dence who co-taught the course with School of Professional and Continuing Studies professor Erik Nielson, left, on Page 11.
