Bobby Graham (1940 - 2009) was an English session drummer, as well as composer, arranger and record producer. Some consider him to be the greatest drummer the UK has ever produced, John Bonham notwithstanding. Graham was a part of the British elite session team made up of artists such as Big Jim Sullivan, Vic Flick and Jimmy Page, and turned down Brian Epstein's offer to join the Beatles' drummer, which of course allowed Ringo Star the opportunity.
