“Fast” Eddie Hoh may not be a name that you know, but he is certainly someone that you have heard. The drums on “Daydream Believer” by The Monkees were played by Hoh. In fact, Eddie Hoh played drums on a whole bunch of songs that would be familiar to Monkees fans. “Pleasant Valley Sunday”, “Circle Sky”, “Goin’ Down”, “Star Collector”, “Salesman”, “What Am I Doin’ Hangin’ Round”, “Words”, “She Hangs Out”, “Tapioca Tundra” and “Zor & Zam”.  When Hoh moved to California, he connected with The Modern Folk Quartet. The newly named Modern Folk QUINTET included Henry Diltz and Chip Douglas. Douglas would go on to produce Monkees albums and brought Eddie Hoh into the fold. If you listen to sixties pop music, you have heard “Fast” Eddie’s grooves.  Donovan, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Stephen Stills, Gram Parsons, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and Tim Buckley all used him. He played in The Mamas & The Papas backing band at The Monterey Pop Festival and can be seen in the film “Monterey Pop” that came out in 2002.  Eddie Hoh was 71.
