Musician
    He started as a jazz drummer but switched gears after recording 'She's Just My Style' for the pop group Gary Lewis and the Playboys.
    He is rarely seen or photographed without sunglasses on.
    He stated that while recording 'Knocking on Heaven's Door' with Bob Dylan, he actually cried while playing.
    He was the least known of The Traveling Wilbury.
    In 1992, he helped form the 'supergroup' Little Village with Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Nick Lowe, which recorded one album, was met with critic and commercial indifference, and disbanded the same year they formed.
    Working with three of the four former Beatles, he was jokingly referred to as the 'post Beatles fifth Beatle.'
    George and Ringo both cut albums that had liner notes lightheartedly stating you could join the 'Jim Keltner Fun Club' by sending a 'stamped undressed elephant.'
    In addition to the drums, he plays the ukulele.
    His R&B style of rock drumming has influenced several other drummers, including Chicago's Danny Seraphine and Toto's Jeff Porcaro.
    Gary Wright's 1976 hit 'Dream Weaver' was recorded using nothing but synthesizers and one drummer - Keltner.
    Showing he could jam with musicians beyond the '70s decade, he's worked with The Pretenders, Crowded House, Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow and Fiona Apple.
    He sat in with the London Metropolitan Orchestra to record 'An American Symphony' for the 1995 Richard Dreyfuss movie 'Mr. Holland's Opus.'
