Loads of Zildjian Players Play a Part in Grammy’s

Interesting story on Zildjian.com about this year’s Grammy’s. They list all the acts that were nominated whose drummers play Zildjian cymbals. Pretty big list. It’s interesting to see how many bands have drummers that use Zildjian. A couple years ago, I saw a story about how most of the Grammy winners have drummers who use Paiste. I wonder if the overall trend is going back to Zildjian or if it’s just a coincidence. Your thoughts?


One thing about the list… Zildjian incorrectly listed JJ Johnson as the drummer for John Mayer’s track “Say.” The liner notes for the album (“Continuum”) credit Steve Jordan with drums on that track (and the whole album).
