Also, here’s Jojo speaking at a TEDxZurich.
Check out Drummerworld’s Drum Solo Showdown! So, yeah… we all need to go home and practice!
It’s a special Saturday show today as Dave and Troy discuss the art of sitting in as well as unveil brand new ways you can help support Drummer Talk! In news, we discuss the 26th annual Guitar Center Drum-Off, Chad Channing’s plan for a Nirvana reunion, the Bonham memorial, and we pay tribute to the late Idris Muhammad.
We’re back from our Summer hiatus with a show on how to survive the “pro” audition! It’s kind of a sad news day as we explore why Chris Slade left AC/DC, talk about the passing of Tommy Ramone, and how both Tim Alexander and Dennis Chambers wound up in the hospital!
Dave and Prof. Troy talk about how to break into the music scene when moving to a new town. In news, we chat about along lost forgotten Beatle, how to best dispatch an Internet troll, who the next drum battle victim will be, and the departure of Dave Mackintosh from Dragonforce.
We challenge the stigma of recording to click tracks on today’s show. In news, we uncover the winner of The Greatest Drummer of All Time brackets, we check out the Ferrell/Smith drum battle, what’s new with Midnight Oil and The Monkees, we listen to a painful clip from Whiplash, and we wish a happy birthday to Mr. Bernard Purdie!
In the upcoming movie, Whiplash, J.K. Simmons plays a music teacher who pushes his drumming student, played by Miles Teller, to greatness.
I don’t know about you, but this clip hits a little too close to home for me! I’ve had some professors equally as punishing (minus the slapping).
A recent Forbes article sparks a discussion on the current state of studio and recording drummers on today’s show. In the news, we discuss a big artist announcement from Dixon drums and we listen to some drumming history!
Check out this 6-part interview from Meinl featuring the legendary drummers of funk, Clyde Stubblefield and Jabo Starks. If you want to see some living history, watch these now!
Meet Millicent, who, a great-grandmother at the age of 100, has started taking drum lessons in Leicester England!
“I’ve always wanted to bash a drum,” she said. “I’ve always admired the drums but never had a chance to play them. “I was a little bit nervous before playing but I really enjoyed my day.”
So what’s your excuse??
