We’re back for part 2 of our 3-part series exploring tuning! Today, we go in-depth with the toms. In news, both Kings of Lean and Aerosmith have to cancel shows due to drummer health issues, Dave Grohl terrifies us with his Foo Fighters teasers, and Slipknot still wont make with the new drummer’s name!
Man, what is it about drummer’s health lately? First Tim Alexander, then Nathan Followill, and now it seems Aerosmith is having to cancel shows due to drummer, Joey Kramer’s health.
Unconfirmed sources with the band have indicated that Kramer, 64, is slated for heart surgery. No word on how many shows are expected to be canceled.
The Rock N Roll life really is hard on the body. Get well, Joey!
One of the most influential jazz recordings of all time, Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” off the the 1959 record, Time Out features one of the most influential drum solos of all time. There’s a reason Time Out remains to top selling jazz album of all time.
Performed by the amazing Joe Morello, the solo on “Take Five” is a thesis on theme and variation and motivic development.
Although the band has a new track out from their new record, Slipknot frontman, Corey Taylor, has gone on record to let fans know that they’ll have to wait to learn the record’s title and the new drummer’s identity (rumor has it it’s son of Max Weinberg, Jay Weinberg).
“…when the time is right, we will give you the answers that you need, and that’s the way it is.”
Sad news for Kings of Leon fans. Following a bus accident in which drummer, Nathan Followill received injuries, the band has had to postpone their upcoming show dates. No news on how many shows this affects.
“The band was en route to their hotel after their show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of their tour bus, causing the bus to stop short, injuring Nathan Followill,”
If you’re sad they’ll be missing some shows, you can watch this and know they’ll be back soon!
P.S. This is a joke video called a “shred” where bands get overdubbed with awful performances.
In a recent interview with KNAC of LA, Morgan Rose discusses life on the road, the acoustic shows, what else is on his plate, and what’s in store for Sevendust once this tour winds down.
We talked about maybe getting together and doing a record in the first quarter of the year and just shelving it. We’re kinda in a mode right now so the writing process is usually pretty quick for us. I think that we will be out next year.
Congrats, Blue Devils, on your 2014 DCI World Championship!
New record out in November. Gah! Get this guy a throat lozenge!!
Also, here’s Jojo speaking at a TEDxZurich.
