Mike Dolbear Runs for Charity!

I’m sure you all visit Mike’s site as often as I do considering he’s really one of the founding fathers of drumming sites (along Tiger Bill and our good friends at!  Mike is taking to the streets and raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust (UK) by running the  Halstead and Essex marathon on May 8, 2011. He’s also enlisted the support of Pink Floyd’s own Nick Mason, and will be giving away an autographed Paiste crash from Nick himself.  Every person who makes a donation will be entered to win the prize.

As of April 14, he’s raised £502, so please consider giving!
