Lot’s going on the forum as always, here’s some highlights:
- Here’s an interesting interview with Herbie Hancock where he discusses playing with the great Wayne Shorter, as well as using Vinnie on his recent tours. Discussion on that here. (Thanks “baht habit”)
- There’s an interesting discussion on the pros and cons of starting in the NY scene with some informative comments from Mark Griffith. Worth a read if you’re thinking about moving to any new city to try and make a living playing music.
- There’s some great photos and YouTube links from a recent JoJo Mayer clinic. I’m really glad JoJo has emerged over the last few years, he deserves it!
- Prog Rock pioneers RUSH are the focus of a new Documentary called “Beyond the Lighted Stage”. Youtube links and discussion right here! (thanks Rafael Dolinski)
- Parts 2 and 3 of the House of Drumming “Flam Rolls” video lessons went up. Links and discussion right here.
- Looks like our own Peter Erskine was in Columbia, SC recently to do a clinic. Some HoD fans were there to get the obligatory colon pipe picture (nicely done guys). More pics and discussion on the clinic can be found here.
