Best Drum podcast in iTunes
If you are a drummer, or just interested in drumming or drummers, this podcast cannot be beaten (sorry for that pun). Joe's affable style and sensitive interview-technique make these audios a really entertaining and enlightening listen when you are on a long journey to a gig. Thanks, Joe - I now look forward to my journeys up the M3.
Joe and Stuart talk about how good the drumming was on rock recordings of the early seventies when drummers had more freedom to express themselves. Whilst that's a good point, the problem in those days for aspiring drummers, compared to today, was that information such as you here in these podcasts was in short supply. For an hour of entertaining education it doesn't get better than this.
