I did a little tweeting today from the Cascio Interstate Music clinic featuring Todd Sucherman (Styx, Brian Wilson), Hannah Ford (Bellevue Suite) and Pearl Drums Corps’ Raymond Massey. Think Drums and Perc Up Live picked up on it and were kind enough to share it with all of their followers and I hope everyone enjoyed the snippets and pics.
AND as promised, here’s a video snippet of Todd doing a seriously cool reinterpretation of Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression.” I hope you like it!
Finally made it to the Drum Pad in Palatine last Saturday, right before they were about to close. I wasn’t able to check out their drum room with all the kits BUT, I did have a few minutes to check out all of the sticks they carry – An entire wall to choose from!
Usually, I am a Vic Firth guy as far as sticks go, I love Regal Tip Whiskers and Bristle Sticks, but was never able to find a Regal Tip stick that I really loved….until now.
Thanks to the Drum Pad, I am now working out the Joey Waronker signature sticks (he’s a lefty too!) and the “Crossover” stick. I couldn’t find it on their website so I better go back there this weekend on my way to the Chicago Drum Show and stock up!
