Rhythm - - NEWS - Chris Burke, Editor Chris.Burke@fu­turenet.com

As Blink-182 re­turn with a new al­bum, iconic punk rock drum­mer Travis Barker re­turns to the cover of Rhythm. We spoke to him about the record­ing of that al­bum, his plans orf his sec­ond solo al­bum and how, though his ap­proach and set-up haven’t changed that much since the be­gin­ning of Blink, he’s kept his drum­ming fresh and stayed at the top of his game.Page 32!

Travis is of course known as an in­no­va­tor be­hind the kit, but this month we also get the story be­hind one of the most in­no­va­tive drum com­pa­nies of re­cent years – SJC. Find out just how the ul­tra-hip US cus­tom drum com­pany has made a busi­ness out of lov­ing drums from page 48!

This is­sue you’ll also find an in­ter­view with New Or­leans jazz and funk starS­tan­ton Moore, and I met Dire Straits drum leg­end and top bloke Pick­Withers to talk about his amaz­ing ca­reer, cul­mi­nat­ing in the first four clas­sic al­bums by the blues-rock su­per­stars. Stu Warm­ing­ton con­tin­ues his round-the-world tour of march­ing bands, this month stop­ping off in Hol­land to meet the drum­mers from the Adest Mu­sica drum corps. We have a First Look at a pair of beau­ti­ful new DW kits, and full hands-on ex­pert re­views of gear from Sonor, LP, Remo and UFIP. Then we have full video play­a­longs of tracks by Royal Blood andTony Wil­liams, and all your favourite lessons!

We’re get­ting pretty ex­cited now for the Lon­don Drum Show, which takes place 11-12 Novem­ber at Olympia. Got your tick­ets yet? The line-up is get­ting big­ger and bet­ter by the minute with the ad­di­tion ofAaron Spears, Anika Nilles and more – read all the news on page 6, and you can get your tick­ets to theUK’s big­gest and best drum show from www.lon­don­drumshow.com.
