This month’s experts
Rhythm’s CD Editor does a fantastic job every month of pulling together our Drum Lessons, and breaking down a brace of tracks for our playalong videos. This month he gets to grips with AC/DC’s ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’ and Soundgarden’s ‘Fresh Tendrils’, one of Matt Cameron’s best drum tracks!
One of Rhythm’s top writers, this issue we sent Rich out into the world to gather as many tributes to Buddy Rich as he could from the great and the good of drumming. Find out whose solid gold thoughts and recollections he collected in our All-Star Buddy Rich 100th Birthday Tribute from page 32!
A few weeks ago we sent top drum reviewer Tom to Germany to take a look at and get hands-on with some very special new DW kits at European distributors GEWA’s Nuremberg HQ. This month he gives his verdict on DW’s gorgeous Purpleheart wood kit. Find out what he thought on page 84!
