On page 74 this month, UK funk drumming superstar – of Level 42, Gizmodrome and the PB Underground – presents his second of six guest lessons. Once again he breaks down one of PBUG’s grooves for you to learn on an exclusive video. We recommend you check out his DrumsAtTheFront book too. Inspiring!
Rhythm’s drum guru examines the influences on rock’s most famed drummers this month in our cover feature (p32). A busy month for Geoff, he’s also turned in reviews of new gear from Sonor, Evans and Natal, plus his usual Vintage column. And he still found time to chat with folk drum star Dave Mattacks!
Rhythm’s gear editor and top writer has had another busy month, including talking to The Streets’ Cassell The Beatmaker (page 46) and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy (page 60), as well as pulling all the gear together for our reviews section, which you will find nesting after page 83 this month!
