There are plenty of in­flu­en­tial drum­mers out there, and then there are the ab­so­lute leg­ends of the in­stru­ment. The kind of player whose in­flu­ence is cited by drum­mers from all styles and eras of mu­sic. Steve Gadd is the lat­ter, and should need very lit­tle in­tro­duc­tion. So we jumped at the chance to put the king of groove on our cover this month. As well as our in­ter­view – where Steve talks about theSteve Gadd Band, his ses­sion ca­reer, and why he’ll never stop search­ing for new sounds – we’ve also brought you seven lessons on how to em­u­late Steve’s play­ing for your­self, with some of his most dis­tinc­tive tech­niques ex­plained both in video and no­ta­tion.

Also this month: we speak toAlice in Chains’ Sean Kin­ney, Jason McGerr of Death Cab For Cutie, and An­ton Fig sits down for The Rhythm In­ter­view. As al­ways, we’re bring­ing you killer play­a­long tracks – this is­sue its’ the S’tones clas­sic ‘Honky Tonk Women’, and a dou­ble-kick work­out on Deep Pur­ple’s ‘Fire­ball’. Fi­nally, we’ve hunted down the fresh­est gear out there from the likes ofMeinl, Spaun, Dream and much more! See you next time.
