Adam Deitch's (Lettuce, Break Science, John Scofield) Top 5 Influences

Oct 20, 2021 | 0 comments

This week’s guest is Adam Deitch. Adam is the Grammy-nominated drummer for the bands Lettuce and Break Science. He’s also played and / or collaborated with legends such as John Scofield, 50 Cent, Average White Band, DJ Quik, Matisyahu and many, many more. His power and intention behind the kit is one of the most inspiring things to watch and he seems to reinvent his career every few years by just choosing what project to focus on in that moment…because he trusts his instincts. The thru line, however, has always been his collaboration with Lettuce. Anyways, Adam has been on a...

THE Dom Famularo's Top 5 Influences

Oct 14, 2021 | 0 comments

  This week’s guest is the Global Drumming Ambassador himself, Mr. Dom Famularo. I gush over Dom’s impact on my playing at the top of this episode because Dom is an incredible drummer / educator / author / motivational speaker / and lifter-upper-of-vibes based on Long Island. He’s an authority (to say the least!) and it was an honor to have him on the show. In this episode, Dom breaks down the top 5 influences that shaped his playing style. I could also just rename this the Steve Gadd appreciation episode, but Dom has a very thoughtful and unique reason...

The 5 Essential Charlie Watts Recordings

Oct 05, 2021 | 0 comments

  Today, we have Mike Edison (author of the book “Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters”) on the show to discuss the quintessential Charlie Watts recordings. Obviously, this is subjective, but thanks to Mike’s EXTENSIVE knowledge of both Charlie’s career and style, I knew he would nail it. Many people, including myself, take The Rolling Stones for granted and have yet to truly dive deep into the humble greatness that was Charlie Watts.  I also must give a BIG FAT shoutout to our mutual friend Bart van der Zee of Drum Historypodcast for introducing me to Mike. And please go check...

Joe Seiders' (The New Pornographers) Top 5 Influences

Sep 30, 2021 | 0 comments

  Today’s guest is Mr. Joe Seiders of The New Pornographers…which I consider a supergroup of songwriters including A.C. Newman, Neko Case, Dan Bejar and, well...the rest of the band; they're all amazing. I’ve known Joe for a few years now after first meeting him backstage at a New Pornographers show, but I’ve always been a big fan of his drumming. As is the case with most of my favorite drummers, he’s a songwriter’s drummer…you know…the best kind?  His advice on recording and writing drum parts is sprinkled all throughout this conversation pertaining to the top 5 influences that shaped his playing style....

Carson Gant's (@oneupdrumvids) Top 5 Influences

Sep 30, 2021 | 0 comments

  This week’s episode is nothing but good vibes. We’ve got Carson Gant aka @oneupdrumvids on the show. Carson’s ability to recreate classic loops and drum breaks on the acoustic kit is unmatched, but not so much in the vein of Jojo Mayer, Adam Betts, or Richard Spaven (which I know I’ve described in a similar way), Carson focused more on the slower, hip-hop style grooves that might SEEM a little more approachable in comparison to the drummers I just mentioned, but ohhhhh no. Believe me, there are a lot of nuances within a groove that are only exposed at a slower...
