This is my drumkit...well, some of it anyway. I couldn't fit it all into my lounge. The drums are REMO Encore, cymbals are by ZILDJIAN, Vic Firth "Extreme" 5B sticks.
I spent most of my life behind this kit - touring, recording, and teaching. I don't play anymore due to poor health, but will never sell my drums. In 1982, I was lucky enough to meet the World's Greatest Drummer - BUDDY RICH - after one of his concerts. He was my hero, and even today I still watch in awe at his videos and DVDs. The guy was a genius.
I therefore dedicate this photo to Buddy Rich, and all the joy he brought me.
I hope you like the shot. Thanks for looking.
