We reported in 2011 on the upcoming Dennis Wilson biopic starring Aaron Eckhart. Well, sadly, it looks like that project has been canned permanently.
Vince Guaraldi’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtrack is easy my most favorite of Christmas recordings. It’s the first and last holiday record I listen to every year. The tracks are pure brilliance and the drumming sublime. With Vince garnering the lion’s share of attention for the songs on the record (and rightfully so), it’s not often you hear from drummer, Jerry Granelli.
Little did I know that the last time Granelli played those tunes were for the recording of the soundtrack itself!
“I think I was a little too serious and immature, but this had a life of its own. It crept up on me,” he said.
We celebrate episode #200 today on Drummer Talk, the Internet’s longest running drumming podcast! It’s chock full of memorable clips, laughs, and reflections on the past 8 years! You’ll also hear from some old, familiar faces (voices) and get some behind-the-scenes trivia on how the show is put together.
Grab a cup of coffee and settle in with this massive, 3 hour milestone show!
This is utterly despicable. The marching band of Annandale HS in Virginia was told to get off of the field as the coaches brought their team out of halftime early.
“GET THE DAMN BAND OFF THE FIELD,” a parent of one of the football players said at the AHS Marching Atoms “mid show” of their Senior Night performance on Nov. 8.
It should be noted that the Annandale football team has only won 1 game, whereas the marching band won Virginia State champions.
It’s an interactive show this week as Dave shows you how to wrap (re-wrap) yarn mallets! In the news, we talk about Bill Ward’s solo album, the end of the Mike Portnoy/Dream Theater saga, more Cheap Trick legal snarls, Questlove and the Roots’ move to the Tonight Show, and what Pink Floyd thinks about Spotify?
