Considering Anton Fig is a perennial favorite for best late night drummer honors, it’s no surprise that the Late Show decided to give the drummer some love. All this week, The Late Show with David Letterman will be featuring drum solos form some of the biggest names in drumming – Fig, Peart, Sheila E, and Haynes. The 4 night drumming fiesta begins tonight, June 6 and goes through until Thursday!
It’s the season finale of Drummer Talk Season 6, and on this week’s show, Dave’s gives a very in-depth look at a complete snare drum makeover – from batter head, to reso head, to snare strands, to strand cords. Also we, of course, talk more Dream Theater, new Avenge Sevenfold, Memphis Drum Shop’s Chris Coleman clinic recap, the Summer of contest continues, and much more! Show notes after the break!
The Summer of contests continues with this one being offered from Rhythm Magazine and Sabian Cymbals.
