The Century Project: 100 Years of American Music From Behind the Drums (1865-1965)
Daniel Glass’s The Century Project takes you on a journey through 100 years of music history and reveals a side of the drums never before seen. Using vintage drums, rare photos and stellar performances, Daniel traces the drum set from its inception at the end of the Civil War (1865) to the dawn of the British Invasion (1965), showing how the drums evolved hand-in-hand with American pop music.

    I’ve noticed a lot of people begging “PLEASE!” to win these drums. Even giving a sad story or reason why they are more deserving of them. Does that really work? If it does I am totally begging to win. But if this is truly a drawing then it’s not going to work. Sorry to sound so cynical folks but all who enter are just as deserving as you or me. And it’s a material thing that none of us need but desire. Keep it real and good luck to ALL who enter.
