Hello! Back in February of 2014, Modern Drummer was the first publication to write about my new DW drums, my new recording studio, and my ongoing ambition of producing a solo album.
Hello MD and greetings to all my fellow drummers! My name is Ralph Alexander and I play drums and bass in a rock duo called The Dose. My buddy Indio (guitar/vocals) and I wanted to form a two-piece band that could sonically fill a room without sacrificing any of the low end by omitting a bass player. We also didn’t want to use any backing tracks. So, I came up with the idea of playing both drums and bass—at the same time.
Hello, all. This is Stevie “the Boy” Fury, drummer of the rock ’n roll group Jeremy and the Harlequins. I’m here today to talk to you a little about my band’s recording process and my drum setup.

Hello, On the Beat readers. Steve Fidyk here. You may be familiar with the column Jazz Drummers Workshop that I have been contributing to for the past five years in Modern Drummer magazine.

I’m blogging today to inform the MD family of readers of my latest solo CD effort, Allied Forces.

Hi MD! My name is Ivar Loe Bjoernstad and I’d like to share a few words about some things I consider important.
Hello MD! Bobby Rydell? Yeah, that’s me! I was that teen idol guy in the early ’60s who sang all those pop hits like “Wild One,” “Volare,” and “Forget Him.” You know, the one with the huge pompadour haircut who was always on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, and then got to kiss Ann-Margret on-screen before he punched out Conrad Birdie in the film version of the hit musical Bye Bye Birdie.
