Hello, MD readers! I am Davide Compagnoni from Torino, Italy and I’m here to present my new adventurous drum-triggering project KHOMPA, which was launched on the Ableton Live website a few weeks ago!
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.
Hey there, fellow Modern Drummer readers! I’m Ty Del Rose and am currently playing drums in Romantic Rebel. I’ve been very fortunate to have the opportunity to make dreams become realities as a member of this band, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
As a recording drummer that plays a variety of styles of music, there’s a process I tend to automatically go through when deciding what’s going to work best on a song I’m about to record.
Hello, MD readers! I’d like to share recent news of my drumming and musical activities.
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.
Hello MD, my name is Francesco Lucidi and I’m based in London. I am the drummer of the new game Guitar Hero Live, as well as a member of the alternative metal band Blackout Conspiracy.
Hello, Modern Drummerville! I’m Nate Walker, the drummer of Another Lost Year. We’re a rock band from Charlotte, NC and I’ve been in our lovely and always freshest of the fresh band van since April of 2013, originally as our FOH sound engineer/tour manager, then joining the dudes onstage in June 2014.
