Hello MD readers! My name is Peter Landi and I’m the drummer for Marco With Love. This is my second guest appearance for the Modern Drummer website and I am excited to tell you about my setup….
How’s it going out there all my skin beating buddies? It’s Mike Goldberg (AKA Metal) checking in from my home base at IMP Studios. Recently, I have been working with Mountain’s Leslie West on his latest solo album Soundcheck, which was released on November 20, 2015. This makes my third consecutive record with the “King of Tone,” expanding from recording engineer to co-producer, engineer, mixer, and drummer….
Hi, I’m Brandon Olander and a snare drummer for the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps. My passion for drum corps started when I was ten and happened upon a YouTube video of the BD drumline. I begged my parents for sticks and a drum pad, and soon began practicing for five or six hours each day, teaching myself rudiments and learning how to follow along to drum corps snarelines. I attended my first BD audition at twelve, dreaming that one day I could become a member. This dream came true when, at sixteen, I earned a contract to the Blue Devils.
Hi! My name is Katie Herron and I am the drummer in the glam punk ’n’ roll band, StarBenders. I was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama, affectionately known as the River City. The conservative nature of the South birthed a fire of rebellion and the need for individuality….
Hi MD! For the past months we’ve played shows in all sorts of places across America. Large theatres. Small clubs. Sports bars. Board rooms. Radio stations. You name it, we’ve played it. But nothing beats Friday June 12, 2015 in Orlando, FL opening for the biggest rock ’n’ roll band in the world, the Rolling Stones, at the Citrus Bowl Stadium with a sold-out, 70,000 people show….
Hi MD, I was fourteen when I sat behind a drumkit for the first time, and I had a mission. It wasn’t to play like my drum heroes—frankly, I didn’t have any yet. But I had songs, and I was out-writing my playing abilities. I had to change that….
This list is in no particular order, and they all should be number one because they are all important….
What’s up, Modern Drummer readers? My name is Sean Heenan and I play drums for the band Attila. I’m super stoked to be given the chance to write this “On the Beat” for Modern Drummer, so I’d like to start by giving the magazine and Amy, our publicist, a huge thanks for making this happen!
Hi, I’m Tamara and I’ve been stuck to my drums for the past nine to ten years. Let me tell you how it all started; my journey to becoming a drummer is one of a kind. My story is actually comparable to one of those love stories, when you fall of in love unexpectedly….
It’s the fall of 2015. Mayday Parade’s fifth album, Black Lines, has just dropped and we’re about to be back on the road again. It’s been one hell of a ride so far. We started this band exactly ten years ago and never thought we would get this far, yet here we are….
