“Helter Skelter”

In part three of our web exclusive interview, MD contributor Cam Patterson speaks with Abe Laboriel Jr. about how he balanced gigs with Sting and McCartney and what it was like playing the Concert For New York. Drum tech Paul Davies talks drumheads and hardware, and Abe ends by discussing how he doesn’t think of himself as a big-name drummer name, but rather he’s just there to do his job and “make others shine.”
