Hi, Modern Drummer! I’m drummer Jamie Hodes, and I am beyond honored to contribute a blog here. I started drumming five years ago and I’m excited to share with you my official video appearance for Vintage Trouble’s song “Still And Always Will.”
Vintage Trouble chose an all-female band to portray them for this video. (Be sure to look for the band member cameo roles, as well.) Drummer Richard Danielson showed me the song a month before filming, and I rehearsed it daily. I watched him open for a private Kiss show at the Sunset HOB, and I videoed him drumming it at his home studio to study his style. It’s such a meaningful and groovy song that my own passion and personality took over whenever I drummed it.
We filmed for ten hours straight, and then I went right to my own band’s show right afterwards. What an amazing and fun experience. Thanks for letting me share it with all of you.
