Welcome to The Drum Gods: 25 Legendary Talents Who Changed Drumming. This is a very special collector’s-edition publication, brought to you by the editors of Modern Drummer, the world’s #1 drumming magazine.
The reason behind The Drum Gods is simple: to spotlight some of the greatest drummers ever to pick up sticks and to offer insight into their playing style. Maybe you’ve heard of a certain player, but aren’t aware of his history. What are his best recordings, his important concepts, or his contributions to drumming? Or maybe you’re a fan of a famous drummer and would like to have some valuable playing tips from him. With The Drum Gods, you’ll learn all of this and more.
Besides biographical info, classic photos, and style & analysis sections, also included in Drum Gods are tips, quotes, and lessons from the artists themselves. Much of this information has been culled from the extensive archives of Modern Drummer magazine, the most extensive resource of drumming info anywhere.
