Drum Solo Week: Take 2
It’s another round of David Letterman’s Drum Solo Week! We have a whole new respect for the man, who is dedicating a second week of his show to “giving the drummer some.”
Ever since the first Drum Solo week in June featuring everyone from Sheila E to Neil Peart, drum aficionados have been clamoring for more — and we got our wish! Returning to Letterman this week are a slew of great drummers — here’s the schedule:
Last night we saw the 26-year-old drumming prodigy Tony Royster Jr., who began playing at the age of 3, performed on the GRAMMY® Awards at the age of 15 and has worked with artists such as the LATE SHOW’s Paul Shaffer and Jay-Z…
Tonight is progressive drummer Gavin Harrison, who has worked with artists Iggy Pop, Lisa Stansfield and King Crimson.
Wednesday, Aug. 24, Stewart Copeland, best known as drummer for the legendary GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band, the Police, and also an acclaimed composer and solo artist in his own right, takes to the Ed Sullivan Theater stage.
Our “coda” of the week, Thursday, Aug. 25 is a performance by renowned drummer Dennis Chambers, who has worked with artists John Scofield, Maceo Parker, Santana and Parliament/Funkadelic.
