Drummer Speaks

January 15, 2010

On drumming:

Make it heavy and steady. Stay in the groove, then move.

On performing:

You don’t need to know much about music to appreciate a song or a performance. It’s always the connection that’s important, the reaction, if the work left in the audience something worthwhile.

In the end, this is what matters: Did the performance, even for a moment, catch a collective heaving from the people? Make them sing along, tap their feet, or bob their head? Did it make them feel that they’re fucking rock stars too?
