Classic Rock Drummers

by Ken Micallef

Exploring technique, history, musicality and instrumental details, this book covers every aspect of the major drummers of the classic rock era: Keith Moon (The Who), Ian Paice (Deep Purple), Bill Ward (Black Sabbath), John Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Stewart Copeland (The Police) and Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac), among others. Each drummer's standout tracks are here in detail: choice of notes, how the parts strengthened and supported the music, and lasting influences on the drummers of today and music at large. The accompanying CD features sound samples of the styles of the profiled drummers. Includes historically accurate drum equipment setups.
