“Wipeout”, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”, “Toad”, “Soul Sacrifice”– these recordings became the cornerstones of rock drumming and, thanks to Hudson Music, they’re a number of the many legendary performances contained on the new DVD release, “Classic Rock Drum Solos”
Hosted by rock drumming legend and historian, Carmine Appice, “Classic Rock Drum Solos” is a comprehensive selection of rock drum solos; tracing the development of the phenomenon with vintage footage of pioneers from the 1940’s and 50’s, rare film from the golden age of the 60’s and awe-inspiring video of the pyrotechnic players of the 70’s and 80’s
“Before I ever touched a pair of drumsticks or knew what a snare drum was once, I saw ‘The Gene Krupa Story’,” recalls brand new drumming icon, Neil Peart
“Krupa’s showmanship and rhythmic grace shined a spotlight on the drums and the drum solo and I remember that thinking, ‘I wanna do that!'” “I used to be totally influenced by Gene Krupa¦ and Buddy Wealthy,” says Vanilla Fudge’s Carmine Appice, who was once also inspired by the drum solos of Louie Bellson, Max Roach, Joe Morello, Sonny Payne, Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, Jack DeJohnette and Tony Williams
