I had an amazing time at the NAMM show this year. This was the best one yet. It was great to catch up with Rhett, Joe and the crew from Hendrix Drums , and I had an amazing time filming a segment for “Trending Today” on the Fox BusinessChannel. I also took some pics with photog extraordinaire Daniel Knighton and did a fun interview with Dan on Drum Talk TV I caught up with the crew from Drumeo, got a copy of an impressive new book by Alex Cohen, and saw my old friends Carras Paton and Maleny Morfen. I walked approximately 62 miles amidst a disorienting din of noise, passed Carmine Appice 76 times, and drank enough coffee to fill a small lake. I made so many new friends and took pics of a LOT of crazy and ground-breaking instruments which I will post soon. In the meantime, enjoy these few!
