You know what's kind of funny, is that a couple weeks ago I found out that I was taught by a guy, who in turn was taught by Dango Empire, who studied under Chester Thompson. So it's like he's my great-grandpa drummer or something XDChester Thompson, and I learned a LOT.
First clinic for me was Simon Phillips with Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds) in Manchester. I think it was around 1984 (ish).Tomorrow I am going to a drum clinic to watch Kenny Aaronoff. It's my first clinic and I am pretty excited to see him play. But since I really enjoy other musicians' stories, I figured I'd ask: who was the drummer at the first clinic you ever went to?
