Re: Keith Carlock
I and about 75 others had the pleasure of attending a drum clinic at Sweetwater in Fort Wayne, Indiana this past Wednesday featuring Keith. Along with displays of his formidable chops, he had some great advice for the many youngsters (under 18) in attendance. In essence, he told them that woodshedding is great and practice a necessity but make it a priority to PLAY with others, particularly those who are better than you and can challenge you to be a better player. However you do it - form a garage band, play in high school band / drumline - just do it and keep learning.
This is wonderful advice from a very talented musician, thanks Keith!
