Hi Everyone -
Just a quick update on Keith Carlock & his website's gear giveaway...
He is about to go out on tour with Steely Dan (w/Michael McDonald), and was voted #2 Best All-Around in Modern Drummers Readers Poll... not too shabby!
The giveaway on his website is getting a lot of attention (thanks Bernhard for featuring it on the front of the site!) -
We've just added ten copies of the Modern Drummer Fest 2005 DVD to the prize collection...
There are interviews in various magazines inluding a cover story in Japan's RHYTHM & DRUMS, which contains 10+ pages of interviews, commentary, transcription and photos.
France's BATTEUR Magazine also ran a cover story on Keith. BATTEUR includes a bonus audio and video CD of Keith's 14-minute drum solo from the Toronto Drum Festival, which you can view on Keith's website's video page.
This month's DRUMMER (UK ) has a feature interview with Keith, "Mississippi To Manhattan," which discusses Keith's beginnings, his recording and touring with Sting, Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, Wayne Krantz, Leni Stern and Oz Noy.
Also in print is last month's Modern Drummer with a feature on Donald Fagen commenting on thirty years of Steely Dan drummers. This month's issue has an "Ask the Pro" feature, and next month's issue will include an Artist Update piece with Keith.
In the coming months, Keith will be interviewed in the following publications:
- Rhythm Magazine (UK)
- Recording Magazine (USA)
- Bateristas Al Sur (Argentina)
- Traps Magazine (USA) [September's inaugural issue of a new drum magazine from the folks at DRUM!]
Anyway, thanks for reading and for the interest!
