Default Re: Billy Martin

One of the most inspiring interviews I've ever read was Modern Drummer's interview with Martin back a few years ago. Martin was saying how effective playing very quietly can be and how music can still be very intense without necessarily needing a lot of volume. Many musicians already know this, but it was refreshing to hear someone say it, especially a drummer.

Plus, I love the fact that he was playing a beat up old "budget kit." Here' s a guy who realizes that it isn't necessary to pay a fortune on the "best drums" out there, if you can find your own great sound on a low line kit.
