Default Re: Steve Smith

I have admired Steve and have followed his career since the Jean-Luc days, from Journey to now.

I finally had a chance to attend one of his clinics two weeks ago. I arrived a little over an hour early so i had a chance to watch him set up his kit and talk drums with him. It was an absolute thrill!

The clinic was excellent and he spent a great deal of time discussing his interest in Indian rythms as well as demonstrating them. He hung around after the clinic and talked more drums and signed a drumhead for me (proudly framed in my drum room).

Steve is a master musician, class act, and one hell of a nice person.
Max Roach did it, Elvin Jones did it, but Roy Haynes didit and didit and didit.
