Here's a guy I just found on you tube. He's absolutely amazing. I had a CD Glen Sobel played on by guitarist Jennifer Batten. A killer record with some awe inspiring drum parts but I hadn't heard much else that Glen had played on. I typed his name into you tube and found this:
This solo seems to have it all. Amazing chops and parts, masterful double bass ideas, great hand technique, musical, bad ass linear grooves towards the end, and he does this trippy cymbal choke sort of lick.
But what interested me most was that I followed the link to his myspace page and found out he's been touring with Elliott Yamin from American Idol. It's like a pop/R&B gig. Also he's played in Sixx AM with Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue, a full on hard rock gig. I saw different genres he's played in and I wonder why I haven't heard more about this guy. And furthermore, why doesn't he have a page at Drummerworld? He should!
