Re: Tommy Aldridge
I just picked up a dvd of Tommy's old hot licks videos.
It has "Rock drum soloing" and "Beyond the groove". It's got some nice ideas on double bass variants vs just 16th's.
He is an interesting guy and a power drummer that is from the Appice/Bonham mold. He clearly decribes stuff Bonham did to influence him. And the new drummers aren't as "extreme" in difference as one might assume. Tommy has a ton of licks and he knows how to describe them.
I have always loved his work. I also have his Whitesnake DVD... Tommy rocks!!!
