I wanted to take the opportunity to start the first thread about Fran Merante, a new addition to the top 500 drummers list and featured educator under the teachers-clinicians-authors category.
Fran is a phenomenal drummer and teacher and moreover an incredible, humble guy. First class all the way. I have been a student of his for some time now and want to say congratulations Fran on your progress and endorsements (go Sonor), you have been as much of an inspiration to me as you have been a teacher. Good luck and God bless.
All you drummers out there, check Fran out if you havenít already. This is a link to his YouTube channel; I think youíll enjoy his tasty style. Itís very refreshing. Feedback is always good to hear.
