Default Re: Slim Jim Phantom

As a rockabilly drummer myself, Slim Jim became the defacto standard for all of us who play the style after the revival that took place in the 80's. I love his approach and his energy.

I may not be a great rock drummer (im okay), i have zero double bass skills, but one thing i can say is that I am one of the best rockabilly drummers in Las Vegas. I look up to guys like Slim Jim, DJ Fontana and WS Holland who defined the style.

I actually played a slim jim set up for a whole with a rockabilly band (except i did use hi-hats as well). It was a lot of fun and you learn to get creative when you only have a snare, a kick and a crash-ride.

This is me.

This is what I do.
