I recently interviewed Mike for TheParadiddler.com. It was a blast! He is so insightful, focused, and is genuinely interested in the betterment of the student. Plus, as has been duly noted, he is a phenomenal drummer. World-class, in my opinion.
Interview - Mike Johnston
I think many drum students are fortunate that Mike has chosen to share his skills instead of play in a band. His enthusiasm is infectious, and he's inspirational to boot. Have a listen to the interview (it's a podcast), and let us know what you think!
I thought the interview was great, very inspirational and interesting. Good Job! Well worth the time to listen to the entire interview.
