Default Re: Jan Hammer

Great thread idea, Polly! I forgot about this but it was once a very topical thing for my drummer friends back in the day. We used to wonder what the heck the deal was with Hammer being so good on the drums. This was before the internet age so researching stuff like this wasn't so easy, so we just came to the conclusion that the guy was a musical natural on multiple instruments. But yeah, I'd be curious to find out what the deal was with Hammer on the drums. Did he study them seriously? I sure hope he did, because it's kind of scary to think he could play like he did on that Beck stuff without doing any formal work.
