Default Re: Tommy Igoe

I had the chance to meet Tommy at PASIC and also a dinner with him and the Hudson-Music friends Paul and Rob.

First surprise: This guy is so tall - much taller than you imagine from the pics. He's the tallest drummer I know.....

Second surprise: He's really fast.....and I mean it.

I stood just beside him during his clinic. He played a BossaNova/Samba in a uptempo - with straight single Hi-Hat - and he hold it not only few seconds, just some minutes - very impressive.

His vocabulary is tremendous - and really, you have to stand beside him to believe: so clean and strong - i was very impressed - and this after seeing twenty other drummers the same day.

And also the nicest guy possible.....

Bernhard
