Hey i was wondering, this movie here: http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/j...welltrio1.html

Is it buy(able) ? Or is it as titled only from John's private collection?

He's mine too. It's all about the pocket! I like where he plays just behind the beat. Great pocket!!

I was just channel surfing and stopped on HBO's Justin Timberlake special. I see him jamming with the drummer and I'm like I know that groove...sure enough JB beatin' the crap out them. Great showman, Incredible drummer!

I watched that whole show on HBO the other night. Incredible live performance by the whole group. I kept joking with my wife though that if I got tickets on the opposite side of the stage from the drummer I'd be really upset... I actually downloaded that album after seeing that show. It's incredibly addictive and several of the songs got stuck in my head for days on end. I guess that's a good thing from the record company's perspective.

Oh, and for the record Prince is a musical genius and Justin Timberlake is definately a legitimate artist/performer in my opinion.

Below are the dates for John's upcoming clinic tour sponsored by Zildjian. If you are serious about your craft - irrespective of the type of music you play - and if you are available you should really see this guy play - more funk/groove than you woud have thought possible.

I'll be at the clinic in Seminole and I trsut I will see Gruntersdad there as well. Anyone else?

Hi

I have known about John Blackwell for a while, but only recently got to know his work / style of drumming, and i am a really big fan, i checked out the clips on this site of him, and he does have a good style.

I was wondering, does anyone know what his Sabian setup was there in the videos before he switched to Zildjian. I can see that one crash cymbal is a HHX, but no idea what it is nor size.

So if anyone knows what cymbals he had and what seizes that would be really great.

Thanks

Nathan

Wanted to update you on John's plans. As many of you know, John has just released his first solo project (www.johnblackwellproject.com) available through iTunes and www.cdbaby.com

He will also be playing various dates around the country in the Summer and Fall with Frankie Beverley and Maze!

Go check out the Cd and check out John on the road if you get the chance!

Paul
