Default John Macaluso

John is probably the drummer who has inspired me the most over the last two or three years. When I heard the first Ark album, I was blown away by his licks; it was like someone dropped the best fusion and classic metal drummers into a blender, set it on puree, and then sat the result down behind a drum set. That made me go out and look for as much other Macaluso stuff as I could find, and I haven't been disappointed yet. John's recent effort fronting The Union Underground, "The Radio Waves Goodbye," has some of the best progressive rock drumming I've heard in years. Double bass, monster fills, cool linear grooves and odd-time beats; it's all there. The 7/8 intro to the "Soul In Your Mind" has, in short order, become one of my favorite grooves of all time.

I just discovered John Macaluso while listening to Michael Romeo's solo album War of the Worlds. This guy is a monster. Unbelievable chops. Prog metal I know is not everyone's thing, but it sure shows off what this guy can do. WOW! http://www.johnmacaluso.com/

I knew Johnny Mac back from when we both worked with Bobby Hambel from Biohazard.

Cool guy. Good player

I remember him from his Yngwie Malmsteen days, then i was lucky enough to meet him in Liverpool a while back.
I ordered his book from him, and it has some killer stuff in it. He's finishing up another book (or dvd) now, and I'll be picking that up when it's available.
