Default SKF Blog Audio: Artimus Pyle: Copying Other Drummers' Licks is the Hardest

SKF NOTE: In this excerpt from Artimus Pyle's June 23, 1982 interview for Modern Drummer, Artimus talks about how hard it was having to learn Bob Burns's Lynyrd Skynyrd drum parts note for note. But it was also helpful.

The photo of Artimus seated behind his yellow drumset was taken the day of this interview.

Great interview. It's funny he mentions struggling with learning others' drum parts note for note, because on the Skynyrd songs we cover I can never hit every lick he does!

Very few drummers get how difficult that is. My longevity with Al has depended almost completely on my ability to successfully duplicate parts. :)

I was very surprised when Artimus said he was required to play even the drum fills exactly the same as the record -- otherwise it really messed up the other band members.
