I interviewed Jim Gordon in the early 1980s for Modern Drummer. I have audio excerpts from our interview on my blog, Life Beyond the Cymbals, for anyone interested. Here's one excerpt: https://scottkfish.com/2017/09/23/jim-gordon-what-made-you-want-to-be-a-pro-musician/

A go to interview for me!! Learned lots from your strong work sir! Was interesting hearing about his formative years and the training he went through. A little more insight into how on earth someone could be that good!
