He has also done Vinnie, Gregg Bissonette, Steve Jordan and Matt Cameron...maybe more. They were all fantastic. Of course drum videos too, including a focus on Jimmy Cobb when he passed away.This is the 2nd Rick B- drummer interviews, which I've found to be among the best, the other interview beingw/Bernard Purdie.
Wow! What a great interview! Steve Gadd is always pretty candid. But, he seemed even more enthusiastic to open up with Rick Beato!Only about 30 minutes in, but already it's already by far the most engaging interview I've ever seen with Gadd. As has been the case with others, he seems unusually comfortable with Beato—but in this case, so far, perhaps a bit less because he respects Beato's depth of musical knowledge, and more because they're both from Rochester and have so many common touchstones. (And Beato's depth of musical knowledge.)
thanks, s1212z, for pointing out those other drummer interviews by Rick, which I'll be viewing next. Rick does the best job of interviewing drummers, by a non-drummer, from what I've watched so far.He has also done Vinnie, Gregg Bissonette, Steve Jordan and Matt Cameron...maybe more. They were all fantastic. Of course drum videos too, including a focus on Jimmy Cobb when he passed away.
I found it fascinating to watch Sting slowly come out of his shell.LOVE Beato's interviews. The Gadd one is incredible. Check out his chats wit Pat Metheny and Robert DeLeo, two other amazing conversations. I even found the one with Sting to be terrific.
