The Buddy Rich Alumni All-Star Big Band
Just got a nice note from Cathy Rich and Gregg Potter featured artists of THE BUDDY RICH ALL-STAR ALUMNI BIG BAND with special guests Peter Erskine and Nick Rich. They're touring Japan right now and these shots are from The Blue Note in Tokyo. We checked out the Blue Note press release but it was in Japanese and ours is a little rusty right now. Gregg will be forwarding updates as the tour progresses so stand by.
The Classic Drummer Hall of Fame
makes a whirlwind trip to LA
to say thanks to Ringo from our readers.
It took a call to the Grammy Museum, a thumbs up from Ringo's "people" and a few thousand frequent flier miles. The crowning moment in 30-hour round trip adventure from Atlanta to LA, was Classic Drummer's Steve Bryant getting to ask Ringo a question. Steve's still smiling.

Gibralter Model 8707 Flat Base Hi-Hat Stand
by Billy Jeansonne
The Gibraltar 8707 flat base hi hat stand is very practical and functions as well as any other hi hat I have used. Light in weight (about 7 pounds), it utilizes a direct pull system that feels very smooth and is very quite because of the type of linkage system used.
