About Billy Cobham
Widely acknowledged as the greatest fusion drummer of all time, Cobham came to prominence in the late ’60s and early ’70s playing on seminal recordings by Miles Davis and then the Mahavishnu Orchestra. A prolific band leader with more than 30 albums under his name, Cobham’s influence stretches well beyond the world of jazz. Billy Cobham’s Guide To Stress Free Drumming is the culmination of his life’s work.
About Gary Husband
Gary Husband is one of a rare breed of musicians in that his expression is divided equally in his capacity as a drummer and a keyboardist of international repute. His classical roots, his quest and development in the improvisational, jazz and jazz/fusion areas – not to mention his tenure in the pop, rock, funk and blues circuits – are all evident inside Gary’s distinct and far- reaching musical personality.
About Dom Famularo
Dom Famularo has been traveling the globe preaching the gospel of drumming for over 40 years. Dom’s career has been built upon his unique skills as a drummer, educator, author and motivational speaker.
