Music Books [Issue #24]
Various: The Drummer: 100 Years of Rhythmic Power and Invention
By Adam Budofsky

In just over 170 pages, Adam Budofsky’s volume provides an excellent overview of drumming in the past century. Packed with excellent live and studio photos and sprinkled with amusing or insightful quips from the masters, the work begins with the “founding fathers” of drumming (Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, Elvin Jones). Highlighting the pioneering technical prowess and electrifying showmanship, the evolution then quickly unfolds into the likes of Keith Moon and John Bonham, who added blistering power to the finesse of the early masters.

One of the exemplary elements of the book is that it does not solely cover household names. Incredible drummers such as Billy Higgins, Fred Below, and Earl Palmer are rightly given the same (if not more) coverage as Mitch Mitchell, Ringo Starr, and Neil Peart. The tome also covers modern marvels from Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins to The Flaming Lips’ Steven Drozd.

While there exists some explanation of technique, the book is not designed for the purpose of instruction. Instead, The Drummer gives a beautiful look at the history or the instruments’ great icons in every genre: rock, pop, jazz, R&B, metal, progressive, alternative, and beyond.
