Drums and Drumming have changed enormously between rock'n'roll's emergence in the 1950s and the musically diverse scene of the 1990s. This informative, entertaining book tells for the first time the parallel stories of the growth of rock music and the development of the modern drum kit. Stunning colour photos reveal a unique collection of historic and contemporary drums from key makers like Ludwig in the US, Premier in England, Tama in Japan, and Sonor in Germany, including famous kits owned by Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, and many others. This book reveals how drummers used the established drum kit when rock'n'roll first arrived, and how in the decades that followed players from D. J. Fontana with Elvis Presley to Police sticksman Stewart Copeland combined existing playing techniques to expand rock drumming. The Drum Book is the perfect guide to the evolution of the rock drum kit and the development of the rock drummer, engagingly told in sharp text and illustrated with superb, detailed photographs.
