I would like to welcome those of you that found my blog following my second appearance on Around the Kit. It is always a thrill to appear on what I consider to be THE best drum talk show on the Internet. To share billing with Aaron Kennedy and Kenny Aronoff this time around was extraordinary and I thank Joe Gansas for inviting me. While you are here you will find Off Beat to feature a variety of content from exclusive interviews, to gear reviews, to music theory and historical studies. Over the last few years Off Beat has become one of the most popular drum blogs on the Internet thanks to visitors like you. I invite you to stick around, pull up a drum stool and browse. I highly recommend our exclusive interviews (linked above) that are the most popular feature on the site. There are more to come. Enjoy!
