SKF NOTE: One of my favorite drummers. Shelly shares some interesting opinions in this 1962 interview with Down Beat Associate Editor John Tynan.
For example: The real way to find out how a man plays is to find out the feelings of those who’ve payed with him over a long period. You can’t judge how a man, or a group, plays on one hearing, or in one night when he may not be feeling his best.
Shelly’s Leedy and Zildjian ads are from this same issue.
