Steve Jordan: Listen to Every Type of Music

[Steve] Jordan‘s advice for young drummers: “The best thing is to be wide open, totally objective. Listen to every type of music. In other words, when you start listening to one thing and getting into just one thing and one thing only, it’s going to automatically limit what you can do. And that’s why a lot of people don’t do a lot of things. So many people are limited. That’s why you see the same guys on all the records. Those are the most versatile guys.”
