Frankie Dunlop: Gene Krupa Arranges Slingerland Endorsement

SKF NOTE: Gene Krupa‘s kindness to Frankie Dunlop early in Frankie’s career is covered in my blog post, Frankie Dunlop: Gene Krupa’s Kindness to an Upcoming Drummer. In this audio excerpt you can hear Frankie telling the whole story. Frankie was playing a “rattletrap” set of drums with Maynard Ferguson’s big band. Krupa, who was on the same bill that day, liked Frankie’s playing, and offered Frankie a Slingerland drum endorsement – including a new set of drums annually.
