Mel Lewis – Best Beat of a Lifetime


SKF NOTE: This 1968 Gretsch drum ad with Mel Lewis — and other great drummers in the series — need to be kept in the public eye, IMO. As I’ve said before, pre-internet, these ads gave young drummers one our few chances to see and study our favorite drummers’ drumset set-ups. That was especially true of aspiring drummers in rural areas where well known drummers visited rarely, if at all.
