SKF NOTE: Will Calhoun is among my favorite interviews. I am sorry it was never published. From reading my 1989 notes, this interview was meant to be published in Modern Drummer magazine‘s offshoot quarterly magazines — Modern Percussionist.
But before Will’s interview was published, Modern Percussionist ceased publication.
Will talks in this excerpt about two early influential teachers who encouraged him to add to his drumming a knowledge of keyboard and music theory.
