SKF NOTE: “This material is excerpted from Scott K Fish’s forthcoming book, The History of Rock Drumming.” That’s what it says in the lead paragraph to this Percussive Notes piece from December 1994.
Lacking a publisher for my “History,” I must have, as they say, reprioritized it. My idea was to flesh out and expand the research material I used to write a rock drumming history published in five parts in Modern Drummer magazine.
My friend and former MD colleague, Rick Mattingly, offered me the opportunity to write this two-part series for the Percussive Arts Society’s magazine. You can look at the full size pages by clicking on the pictures posted here.
When I run across Part 1 I will be sure to post it.
