Editorial Reviews

Rhythm Makers: Nashville's Drumming Legends in Their Own Words, is a fascinating and well-written book about five of Nashville's finest drummers, all of whom have had a big impact on Music City's recording scene. The interviews give great insight into the influences and motivation behind the successful and influential careers of these fine musicians. The background information in the book gives the interviews context and makes for informative and fun reading. As a bassist who has worked extensively with all five of these players, I can say that Rhythm Makers captures the heart, soul and personalities of these unique musicians, all of whom have had a big influence on the way music, and drums, are recorded in Nashville. The lives and stories of these players are inspiring and entertaining as well. I highly recommend this book to any fan of music, drumming and recording.
