1984 STUDIO ROUNDTABLE PT 3 of 4

The next time the round table convened, it was a slightly different group: Keltner, Krampf, Colaiuta, Porcaro and Marotta. You'll hear the radio on in the background...it seems to me someone or two asked for some sports game to stay on, so that's annoying. Who knew 20 years later I would be sharing these with the public?

1984 STUDIO ROUNDTABLE PT 1of 4

In this first part of the 1984 L.A. Studio round table, the amazing drummers who convened at my apartment that day were Shelly Manne, Hal Blaine, Jim Keltner, Vinnie Colaiuta and Craig Krampf. Later that month we had part two at which Hal and Shelly couldn't make it, but Jeff Porcaro and Rick Marotta could. These conversations are priceless and being able to listen to them all these years later makes it an entirely different experience.

LA STUDIO DRUMMERS ROUNDTABLE 4 of 4

Well, this is the fourth and final part to the studio roundtable and listening to it never ceases to amaze me how privileged I was to be in that room with those guys! The crazy thing I realized is the day went long and each time I would ask if there was something else they wanted to talk about, they'd discover another topic...these guys didn't want to leave. They were not looking for an escape route, or an excuse to leave. They were having such a good time just being together and having an exchange about equipment, the Union, sessions...the good, bad and the ugly. So much fun and such a great memory in my life and now I get to share it with all of you.

LA STUDIO ROUNDTABLE PT 2 of 4

More incredible L.A. studio roundtable to hear...lots of good producer stories, the great insane Bee Gees story that Jeff tells and the very funny story of Jeff and Mike's art on their heads.

LA STUDIO DRUMMERS ROUNDTABLE PT 1 of 4

 For those who don't recall, it was Jeff Porcaro, whose contagious laugh will get you laughing, Vinnie Colaiuta, who has another great laugh to be sure, Jim Keltner, Harvey Mason, Mike Baird, Denny Fongheiser and Steve Schaeffer who arrived a little late to my home in Reseda, CA in 1990. Wait 'til you actually hear this...all the laughter and carrying on. I almost feel guilty that I got to be there. I am so happy to share this with you.
