i've been in london over the weekend attending the london drum show where we had a small exhibit booth. benny greb got invited too to perform at the show on our behalf.
a memorable scene occoured to me there. sometimes at those kind of events benny wants me to do his soundcheck so he can listen to the sound of his set outfront and make adjustments on the mixing board. so again this time he asked me to soundcheck. i sat down and started playing toms, snare, kick, etc. etc. you all know what i'm talking about. at the end then, of course, here comes the "and now the whole set" part.
as soon as benny said to play the whole set, the door opens and in comes no other than dave weckl himself, sitting down in the first row watching me "play the whole set". dave performed at the event too and he wanted to check out benny's show. so here i am playing the whole set and not trying to mess it all up. i almost shit my pants to say the least. i think i did pretty good though.
later that evening i ran into dave again at the hotel, and here's what he said to me there: "you sounded good man". that really made my day.
check out some of the fotos i took at the show, and thanks to all of you who came and had a good time with us in london.
