Epicenter Of Drumming, Lunch With Lang, And The Winner Is Tokio Hotel
lunch with lang - meinl drum tv video podcast
gustav schäfer and tokio hotel winning the mtv latino awards for best song of the year

with the superdrumming festival happening there, the small city of gmunden in lovely austria will be the epicenter of the drumming world this coming weekend. celebrating their 15th anniversary, gerhard jessl and his team at the drumhouse have put together a stunning line-up. this is the place to be for us this weekend and i am really looking forward to going there tomorrow morning. some of our top guys will be playing, like thomas lang (who will also be the mc), benny greb, wolfgang haffner (both solo and with his band "acoustic shapes"), ralf gustke, felix lehrmann, and stephan maass. check out  for more details. i will see some of you there maybe?

a new podcast is online, "lunch with lang. an update on thomas' recent activities". it has been filmed on september 25th at a local restaurant called "kohlenmuehle". a local restaurant with excellent food where we often go to for lunch. if you haven's subscribed to our video-podcast yet, you can do it easily on our website, (click here), or directly on iTunes. i hope you enjoy this episode of meinl-drum-tv.

the sky seems to be the limit for tokio hotel these days. after winning the mtv music awards in september (see my blog sep 10), the four musicians (including drummer and meinl artist gustav schäfer) from germany have now also won the mtv latino awards for "song of the year", and are nominated in the categories "headliner" and "best act" for the mtv europe music awards too.

this is absolutely amazing! guys, on behalf of meinl: congratulations - you deserve it!
