Gerry Brown

I was lucky enough a couple weeks ago to attend two drum clinics in a week. A music store brings in famous drummers for a personal, up close drum lesson/chat. One of my favorites whom I had the chance to see before was Gerry Brown. If you're over 40 years old, you'll remember all those 80's/90'S hits that Lionel Ritchie came out with, that was Gerry Brown on the drums. Before that he toured with Stevie Wonder for fifteen years...THAT would get your chops together. He's been touring with Diana Ross for the last fourteen years. The compelling fact is that those three artists alone have probably been heard by over a hundred million people. Gerry combined a great personality, humour and of course, superior drumming skills to wow his transfixed audience.
