THE MAN BEHIND THE KIT FOR BILLY IDOL-ERIK ELDENIUS-DRUMMER-PRODUCER-SONGWRITER-1.5 STEEL--5.5 X 15....

Was very happy to hear here recently that Erik Eldenius, the powerhouse behind the kit for Billy Idol, has his 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 15-Gloss White in the studio right now. He has had an extensive career and has worked with numerous artists (Including Cher, Jackson Browne & Donna Summer to name a few),  has appeared widely on television, and is a touring & studio pro from A-Z, I had a great visit with him here in Wisconsin recently that I thoroughly enjoyed. His approach and ideology to playing live and in the studio are very academic and thorough. In other words...This is a guy who is a serious player, someone who loves playing drums, is someone who has been extremely successful, and like all of the great players...Is one of the nicest and most humble people I have met. Thanks Again Erik for taking time out, and will look forward to your updates. (Link enclosed to a live solo clip from earlier this Summer as well)

Have to mention as well how good it was to see a friend I had not seen in a very long time-Gary Schroeder. Gary invited me to a dinner party to introduce me to Erik, and it simply was a great time. He has a knockout home, a beautiful woman in his life, and a business that is flying. That...Was wonderful to see. Really appreciate it Gary....Great to see you....
