SAM LUMSDEN LIVE AT RAF LOSSIEMOUTH AIRBASE-MORAY, SCOTLAND-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--5.5 X 14....

Sam Lumsden never ceases to amazes me. Whether your listening to a band in a pub in Scotland, a venue elsewhere in the UK, at an event at a Medieval Castle, at an audition for an upcoming movie, in a studio, or getting instruction at First Class Drums in Inverness, you are likely to, or are going to run into this multi-talented/faceted drummer.

If that is not enough, he recently had a gig at the Royal Air Force Base-Lossimouth in Moray, Scotland. As always....he had his 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 with him which he has used non-stop for years now. He also has a 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 15. He is one of those drummers who can literally play anything. You could place him in a Death Metal band, a Sex Pistols Tribute, have him cover Peter Gabriel tunes, follow Stewart Copeland, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon through all that they have done, throw some early Jazz at him, etc.., Not only could he play it, and with ease....But he could explain it in detail. Then he could turn around and teach it all to someone. This is what great drummers can do, and do consistently.

I am always happy to get the latest from Sam. As it is said....This is TBC no doubt...! Thanks Sam...
