TONIGHT: Dave Weckl drum clinic at UT Music Hall

Dave Weckl, a modern day drum legend, guru, composer and producer will hold a clinic tonight at the University of Tennessee's Music Hall at 7:30. Local drum shop Fork's is bringing him to town as part of the Sabian Clinic Tour. You can purchase tickets at both Fork's Drum Closet or at the door for $10.

Weckl made a name for himself playing with Paul Simon, Madonna and the infamous Chick Corea in the late 80s. I remember him because I always bought his line of Vic Firth drumsticks when I growing up and playing drums back in the days of yore. My, that seems like so long ago now.

Anyhow, check him out- I'm sure he'll pop an eardrum or two tonight, so if that interests you, I hope to see you there.
