(EN+ITA) My interview with Mikey Sorbello on the last Drum Club Magazine issue

(ITA below)

Exciting news as on this month’s issue of THE Italian drum magazine Drum Club you will find my interview with Mikey Sorbello of the Graveltones.

Last february I invited Mike to host one of the Dr. Paradiddles’ monthly seminars, he accepted with enthusiasm and all the presents were galvanized by his energetic and inspired drumming. On that occasion I got a chance to spend some time with Mikey and found out not only he is an astonishing drummer with a deep knowledge of the instrument but also a great guy on so many levels. Hanging out with him was a true pleasure!

As a result of the time we spent together this interview/seminar review saw the light and landed on the pages of DCM where you will find more about Mikey, some great excercises and, hopefully, the same sort of inspiration he gave us in person.

don’t miss it!

—ITA VERSION—

Grande novita’: sul numero di giugno di Drum Club Magazine e’ stata pubblicata la mia intervista a Mikey Sorbello dei the Graveltones.

Lo scorso febbraio ho invitato Mikey a tenere uno dei nostri seminari mensili al Dr.Paradiddles’ Wonder Drumporium, lui ha accettato subito con entusiasmo e tutti i presenti hanno avuto una vera iniezione di entusiasmo dal suo drumming energetico e ispirato. In quell’occasione ho avuto modo di passare del tempo con Mikey e scoprire che oltre ad essere un batterista fenomenale, con una vastissima conoscenza dello strumento, e’ anche una gran persona da molti punti di vista e passare del tempo insieme e’ stato un vero piacere!

Da quella giornata e’ nata questa intervista che approda ora sulle pagine di Drum Club Magazine, in tutte (o quasi!) le edicole -e disponibile in formato elettronico online– dove troverete aggiornamenti su Mikey e i suoi progetti, degli utilissimi esercizi e, spero, almeno parte dell’entusiasmo che ha trasmesso a noi in persona.

Da non perdere!

Just launched this web base where I’ll try to post regularly about my activities, drum tips and music in general, keep an eye here !

At the moment I’m busying myself with teaching drums at the Dr. Paradiddles’Wonder Drumporium and via Skype (few spots still available, get in touch if interested!). Also working on the debut album from Traffic Jam (UK, ITA, DE) which is gonna be something special and followed by a promo tour in UK and Europe, and playing drums for several international acts.

In the meantime warm season is (almost) here so you’ll shortly find me busking with my international blues friends by the streets of Berlin, ready to have fun and make you dance!

Groove and Love
