This week I'm posting someone that many of you won't know. It's a street drummer. He drums on buckets. His hands stay super busy. He's the best drummer I've ever seen I think. He can play a regular drum set, but the most interesting to watch (in my opinion) is him playing on buckets.
His name is Gordo. Also known as Gordo Drummer. Gordo has a wide variety of influences: Buddy Rich Tony Williams, Stewert Copeland, Carter Beauford, Jon Fishman, John Bonham, Steve Smith Dave Weckle, Jimmy Chamberlin, Bill Buford, Dennis Chambers,Will Calhoun, Matt Cameron, Steve Gadd, Aton Fig, Simon Phillips,Omar Hakim, Steve Jordan, Gary Novak, Scot Coogan, the list really goes on and on.
Wasn't his performance just sweet?
In case you want to learn ;), this video he shows some of his tips:
