Dave Castagno of RadioScreamer and Screamer Magazine conducted an interview with Rikki Rockett, drummer of multiplatinum rock band POISON, at this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.
Rockett is out to prove that "drums do come true" on his new reality show, "American Drums".
On "American Drums", Rockett gives viewers an all-access pass into the gritty world of rock and roll craftsmen ? from his oddball staff and their hard-to-impress clientele to the high-tech drum designs themselves.
"Making drums of this caliber is not easy," says Rockett. "It takes precision, artistry, and craftsmanship. My crew has all three." He continues, "If I'm being totally honest, when we deliver kits to the clients, it never ceases to amaze me we're able to hit aggressive deadlines and budgets when I see the lunatics running the asylum back at my shop. But we've never messed up an order ? yet."
"American Drums" is currently being shopped to networks, so be on the lookout for more drums ? and more drama ? in 2013.
