The Drum Channel Presents Paul Wertico with Host Terry Bozzio
"Paul Wertico played for years with Pat Metheny and is now a professor of music at Roosevelt University. He is highly respected in the drum community as one of the most musical melodic drummers which certainly comes through in one of the most amazing drum jams we have had on Drum Channel at the end of this show. This two part series talks about what you should play and how you should approach the drumset and the influences your instructors can have on you."
