Carl Palmer Drum Solos DVD Review By Gail!

If you are old like me, and remember watching prog rock gods Emerson, Lake & Palmer perform “Karn Evil 9” at the California Jam back in the stone ages (1974), then you’ll also remember that during his infamous extended-dance-re-mix-version of a drum solo, Carl Palmer played part of his kit with his teeth. Rock & Roll! Carl recently released his first instructional drum DVD entitled Carl Palmer: Drum Solos, where you can see that very solo played back at four different speeds, and my review of that DVD is up now at Ink19 Dot Com!

Happy Birthday, Jon Schnepp!

Geoffrey,  Jon and Me

Today, May 16th, is the birthday of one of the most entertaining people I’ve ever met, Jon Schnepp, who directs Metalocalypse, and works on a bunch of other awesome shows for the Adult Swim Network. Back in April, at least I think that’s when it was, I was lucky enough to hang out with Jon while we waited in line to get into Tara McPherson’s Cotton Candy Machine store for the Tiny Trifecta art sale. Jon is completely hilarious and had Geoffrey and I almost peeing our pants for the three hours it took us to get into the store. Jon, I hope you have a wonderful birthday and thank you for the laughs and the cool TV programs!  If you’d like to learn more about Jon, and perhaps also wet your pants from laughter, you can read my February 2010 interview with him at This Link.
