Secrets & Stories From Australia's Best Studio Drummers

J.R.Robinson, studio drummer legend, talks about how he came up with that “Rock With You” Intro for Michael Jackson

So many studio drummers aspire to create that iconic moment on a hit song. J.R. Robinson has done it hundreds of times. That’s why he is so in-demand for sessions across a whole range of situations, from singles to albums, TV, live performances, etc. Take the time to investigate his discography and you may be surprised at the extent of his work. Check out not just what he plays, but the tone.

Actually, as revealed in my book Stick Figures, our own Australian drummers do the same quality work, but are perhaps under-appreciated.

Enjoy this piece of JR greatness!
