There are many YouTube videos I like, which I will post over time. It’s very hard to decide which I’d like to show you to begin with, but here are a few that have definitely helped shape the drummer I am today.
I have included a video of my father, Des. He joined The Frames on stage as a guest for a song on the day of his 70th birthday, and stole the show.
- Baby Dodds
- Gene Krupa, with the Benny Goodman Big Band
- Gene Krupa & Papa Joe Jones, short three-piece doc
- Levon Helm, with The Band
- Stevie Wonder, drum solo
- John Bonham, with Led Zeppelin
- Des Hopkins, with The Frames on his 70th birthday!
