It is also a celebration of inspirational music. Non denominational, but never the less uplifting. It certainly makes a nice change from the rap crap that seems to have pervaded every corner of...

Drums and more importantly drummers are an intrinsic element in most bands. Their importance is often overshadowed by the lead guitar and the vocalist. Many bands would fail without that guy, or girl banging away in the background. Heads Up is a DVD entirely devoted to drumming. The artists include: Gregg Bissonette, John Blackwell Jr., Gerald Heyward, C.G. Ryche, Sean McCurley, Louis Santiago Jr, Nathaniel Townsley, Bill Bachman, Christopher Coleman, Andrew Lloyd and Derek Winkley. Alas the drums on their own, with the noticeable exception of the steel drums do not make for a very satisfactory solo instrument. Luckily...
