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...
