On April 17, Springfield IL-based Daddy O’s Music Shack hosted a drum clinic with Master Clinician and Styx drummer Todd Sucherman. The standing-room-only crowd of more than 160 in attendance listened to him explain his techniques behind the drumkit and watched his blistering performance of a jaw-dropping 17-minute drum solo. Sucherman suggested to the audience that we find our passion in art, sculpting, music, etc. and spend time with it. Turning off the television and getting off the computer to live with and indulge our passion for awhile, fueling our hearts and dreams, resonated deeply with the attentive crowd. He then went on to play along to several recorded tracks before taking questions from the audience and signing autographs. The event was co-sponsored by Pearl drums, Sabian cymbals, Remo drumheads and Pro-Mark drumsticks, all of which also generously provided door prizes.
