10 drummers in one song! You might have seen Andre Antunes’ take on Daft Punk - Get Lucky. He played that tune in the style of 10 famous guitar players. I like that video a lot and I decided to have a go on a tribute to 10 famous drummers. I chose Rihanna’s 'Diamonds' and we recorded all parts from scratch in the style of 10 famous drummers and their corresponding bands. So here we go, these are the drummers/bands in the order of their appearance and the timings
# 1 Phil Collins (Genesis) - 0:08
# 2 Steve Gadd (Paul Simon) - 0:31
# 3 Neil Peart (Rush) - 0:53
# 4 John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) - 1:13
# 5 Ringo Starr (The Beatles) - 1:31
# 6 Phil Rudd (AC/DC) - Phil Rudd 1:47
# 7 Dave Grohl (Nirvana) - 2:02
# 8 Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) - 2:24
# 9 Jeff Porcaro (Toto) - 2:47
# 10 Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater) - 3:18

AJ Pero, the drummer with US heavy metal band Twisted Sister, has died aged 55.
The group announced his death on their website, but did not give the cause of death.
Pero first joined Twisted Sister in 1982 and left in 1986, but he later reunited with the band in 2001 and continued to perform with them.
We write this with tears in our eyes & our hearts broken to pieces.. our beloved brother AJ Pero peacefully passed away in his sleep this morning on the bus. We are in complete shock & our hearts & prayers go out to his family. It has been nothing short of an honor to have shared the stage with such a beautiful soul & legend! We love you AJ, rest in peace.
We will cherish this last picture we all took together on tour forever! What a great night we had... we'll miss you buddy!

In Japan soon (subbing for John Marshall) with the Softs (Soft Machine Legacy) - will be fun - never played with this combo before.
Making the plug as Billboard Live are not advertising my name or telling people online that John isn't there. Loose! Anyway, looking forward to the music. — withBillboard Live Band, John Etheridge, Theo Travis,Keith Tippett and Roy Babbington.
