The May Issue of Modern Drummer has an article on Ron Thaler: “Ron Thaler-Blond Ambition”. It is an excellent read, as one might it expect it to be. He is an 8 time Grammy & #1 Billboard charting producer, drummer, arranger & songwriter who has recorded on over 450 albums. He is regarded worldwide as quite simply…One of the best. I really enjoyed his thoughts on music today, acoustic drums, the earlier days of his career, and the future. I found myself throughout the article thinking “Yeah”…”Could not agree more”…often! What he say’s…Just makes perfect sense.

I have always been unbelievably happy he has a 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 14 in his collection of go-to drums for his work. He mentioned to me recently that the drum is a “fantastic & wonderful sounding power puncher, and it has already been tracked on many occasions”. He is a master of communication and detail, and is an all-around sincere & very nice guy.

Thanks Again Ron for everything….Looking forward to many more articles on you, and to the volume of work that you will be creating…
