Zildjian Artist, Stephen Perkins of Janes Addiction, recently held 2 clinics in Australia - one in Sydney (held in conjunction with Billy Hyde's Music) and one in Melbourne (held in conjunction with Drumtek & Drumscene Magazine ).
Both shows were a fantastic success and a great night for all the people who attended. Stephen's style of clinic was great, he took a slightly different approach which the audience was enthralled by.
Starting with a solo on 8 splash cymbals, then moving to a solo on an African drum, he finished off the first section of the clinic with a Timpani solo.
After playing a few great pieces on his kit, he played one final kit solo piece. Stephen had spoke of his stories about the band, (Janes Addiction), advice about International Stadium Touring, and drumming as a lifestyle.
Stephen had the audience captivated by both his general Rock & Roll stories and shenanigans from the past 20 years in a high profile, L.A Rock band.
We would like to thank Stephen and everyone involved for great nights and an inspiring clinics!!
