I spent my childhood trying to figure out what and how this man did what he did on the drums. Thanks to the books and DVDs that’s he’s put out in the last 20 years, I finally got to “break the code” on his grooves on many of my beloved Tower of Power songs. Nope…can’t say I’m anywhere close to his level, but what I learnt and practice from studying his drumming has helped me improve my dynamics, precision, touch, and feel on the instrument. I’m still a student and fan of his as I was when I first heard more than 24 years ago. WHAT IS HIP? DAVID GARIBALDI. And he’ll always be no matter where drumming is at right now…
