I recently had the huge honour of being involved with the innaugral The UK Drum Show at Manchester Central Conference Centre back in late September.

What a superb weekend it was, with some stunning performances from many legendary drummers, including Dennis Chambers, Thomas Lang, John 'JR' Robinson, Simon Phillips, Craig Blundell, Michael Schack, George Kollias and Emmanuelle Caplette (to name just a few), and it was wonderful to see so many friends, some of who I hadn't seen for a number of years!
