Skin Deep Solo – Louie Bellson

May 9, 2010

Here is a wicked clip of Louie Bellson laying it down with his Skin Deep Solo… There is a good reason Mr Bellson won the Gene Krupa drum solo championship when he was 17. By then he’d already been pioneering the use and concept of double bass drums for 2 years. Watch carfully was Louie transitions between brushes (to start) and 2 pairs of sticks (to finish). This type of kit setup would eventually be a standard for Metal drummers. Thanks to my old friend Myk St Cyr for pointing it out to me.
