Next time you’re at the movies listen out for the soundtrack - it’s likely to feature Ralph at the drums. He’s played on over 100 movies, including loads of biggies.
Ralph Salmins says:
“Movies I’ve played on include Burn After Reading, Donnie Brasco, Evita, Goldeneye, The Last King of Scotland, Philadelphia and Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King. Azkaban is my only Harry Potter, but it was for the great (composer) John Williams.”
“I would say The Knight Bus was the most difficult music I’ve ever seen given to any musicians on a recording session... except for my part, which was very easy! I’m playing an off-beat choke cymbal. It was recorded in Abbey Road Studio One and involved drums, bass and piano with an extremely large wind orchestra.”
“It’s an honour to work with John Williams; a delightful man, whom I would call a genius.”
