Legend isn’t too strong a superlative for Vinnie Colauita. One of the world’s most revered session drummers, Vinnie has played for Sting, Frank Zappa, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck and more. As you’d expect, he had much information and valuable experience to impart.
“When you’re young, you think you’re a hot-shot, ready for everything because because you’ve played along to records and learnt all those little tricks. But here’s the thing –you don’t know how and why those drummers played what they did until you have the benefit of experience. I’ve sweated blood – literally – and put a lot of work into what I do.”
