MEGADETH's SHAWN DROVER Says First-Ever Drum Clinic Was A Success - July 15, 2009
MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has issued the following update:
"I returned home last Friday night from a great family vacation in various parts of Florida. It was nice to be back on familiar ground, as I used to live in St. [Petersburg] — three different times actually, from 1988-1991. In the middle of this was my drum clinic at Seminole Music, which, to my surprise, was packed.
As this was my first-ever clinic, sure, I was a tad nervous for the first few minutes or so. Once I started playing, it was business as usual, though, and I enjoyed myself. It wasn't easy to try to keep those in attendance entertained for two hours, but I believe I fared pretty well. There were a few things that I wanted to improve on for future clinics (mainly sound-related things), so I talked to a few friends of mine who have done countless clinics to possibly get insight from them. They both helped me out quite a bit, so a quick shout-out to Mike and Ray — thanks, guys!!"
