The Drummer

Grammy Award winner Henry Owings is publisher of Chunklet magazine, a no-holds-barred chronicle of the music industry. Variously a DJ, promoter, record producer and booking agent, Owings has toured with rock bands for nearly a decade. No surprise, then, that The Rock Bible is packed with closely observed cliché-busting wit and wisdom for the celestial life of rock 'n' roll . . .

'If you get a drumstick endorsement, don't take one of those lame promo photos acting like you're breaking the sticks in half.'

'All drummers wearing headsets should be required to take a food order.'

'No drum gloves. if you can't hold on to drumsticks, you may want to rethink the "playing" part of playing drums.'

Art direction by Bryn Ashburn for Quirk.
