Drumeo Gab Podcast

Are ya tired of hearing, "so, like, uhh talk to me about how you started playing drums" in drumming podcasts? I'm gonna say, probably not as much as the guests are. I dunno, I think it's better to cut to the chase and explore pinpoint moments in their lives by forming curiosities around my research :0 IF YOU ARE DOWN FOR THAT; WELCOME! (Side Note: I strongly believe that the best part of the podcasting experience for listeners is the ability to connect with the host. So, don't be shy :)

Ralph Rolle is the current and long standing drummer for Nile Rodgers and Chic. He has worked with legendary artists such as Lady Gaga, Elvis Costello, Al Green, Sting, Slash, Queen Latifah, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Chaka Khan, and Lauryn Hill to name a few.

 

We discuss his cookie company The Soul Snacks Cookie Company, how he landed the Chic gig (which spans a thirty year time frame), a great story about how Ralph became endorsed with Yamaha through an encounter with the great Steve Gadd, and his experiences as the house drummer for the Apollo Theatre that spanned nearly two decades. We round off the interview with a heartfelt story about the NY Lancers Drum and Bugle Corps and the corps director, Carmelo Saez.
