"My parents bought me a drum set when I was five. I am pretty much self-taught. I had some nice teachers, but I learned most from listening to good records and concerts. I saw Buddy Rich play when I was 10 years old, and that opened up a lot for me. Cause inspiration was, and still is one of the most important things I think. When I heard Buddy play, I wanted to play like him, I didn't ask any questions, I just ran to the drum set and tried to do something close to what he did. Later on, I found drummers that were even more appealing to me. (...) Some of my favorite drummers are also inspiring composers, like Christian Vander, Daniel Denis and Bill Bruford."Born in Umeå, Sweden, Mr. Ågren was spotted as an outstanding talent at a young age as he began performing publicly at age seven. Eventually Morgan joined forces with Mats Öberg in 1981, when he was 14 years old. They later formed Zappsteetoot together in 1984, a band internationally known for performing Zappa's music.
MEET MORGAN ÅGREN.
ARTIST. MUSICIAN. DRUMMER.
HE LIVES IN SWEDEN.
What do Frank Zappa, Devin Townsend, and Fredrik Thordendal of Meshuggah have in common? They all re-invented rock music, and they all selected Morgan as their drummer. Yet his Â“intentionally brokenÂ” and complex drumming makes most musicians plug their ears, go home and practice, or just quit. Praised only by the enlightened few, this 45-year-old husband and humble father remains unknown to popular music listeners. But why? Watch this 2-hour documentary as Morgan visits L.A. in search of an answer to his continuing conundrum: Â”The Music or The Money?Â”
