- Honoring Ndugu Chancler with four clinic videos -
On February 3, 2018, master drummer Ndugu Chancler died at the age of 65 of prostate cancer in Los Angeles. To celebrate and honor the life of Ndugu Chancler, we dug up and revamped the footage from his clinic at the London Drum Show in 2010, patched them up and publish them here again.

Ndugu Chancler was not only a brilliant and gifted soul, funk, country and jazz drummer. He was also a percussionist, played the vibraphone and was a skilled songwriter and producer. As a songwriter he won a Grammy in 1982 with the Dazz Band's 'Let It Whip'. And, of course, he was the drummer on Michael Jackson's crazy-selling single 'Billie Jean', which boosted 'Thriller' to become the best-selling album of all time (over 66 million world wide). He can also be heard on the Thriller-tracks 'P.Y.T'. and 'Baby Be Mine'. Jeffrey Porcaro took care of the rest of the drum tracks on this album.

Read and watch our complete Ndugu Chancler article and IM on:

We made four videos of this session, that he played continuously for 45 minutes.

1. The first one (this video) is the start of the clinic, playing with his hands, and switching to brushes, and later drumsticks

2. Second is where we would like to pinpoint his master groove skills on the hi-hat

3. The third one is at the end of the clinic, where he plays a Michael Jackson medley of songs he recorded with the King of Pop.

4. The fourth video is the entire clinic. We recommend watching it fully to only get a grasp of his sound, playing and musicality.
