All Russ Miller Studio Interviews
? In this video:
There is a zero-failure rate on Russ his level of professional playing and recording. The video starts with a fun story from Russ when he was playing on American Idol.
Included is footage we have with Russ from a few years ago, to illustrate the topic he is explaining here: about playing the most stressful situations that you have absolutely no control of. And he makes fun of it! With all that pressure an artist has to endure, there is only one rule: play it like never before!
The second part has Russ explaining what it takes to do his drumming job. This might be one of the best drum lessons on how to approach your instrument when playing a song, or even when you feel insecure about it. We almost gave this video the title: 'The Most Important Word in Music'. Watch Russ reveal 'the key to playing drums'.
? A Drummer's Coincidence?
A few months ago, we published a first ever interview series with The Voice drummer Hans Eijkenaar on Drummerszone on the most famous stage on this planet. This Dutch drum icon has exactly the same story as Russ on the topic in this video. Is it a coincidence, or are these the guys that have the Key to playing drums nailed to the core?
