The Drum Book reveals the untold story of the rock drum kit, from the moment that Ringo Starr began thrashing his Ludwig kit in the 1960s to the wonderfully diverse scene of today. This completely revised second edition includes an updated story, many extra photographs, and an expanded directory section that covers every major maker and many smaller ones, from Ajax to Zickos. The book absorbs and explains every twist and turn of the music and the drummers who inspired change and invention from the manufacturers, and is full of great color pictures of the kits played by Charlie Watts, John Bonham, Keith Moon and many more.
