Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher's Funkestra) and James Welch (Masterlink Productions) talk to drumming legend Mike Dolbear.
Mike is first and foremost a drummer but also educator, co-ordinator and all-round industrious being. As you can hear Mike hijacks our intro (brilliantly) and kicks off explaining how Covid-19 has been affecting him and his fellow musicians. We then take a trip down memory lane as Stef and Mike recall their time at the 'Talk of London'.
He tells us candidly how he works with drummers in the studio, coaching them and being their guide.
Mike goes on to tell us how he was given the task of instructing 1,000 drummers for the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and many large drum ensemble gigs since.
Mike apologises on behalf of his Internet Service Provider for his poor internet connection :-)
