Drum For The Song Podcast
Darby Todd (Freelance - Devin Townsend / Martin Barre) #41
Thanks for checking out episode 41 of Drum For The Song podcast featuring the stupidly talented Darby Todd who likes to refer to himself as a freelance drummer and has been recently sitting behind the kit for Devin Townsend and Martin Barre (ex- Jethro Tull).
In this episode, Darby and I have a good chat about his recent experiences on the road with Devin Townsend and how he landed the job in the first place. We also talk about how to prepare for an audition and why transcribing all of the parts can be a useful tool for memorization. We also talk about Darby's drum equipment including his Zildjian cymbals and how he's very recently moved to playing British Drum Company drums.
