Happy Birthday, Dave Weckl

Happy Birthday, Dave Weckl!

The Jazz-Fusion extraordinaire and the most fantastic mullet to ever grace the cover of Modern Drummer, Dave Weckl celebrates his birthday today! With many educational books and videos under his belt, along with many years performing with artists such as Chick Corea, Paul Simon, and Robert Plant and his own band, The Dave Weckl Band, Dave will go down in history as one of the greatest drummers of all time. A true master of his craft.

Dave plays Yamaha drums and snares, Sabian Cymbals and uses Vic Firth sticks

Probably one of the best examples of just how effortless Dave makes playing drums look and sound. It’s impossible not to bob your head while watching this! Shout out to Tom Kennedy for a pretty incredible bass solo, too!

The same rhythm section, 19 years later. Not a single ounce of tension is portrayed by Weckl here, he always looks so relaxed. This video captures some great footage of how great his foot technique is!

Here’s the vintage Weckl we all know and love, from when he was a Zildjian artist in 1986. LONG LIVE THE MULLET!!

Hope you have a great day, Dave! Which Weckl performance over the years is your favourite?
