Happy Birthday, Virgil Donati

Happy Birthday, Virgil Donati!

For those who don’t know Virgil, he’s an Australian drummer and composer, widely regarded as one of the most technically advanced drummers of all time, so we decided to put together a few clips of where Virgil really blew our minds!

Virgil plays DW Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Remo Drum Heads, Vater Drumsticks and uses Ahead Armor Cases!

TamTam Drum Festival – 2021

It speaks volumes, literally, that Virgil is in his 60s during this performance. The level of precision, speed and power just leaks out of him effortlessly!

Drum Solo w/Steve Vai

This clip definitely wasn’t yesterday, see his hair for confirmation of that, but it’s no less an outstanding display of talent while Virgil was performing with Steve Vai!

Virgil Donati Group – The Empire

A more recent affair from Virgil, performing at the Dresden Drum Festival in 2016. In particular, this performance is with his own group, The Virgil Donati Group playing their song The Empire.

We would love to have Virgil for a clinic one day!
