Interview with jazz drummer Steve Gadd

I use the word jazz drummer loosely, not because I'm questioning Steve's jazz chops, but because he's adept at so many styles and has recorded with literally everyone, jazz, rock, blues, pop, you name it. While still a relatively young guy (by jazz standards) ask most drummers, and they'll tell you Steve is either a) their idol, or b) a living legend, or c) all of the above. I had a chance to talk to Steve a few months ago, in advance of a clinic and drum performance he was giving here in Fresno. It's not a very lengthy or in depth interview, but it does give you a little insight into Steve's incredible career.
