Announcing a Corfu, Greece Masterclass Workshop featuring Solo Artist, Producer, and Guitar Virtuoso Mattias <IA> Eklundh, along with drumming legend Tommy Aldridge. Tommy's signature style is a rare combination of power, technique, and feel. A partial listing of his performing and recording credits include Black Oak Arkansas, Pat Travers, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, Ozzy Osbourne, John Sykes, Ted Nugent, and Whitesnake. In 1988, he was voted best rock drummer in the Modern Drummer Reader's Poll.
Tommy remains very active as a clinician and his instructional video "Rock Drum Soloing and Double Bass Workout" lays out a solid foundation for the modern rock drummer.
With his hard-hitting style, flair, and showmanship, Tommy continues to be a major influence in hard rock and heavy metal drumming. Tommy is currently preparing for his upcoming tour with Whitesnake in Fall 2014…
