Don’t Feed The Drummer
Rock of Ages Drum Shield
Well it’s really a Drum Booth. If you go watch Premier Guitar‘s Rock of Ages Rig Rundown you can catch a few glimpses of a real Broadway Drum Shield behind Joel Hoekstra and Tommy Kessler. The non screen capture images are from broadwayworld.com If you have a better photo please go to the submit image page and send it in.
Please Don’t Feed The Drummer
True to form most of these shots are obscured by Joel Hoekstra the lead guitarist…Typical.
This is an early version of the stage, but epitomizes quite well the issue. Guitarists out and about rocking. Way in the back all by his lonesome, behind his glass, sits the drummer.
Sometimes even professionals hold their drum shield together with duct tape.
Another telling shot. Lead singer and two guitarists hamming it up, and unless someone told you you may not even know there’s a drummer right behind them.
Let’s give the drummer his due. Here’s a shot of Jon Weber where you can actually see him:
Still safe behind his shield, segregated behind glass.
