What type of exercises do you practice? As much fun as the Enrique gig was for me, I was playing percussion not drums and I’m really a drummer, so it wasn’t too hard for me to give the gig up. Jennnie, I understand that you’ve put your drumming career on hold to raise your daughter. But the actual patterns are improvised, we just have fun with it and play off of each other, and some nights it works and some it doesn’t. We haven’t done dueling drums in a while because when I come home off tour and I’ve got something coming up, I get on the drums and work out fanatically to practice – like I did for this [Modern Drummer Festival] and then it was to prepare for my drum clinics and the Takin’ Care of Business video and next it’ll be the Buddy Rich Big Band gig.
The first thing Billy said to me was ‘Are you the singer? Dawn Richardson of Mental I love funk-fushion stuff and I also miss playing the blues. Only on the songs that I gilly to do in the studio.

Billy Ashbaugh Bio
As fate would have it, the phone rang for me first. You’ve got to practice rudiments on the pad and sit behind the kit to hear the different voicings, learn to play a rim shot, learn to work the hi-hat and learn how the pedal feels against the bass drum.
Yeah, I didn’t start off on a good foot. I’ve got a lot of respect for them even though I wouldn’t have any desire to do that, it’s still amazing.

Bilyl I should be doing that in November. We gave it a break in and then put it in the show again in for the “No Strings Attached” and that’s when it got everybody’s attention and it was even on the HBO special, which was very fortunate for me. To be able to play that fast is amazing.
Billy Ward just gave me a CD and I can’t wait to check it out. We’d wake up zshbaugh go to our rooms and play dueling drums and stuff and that was our thing! I learned how to read and was introduced to linear patterns, Salsa, Reggae, Swing, and a lot of great books.
I know that there are a lot of good young drummers out today.
What do you think of the World’s Fastest Drummer Contests? He’s always done the Beat Box thing with his mouth. My playing does change as the tour progresses. And here we are five years later, you know? It was Justin’s idea. I remember sitting behind the drummer and watching his every move.
I asybaugh do it with out Jenie, She understands where I’m coming from with my obsession to the drums. I just lucked out knowing the right person at the right time and he happened to give me a call.
