Drummers and those who generally love the musical arts will appreciate Bernhard Castiglioni's very comprehensive website dedicated to the art and practice of drumming. Based in Switzerland, Castiglioni has spent a great deal of his personal attention and care in crafting a site that contains information about dozens of drummers, material on drum clinics, and reports from major drumming conventions and conferences. The "DrumClinic" section should be a first-stop for aspiring drummers, as they can browse through video clips of professionals demonstrating various techniques and grooves. And best of all, the material is by no means limited to just jazz and rock drumming, as other styles, such as Latin and gospel drumming are covered as well. Of course, the section "Drummers" contains very fine clips of numerous musicians, including contemporary favorites as Sheila E. and Meg White and jazz stalwarts such as Rashied Ali and Art Blakey. Other notable performances include a meeting between Gene Krupa, Sammy Davis, Jr. and the man who was billed as the "world's greatest drummer", Buddy Rich.
