The Art Show
Cut to the Drummer is 50 portraits of 50 drummers by 50 artists. Who will be featured? The talented. The notorious. The influential. The drummers. From Jazz great Tony Williams to Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham. From Neil Peart of Rush, to Travis Barker of Blink 182. Who are the artists? You’ve seen their work in every major publication in Western culture. In magazines. Newspapers. Broadway posters. Books. Postage stamps. Product packaging. T-shirts. They are the aesthetic leaders of our times.
Why cut to the drummer? Because the drummer is the goalie of the band – hidden by equipment and relegated to the back, but a vital presence in the music. It is fitting to bring the drummer to the front of the stage. The mythology of the drummer warrants exploration.
