Rod Morgenstein is best known for being the drummer of the 80’s hair metal band, Winger. But for drummers who have been around Rod Morgenstein is a progressive rock talent and a very respected educator. His books and articles have been used widely. If fact, one my drumming books one he wrote called, ” Filling In The Holes.” This was a fantastic book on the art of linear drumming. The book is no longer in publication but it should be found and revisited by drummers. His best example of his musical chops is with the jazz fusion band, Dixie Dregs in which he is a founding member. They blended a unique style of jazz progressive rock and southern rock. Below is a video of Dixie Dregs on the Tonight Show doing a melody of their song, “Take It To Top” and some very recognizable rock tunes. Enjoy trying to pick which songs are included! Also, you have to love a drummer who smiles!
