Being part of the storytelling process.

“It’s so important to know the lyrics of the song that you’re playing. You can emotionally attach yourself to the song  and be apart of the songs storytelling process” says, legendary Styx Drummer “Todd Sucherman”.  So many drummers don’t pay attention to the music. They just play the bars overlooking the whole story telling process. Emotionally connecting to the song  will cause a greater depth and understanding the flow of the song.

Who is Todd Sucherman?

But the musical history began basically at birth.
