From Mr. Alvin Taylor:

Here are recent photos taken in my recording studio in Palm Springs California. Okay folks, it's official. My drum instructor Eric Okamoto and I were able to spend some quality time together going over some lessons and techniques out of the book he's written called, The Drumset Book featuring quadruples drum and cymbal themes. Thank you Eric for taking the time to fly out to California. As a direct result of your consultation, I can truly say that my drumming techniques have improved. I would highly recommend every drummer that's actively involved in recording sessions where you have to read charts purchase a copy of his book. His book will allow you to become an effective reader and it will improve your drumming techniques tremendously.

Who said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I get a chance to go back to school. Yes. That's right folks, at the age of 63 years old after playing drums and producing and performing on over 500 records, 76 gold and 42 platinum records, I will be taking lessons from the fastest drummer in the world Eric Okomoto. He is a world class drummer and educator of drums and percussion and has written some of the greatest books regarding the art of drumming. I look forward to completing this awesome project with this amazing teacher and I look forward to spending time with him beginning this week.
