Pick a band. Any band. We bet you can name the frontman. You can probably name the guitarist. But can you name the person who sits at the back? The one with the sticks.
That's the real question.
Look at U2. Everyone knows Bono. Most people know The Edge. But the drummer? Well? Turns out he's called Larry Mullen.
Yep. The drummer of U2 is called Larry
We got your back Larry.
Now we at Concert Hotels say that this cannot go on any longer. We ask, no we demand equal recognition for drummers. No longer can they go on at the back of the stage: out of sight and out of mind. We ask for proper lighting. We ask that we encourage our children to play more than just the guitar or the piano or the flute. We ask for drum solos. Glorious glorious drum solos. Drum solos to drown out the traffic, the neighbours rowing, the dogs barking.
But we know that takes time. Everyone has to start somewhere. So start with Got Rhythm
Drumming is hard. Got Rhythm, our latest game shows this. All you have to do is tap out one simple beat. No melody. No chords. No bells. No whistles. No flutes.
Harder than it looks isn't it?
