Steve Ferrone Episode 2

Steve Ferrone.

When I introduced Steve for his previous show with us, I compared his amazing array of musical credits with his world-class snare drum collection.

Steve’s drumming, and his powerful groove, have made a deep mark on music history, with acts as diverse as The Average White Band, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Duran Duran, the Saturday Night Live band, Pat Metheny and too many more to count. Just as we gave up counting the drums in his collection.

While we worked on the show, playing and talking through his favorite music, there was once again too much good stuff to count! so, we are back with Steve, as he shares the music that moves him the most.
