"Interesting, entertaining, and insightful. Barrell finally gives drummers their due-it's more than we're all a little crazy and just want to make some noise." -- Chad Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers "An engaging journey into the wild and wonderful world of drumming." -- Clem Burke, Blondie "As Born to Drum proves, there's a lot more to be told about drums and drumming than the Rolls-Royce in the swimming pool and the pyro beneath the bass drum . . . Good advice may be found within." -- Nick Mason, Pink Floyd "Everyone should read this book-especially if you're not a drummer. A great insight into a great sport." -- Joey Kramer, Aerosmith
