Earl Bennett has been a collector and enthusiast of US drum magazines for the last 40+ years and he shares his vast knowledge of known magazines like Modern Drummer, Drum!, and Rhythm plus other lesser known ones like Traps, Classic Drummer, and Talking Drum. We discuss the many different styles and variations of magazines through the years and how they had to pivot in the digital age to stay alive as long as they could. As of 2023, physical drum magazines have become few and far between but will always be an important part of drum history.
Earl has a great YouTube channel where he hosts interviews, plays covers, and discusses this collection. Check him out and be sure to subscribe to keep up with Earl. Check him out here: https://www.youtube.com/@earldrum
