EP 86 - Legendary Teachers: Freddie Gruber with Bruce Becker

Freddie Gruber is known as the teacher of iconic drummers such as Neil Peart, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, and my guest Bruce Becker. Freddie has somewhat of a mysterious background that wasn't well documented, but Bruce fills us in on what is known about his life and career, plus many great stories of what it what it was like to be on the inner circle of his friends. Freddie was a real character of a person and you really get a feel for that with this episode.

Bruce Becker is legendary teacher in his own right and really had one of the closest relationships with Freddie possible. If you would like to learn more about Bruce and take lessons with him, check out his website:
