Further to my disgust of Drumfest I had news yesterday of more disappointment for the fans who stayed longer than we did. Jason Bonham didn’t turn up to do his part of the show in the afternoon. I am unclear for what reasons and I’m sure that it was circumstances beyond their control and it couldn’t be helped, but it must have added to the frustration of the day.

It’s a shame that such a well thought-out show ended in a noisy, unorganised attempt to entertain us. I still believe that as drummers we are all interested in watching and meeting artists, we just need someone to do it properly.

Here’s hoping that next year is better!
