Drummer John Blackwell Interview - Seminole Music & Sound

On October 19th, 2009, John Blackwell sat down with DrummerConnection.com's Damian King, Billy Ashbaugh and Eric Rosebrock after his drum clinic at Seminole Music & Sound. DrummerConnection.com closely follows John Blackwell's progress into the ranks of legendary drummers. The Drummer Connection crew has reserved a special place in our hearts for John Blackwell. He's a very special, gentle person who has inspired us through his amazing ability to not only play the drums, but understand music as a whole.  John has deep roots in music, and he has proven in every aspect that if you believe in yourself, and what you like to do, that you will become successful.

John Blackwell was also a distinguished drummer performing in the Buddy Rich Memorial Concert, 2008 at the Hammerstein Ball Room in Manhattan, New York. The Drummer Connection staff attended this coveted event and witnessed John Blackwell's amazing performance which received an extended standing ovation. He was not alone however, John Blackwell also performed with Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, Nick Rich, Donnie Marple, Peter Erskine, Tommy Igoe, Chad Smith and The Buddy Rich Band, all of which gave explosive performances that could not be compared to one another. You can purchase this excellent DVD produced by Drum Channel online or at your local music store.  It is an amazing DVD, very well produced and an exceptional job on the documentation of this long awaited event.

 

 

John Blackwell has an extensive history in music and drumming stemming from his father John Blackwell Sr. who was also a drummer. John watched his father and noted his incredible pocket, which he still talks about to this day. Through his father's inspiration, John attended Berklee College, and was called upon from Cameo to become the group's new drummer.  Leaving Berklee to pursue the stars, John has been on an incredible career path ever since. Performing with Cameo, Justin Timberlake, Prince and several other artists, he has proven that he could make his way.

John Blackwell also spends an incredible amount of his time teaching and giving drum clinics. DrummerConnection.com has attended over 5 of John's clinics over the past 3 years and every one of them have been incredible. He also gives private lessons at Seminole Music & Sound periodically throughout the year.  
John Blackwell proudly endorses Tama, Zildjian Drum Sticks, Zidjian Cymbals and Remo Drum Heads.

Paul Quin - Drummer / Music Attorney Interview

Submitted by billy ashbaugh on: Wednesday, Oct 6, 2010

The music industry is made up of various players including individuals, companies, unions, not-for-profit organizations, rights collectives, and other associated bodies.

Kobe Says Every time I hear John

Submitted On: Thursday, Mar 6, 2014 - 11:26 AM

Every time I hear John Blackwell performing on stage, I am speechless, with each concert he proves that he really is a legend. Perseverance and hard work are the keys to such success, abilities that defines the young artists from http://singforhope.org/, their commitment will help them fulfill their dreams.

Submitted On: Tuesday, Aug 13, 2013 - 12:47 PM

Since the day that I hear his voice and his music, it's really getting into my nerves like I wanted to play it again and again. From that time, I started collected all his music. I also engage my self on how to get more youtube views. Thanks John.

addam Says I wish I could see him

Submitted On: Tuesday, Jun 25, 2013 - 4:19 PM

I wish I could see him teaching music at our college. Some of my coleagues are fascinated by his work, I'm sure having him around would be such an amazing experience from both sides. Until we get that lucky I still have to rely on my faithful custom writing resource.

King Says Thanks again fellas!

Thanks again John for taking the time to share some thoughts with us. It was a pleasure getting to watch your clinic, great job man!! Also, thanks to Paul & John Spinelli for making this possible!

seminole Says Wow, Blackwell did it again!

Submitted On: Friday, Oct 23, 2009 - 10:10 AM

Every time John does a clinic it is always different. Yeah, he does his "signature licks" and plays his "nasty grooves" but he also takes you somewhere we haven't been before. John works hard on his craft to better himself and inspire the rest of us.

Super thanks to John Blackwell for hanging out until 11pm talking to everyone and signing autographs doing the interview and playing his butt off. And special thanks to Drummer Connection for sharing this with everyone who couldn't attend.

John

drumfreak Says Thank You!!

Thank You John Blackwell, John Spinelli and Paul Quin for making this interview possible. It has been a pleasure to follow John Blackwell and to be able to speak to him and watch him perform regularly. Seminole Music & Sound has pulled through once again and helped another star shine.

Thanks Everyone!
