Welcome! This month we’re graced with not one, but three absolute legends of the kit, and each one for their own particular voice. First up, it’s Stewart Copeland. Even if Sting’s vocals aren’t your cup of tea, it’s practically impossible for us drummers to not like The Police, and the recently-released vinyl boxset is testament as to why. Stewart kindly agreed to take a look back over the band (and his drumming) legacy for this month’s cover feature, inviting Rhythm to his Sacred Grove home studio in LA. Next up, there’s Dennis Chambers, who sat down with us for this month’s Rhythm Interview. And then there’s Jojo Mayer, whose jazz-meets-electronic style never ceases to be anything short of amazing. Also this month, we have lessons and jam tracks for John Mayer…

this month’s experts

PETE RILEY As well as getting his groove on for Jeff Porcaro and Steve Jordon parts, Pete also came up with some lessons on Stewart Copeland’s playing style too. Somehow, Pete also managed to fit a tour in the middle of it all! He’s earned a sit down. DAVID WEST David went to the iconic Ronnie Scott’s for this month’s Dennis Chambers interview, before sitting down with Jojo Mayer in Hoxton to talk gear, sonic experimentation and Jojo’s love of improvisation. CHUCK PARKER Chuck was lucky enough to visit Stewart Copeland at his Sacred Grove studio in LA this month, chatting for over two hours.

slade gives blessing for rudd return

Chris Slade has given his thoughts on rumours that Phil Rudd is back with AC/DC. Slade, who has had two spells behind the kit for the rock legends, most recently stepping onto the Rock Or Bust world tour due to the latter’s absence, told eonmusic that he wishes the band luck in whichever guise it moves forward. He said: “There are all sorts of rumours: Axl’s going to be doing a track, Brian’s going to be doing a track, there are so many variables here. And I’ve learned with AC/DC also, not to believe the rumours, because even fans fake things. “But Angus is now over 60, I think, so he’s still got a few years to go, judging by me and Brian. That’s all he does – he relaxes by painting, and…

tico torres bon jovi

You’re currently rehearsing for the latest leg of Bon Jovi’s This House Is Not For Sale tour. After all of these years playing with the band, can you give us some insight into what a Bon Jovi rehearsal looks like? “It’s all about getting the gears greased up a little bit. You know, we have a lot of songs. Every 10 days or so before we’re doing something we’ll get together for a couple of days. We have maybe 100 songs to pick from and we all like changing it up so we’ll go over all of them. We have the obvious songs, but there’s also some others that we like to play around with and elongate a little bit just for fun. The songs change yearly. Our hardcore fans will…
