The world's best drummers are showcased in this book of magnificent photographs and fascinating interviews by renowned photographer Deirdre O'Callaghan. The drummer is usually the least well-known member of any band. Yet behind every frontman is the person keeping the beat, and often acting as the music's driving force. In these incredible portraits, Deirdre O'Callaghan places drummers squarely in the spotlight. Photographing her subjects in their private rehearsal spaces and residences--from studios, bedrooms and basements to garages and gardens--allows her to capture the true essence of their personalities and lifestyles. She has photographed almost 100 celebrated musicians for the book, including Ringo Starr, Questlove, Janet Weiss, Dave Grohl, Bobbye Hall, Lars Ulrich, Jack White, and Leah Shapiro. Each image is accompanied by excerpts from O'Callaghan's personal conversations with the drummers. The result is a fascinating look at a truly diverse world made up of men and women from every walk of life, united by a single, emphatic passion. AUTHOR: eirdre O'callaghan has published numerous books of photography, including Hide That Can, which was awarded Book of the Year by both the International Center of Photography in New York and the Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles. One of the original team at Dazed and Confused magazine, O'Callaghan has shot artwork and press for major record labels as well as stars such as U2, The National, De La Soul, and Disclosure. 200 colour
