This is the kind of impromptu performance you can expect to stumble upon while wandering down the aisles of the NAMM show. Here the legendary speed demon Derek Roddy dropped by the Axis Percussion booth – the makers of infamous pedals favored by many metal drummers – and laid down a head-spinning solo (he’s an Axis endorser). Note: Despite the fact that the company’s booth was jam-packed with spectators watching Roddy burn, not one of them bothered to applaud after his performance. Can you say, “jaded NAMM attendees?”
