Mike Terrana: In Flight

Mike Terrana is a legendary metal drummer, clinician, and all-around nice guy. A longtime transplant from the US, Mike recently moved from Germany to Italy. And, he also recent hit another milestone, when he turned a big 5-0. Discussing his age at Musikmesse, Mike joked that his skills were now "decrepit and out of date" in an era of speed metal. But judging by the response of fans at the Drumcraft booth, where MIke put on a clinic in powerful drumming, you'd have to say he's as relevant, and brilliant as ever. His volume, technique and musicality remain totally righteous. We thought you'd like these pics of Mike in his office, a white Drumcraft double bass set with lightning-bright copper hardware.

I think that says it.
