Give The Drummer Some: Robin Russell of New Birth/The Nite-Liters

New Birth

 

After a two month hiatus, I’m back in the mix with these interviews with influential drummers. This installment features the great Robin Russell, the man behind one of the funkiest on-record drumming performances ever (New Birth’s “Got To Get A Knutt”) and the current source of rhythm in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. An amazing (and under-appreciated) drummer with an amazing story. Each interview I conduct feeds me more information as a I travel down a new musical path. Enjoy.
