  by    0   1


In this podcast, Daniel jumps in to part two of “tackling life head-on.” The topic is WINGING IT – in other words, what to do when life throws you a curve ball and you have to react immediately.

The ultimate in Winging It – Dave Grohl breaks his leg in Sweden … and finishes the show!

Dave sang the remaining Foo Fighter dates from a special “throne” designed to accommodate the broken leg.

Dave brings Ian up to sit in on drums ….

Dave brings up Anthony the crying fan to sing with him onstage.

Here’s Royal Crown Revue live on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” circa 1998. When the power went out at the Blessing of the Cars a couple of years earlier, we had to “wing it” with an all acoustic set.

Buddy Rich was a genius drummer who could pick up virtually any musical idea or song on the spot and play it better than anyone else. Here’s a video of Buddy playing double bass drums (and nothing else) in 1949. Three years earlier, he broke his left arm in three places, and played the next three months with just the right.

Louis Prima and Co. doin’ their thing in the late 1950s. At 2:41, you can see drummer Bobby Morris playing a ride cymbal that had been buried in his brother’s back yard, creating what I call a “happy musical accident.” Read an in-depth interview with Bobby about his amazing experiences with Louis Prima in  The Roots of Rock Drumming Book/DVD


When I had ankle surgery in 2013, I played several RCR shows and clinics with just one foot.

Ending where we began, here’s Dave Grohl’s keynote speech at the South By Southwest music conference. The speech describes a lifetime of “winging it.”
