The Drum Shuffle

The Drum Shuffle - Episode 066 - Shawn Pelton

April 24, 2019

Shawn Pelton hardly needs an introduction in the drumming community.  Having recording credits as diverse as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Pink, Sheryl Crow, Van Morrison, and Pavarotti, it goes without saying that he is an in-demand session drummer with nearly unmatched versatility.  Shawn may be best-known as the drummer on Saturday Night Live since 1992; however, that is only a small part of his drumming career.  On episode 066, Shawn and Jamie discuss his early years in Kansas, his college years at Indiana University, and his move to New York where his career went into overdrive and hasn't slowed since.  They also discuss many of the incredible gigs that Shawn has played including The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony among many, many others.  Shawn is one of the coolest cats in the music business and seems to be everywhere all the time.  He is simply groove personified and offers a ton of great information in one of his rare interviews.
