Terry Bozzio is someone we could call “a drummer’s drummer”. Widely known for his work with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck, Korn, UK, Missing Persons, Mick Jagger, Robbie Robertson, Alan Holdsworth, Tony Levin, Steve Vai, Quincy Jones, Ken Scott, Metropole Orkest – as well as film score composers Basil Poledouris, Mark Isham & Patrick O’Hearn, Bozzio is a Grammy Winner, RockWalk Honoree, Modern Drummer Magazine’s Hall of Fame Award, & is in Rolling Stone’s Top 5 Drummers of All Time! Terry has been touring as a solo artist since the mid 90’s, and has been mentioned as an influence by every drummer under the sun. He’s also known for utilizing a drum kit the size of the Sistine Chapel.
Gearing up for a tour consisting of twenty dates in North America starting in mid August 2018, Terry was recently interviewed by Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf and discussed his approach to improvisation on stage, several aspects of his career with and without Frank Zappa, and what would drive him to join a band again after so many years as a solo artist.
