Steve Gadd Signed and Framed Drum Head
Take home this framed drum head, signed by Steve Gadd.
Steve's Uncle, a drummer in the army, encouraged him to take drum lessons at the age of seven; by the time Steve was 11 he had sat in with Dizzy Gillespie.
After the army, Gadd gigged and worked with a big and in Rochester. 1972, formed a trio with Tony Levin and Mike Holmes, going to New York with it.
The trio fizzled out, but Gadd began to work extensively as a studio musician. In the 1970's and 1980's, Gadd toured internationally, recorded with Paul Simon and with Al DiMeola's Electric Rendezvous Band.
It was as a studio musician that Steve came into his own and worked with such musicians as Chick Corea, Paul Simon, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, Bob James, Nancy Wilson and Joe Cocker to name a few.
Today Steve is just as busy as he ever was, spending time in the studio and on the road with Eric Clapton, James Taylor, and his own group; STEVE GADD BAND.

Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Our life-changing support for young people before, during and after cancer means they get the specialised care they need, in a welcoming environment. We work with individuals to help them live as normal a life as possible, building their self-esteem and connecting with others living through the same experience.
Every young person with cancer should have access to this kind of care. Right now, we need more specialised nurses across the UK to make sure they do.
Teenage Cancer Trust relies entirely on voluntary donations to protect and grow our vital services for young people. Help every young person with cancer get the specialised support they desperately need.
