Chad Wackerman Biography

A phenomenally skillful jazz and rock drummer, Chad's professional career began in 1978 with the Bill Watrous band. Since then he has amassed a remarkable body of work including a seven year association with Frank Zappa, with whom he toured the USA and Europe and recorded 26 albums including the London Symphony recordings. He has also recorded 6 albums and toured with guitar legend Allan Holdsworth, played on the 'One Voice' album and video with Barbra Streisand, and recorded albums and toured with artists as diverse as Steve Vai, Andy Summers, Men At Work,Ed Mann, Albert Lee, Colin Hay, Dweezil Zappa and Tom Grant. Chad has also toured with James Taylor, John Patitucci , Joe Sample, Banned From
Utopia and The World Drummers Ensemble (Bill Bruford, Luis Conte, Dou Dou Ndiaye Rose and Chad Wackerman) and most recently toured the USA with another ex Zappa drummer-Terry Bozzio.

As a band leader and composer Chad has three critically acclaimed CDs titled 'Forty Reasons' and 'The View' and his latest release 'Scream' . Chad has written music for the television show 'The Dennis Miller Show', as well as composing music for Allan HoldsworthÕs 'Secrets' , 'Wardenclyffe Tower' and 'Sixteen Men of Tain' CDs.

ChadÕs drumming combines the power and conviction of rock with the sensitivity and finesse of jazz. His playing is remarkably free of predictable patterns and licks, relying instead on invention and interplay with the musicians around him.

His new band, 'The Chad Wackerman Group', features musicians:

Leon Gaer (bass), Daryl Pratt (midi vibes) and James Muller (guitar).

great book, fast service, very smooth transaction
The book "Hi-hat excersises for the contemporary drummer" by Chad Wackerman is an exceptional tool in building independence gradually with the final goal to play interesting beats incorporating 2 hi-hats. The really good thing about this book is that it begins with really easy excersises and very gradually takes you to more advanced ones. A great book for anyone interested in building independence with two hi-hats.
