Appearing in the State of the Arts studio with his full drum kit, Morello begins with one of the most famous drum solos of all time, from “Take Five.” At the age of 72, it left him breathing hard–but he goes on to give a great interview about his life and career, plus one of the more unusual drumming demonstrations you’ll see anywhere.
Joe Morello died ten years after this appearance, in 2011 at his home in Irvington, New Jersey.
