Find out which contemporary music has caught Billy’s attention these days (it may shock you!). Billy also answers questions from the live chat: some of which we feature in this episode: “Does your approach differ today from forty years ago?” and, “How important is it to stay physically fit to maintain those amazing chops?” Billy Also talks about his new CD, “Billy Cobham & Frankfurt Radio Big Band.”

NOTE: Please excuse the echo/delay on Billy’s voice. The information is valuable enough to listen past it and it does subside.

Get your band face on and discover how to work better as a team with Rhythm Section Musicians!


In his first Drum Talk TV interview shot back stage at the TAMA 40th anniversary celebration, Billy Cobham reflects on gear and music, and his brand new CD.  Billy tells us what he thinks is the most innovative thing TAMA has done in the last 40 years.

Dan also asks Billy to give us his perspective on the music Mahavishnu Orchestra created in the early 70’s, which is still way ahead of its time. You’ll hear Billy’s views on why some people are so critical about other drummers who use huge drum kits.  And finally, learn all about Billy’s Skeleton Coast project (which was just out at the time of filming).
