Born to Drum
It happened in September, 1954 – and nearly 50 years later Frank Gibson Jr is as busy as ever. His website has downloadable musical examples and a biography, while the New Zealand Musician site has a recent interview done by Gordon Marr. The review is from the Auckland Star, 20 September 1954 – note the musicians also on that night: Frank Gibson Sr, Bobby Griffiths, Jim Warren, and the drag act Noel McKay. (The latter was good with or without his clothes, reported the Star.)
Below is a picture of Frank Jr (right) with his father Frank Gibson Sr. They are flanking the US drumming legend Louis Bellson. The image is from the MySpace page of the shop opened by Frank Sr, Drum City.
