David Garibaldi has been an inspiration to many drummers and musicians for over 40 years. I remember the first time I saw him play in 1991 with Tower of Power. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and after the performance, I went to Tower Records and bought all of the TOP albums I could find.
Drumeo creates high quality videos of the top drummers. Even if you are not a drum set player, take some time and watch this video.
David began playing drums professionally at 17 years old and joined Tower of Power at the age of 24 in 1970. Not too long after, he became one of the most sought after drummers in the industry. He has featured in hundreds of songs by notable artists and has also appeared on live TV and films. David won the R&B/Funk drummer award from Modern Drummer magazine for five consecutive years from 1980 to 1985, and again in 2003.
