Laus Deo Semper.

The Michael Jackson Tribute mini-series is me paying my respects to one of the most influential musicians to ever have lived. I absolutely LOVED jamming along to these song by MJ, the grooves are an incredible amount of fun to play :)


I have to emphasize, I know calling this a "cover" is wrong, seeing as I only PARTLY stayed true to the song's drums (or lack thereof), through the WHOLE song I play some variations of the beats, phrasing and fills, since 99% of what I play is improvised. Even though I have done my fair share of session and studio drumming, that has little to zero effect on these video's, I kind of see them as live performances. I'm NOT aiming to be accurate to the original drums, I'm just aiming to enjoy myself. And I thoroughly succeeded in doing that, might I add :)
