Roy Burns

Roy Burns became famous as a big band drummer in his early twenties performing with legendaries Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, andWoody Herman. In the 1960’s he concentrated on studio work and freelancing in the New York City area. He played for a number of top TV shows such as the Merv Griffin Show and the Tonight Show, and led his own jazz group that performed regularly at such NYC clubs as The Metropole and Birdland. Roy was one of the very first Artist-Clinician Performers in the music industry. His background as a drummer, teacher, author and studio musician made him an ideal teacher/performer. In many instances, a Roy Burns clinic was the first one ever attended by young drummers in the U.S. and internationally. Thousands of drummers read his Concepts column in Modern Drummer Magazine. It was one of the most successful columns in the history of the magazine and ran for an unprecedented 12 years.
