The big news this week is that Virgil is now officially playing DW drums. After 12 productive years at Pearl, that relationship came to an end early last week.
“I appreciated my time playing Pearl, but it felt like the time was right to embrace a new sound, and a fresh start. I’m thrilled at the possibilities with my new instrument both in the studio and on stage. I will be playing DW for the first time on my upcoming tour in Europe.”
All of you musos in Los Angeles won't want to miss out on this one since Allan Holdsworth and the band rarely plays LA. They will be playing at King King in Hollywood on August 26th, 2014 as part of their west coast tour. Featuring Allan Holdsworth (guitar), Jimmy Haslip (bass), and Virgil Donati (drums).
