We posted awhile ago that Adrian would be featured in a new DVD, Wicked Beats, showcasing leassons on ska, rocksteady and reggae drumming. Adrian is interviewed in the DVD as well as some amazing footage from the last No Doubt tour is showcased. No Doubt fan Travis picked up the DVD and gave us a few new details on what’s on the DVD and mentions that it is worth picking up! The DVD is avialable on amazon.com for $22.49.
I’ve also noticed in the bottom left-hand corner of the DVD artwork I spotted Rock Steady!
I enjoyed watching the interview with Adrian Young. In that interview they discussed how Ska and Reggae is the foundation of No Doubts music. And Adrian said if he played straight rock drumming would be boring and that Ska and Reggae has made him a better drummer. In that DVD it shows a upclose stage cam footage of him playing UIA, but whats cool is the sound is edited so you only hear Adrians drums and Tonys bass. The DVD is well worth it. Great interview and footage of the 2009 tour.
Its about 15-20 minutes long. The only clips on YouTube of the Wicked Beats DVD are trailers and short previews. I Purchased the DVD on Amazon for about $15. It includes the drumming lessons, but also.has another section dedicated to interviews, one of which with Adrian Young. The man who created DVD must be friends with Adrian because in the interview he said he was with Adrian when he got the idea to do the DVD.
Adrian appears at :52 in the trailer above.
