It’s always a good day when I get to crack open a cold beer and hang out with an old friend and solid drummer. Chuck Keeping, the drummer for Big Wreck, was recently over at the studio. We played some drums, fired up the BBQ and had great conversation about his life and drumming influences. Playing with Big Wreck has been Chuck’s primary focus, although there is much more to his musicianship and career. Aside from everything that comes along with being Big Wreck’s drummer, we spoke about fatherhood (both of us being new dads), musical heroes, memorable life experiences as well as his experiences on the road. Watch the full interview below.
Chuck Plays “Who’s That Drummer?”
In the 2nd video we (and you) play a game called “Who’s That Drummer?”. You and Chuck will hear a 30 second clip of an isolated drum track from a popular song. These drums-only tracks are from hit songs by many legendary bands and artists. You would be amazed how recognizable they are. Chuck will have 30 seconds for each clip, to guess the song, the artist and who the drummer is. Each correct answer is worth one point. Can guess the answers before Chuck can?
Aside from his work in the Canadian rock band Big Wreck, Chuck is also known for playing with artists like Suzie Mcneil, Fathead, Anjulie, Marshall Dane, Lee Oskar, Johnny Reid and Jeff Healey. He is also well known for his work as a session drummer for major labels such as Sony & BMG. Chuck endorses Sonor drums, Zildjian cymbals, Vic Firth drumsticks and Remo drumheads.
