With guests like Darrel Higham, the Di Maggio Bros, Steve Hooker, etc., this really does swing, and track 11 is the Simon and Garfunkel song! Rick Hollow works in the tradition of 40’s and 50’s Big Band and Swing drummers with tireless professsionalism and has been recognized for his ability to compose and produce high quality songs with a certain feeling for forgotten recording details from the past. This cat has successfully experienced every possible part of the music business as drummer for several rockin‘ bands, tour booker, DJ, A&R manager, label owner and is well known as one of the most passionate workers in the Rock’n’roll field. Listening to this man playing his Ludwig Sparkle Kit the audience feels that Rick knows how to beat and brush the skins with his unmistakeable cool-as-heck style. ‚Millenium bop‘ should be a monster bopper in the clubs if there’s any justice…
