Kent Hall – your song fucking rox

Kent Hall is our “professor on the drumkit”. Kind of a Jekyll and Hyde – he’ll go from “soft and beautiful” to “now let me rip your head off” on the songs, and make it look easy. I always think about Carlos Santana talking about Michael Shrieve during an interview where he says something like, “…he has a palette with all the colors”. That is Kent exactly. All the colors.

He’s not just a drummer either, he’s a badass songwriter in his own right, and we email demos back and forth all the time for each other’s listening pleasure.

So here is the last email I sent him in reply to his newest effort “Late Night Natural”:

“Subject: Kent Hall – your song fucking rox

it’s awesome. except maybe for the bit where you get really weird with the bleep bloop stuff, but what do I know.

my part sucks, sorry I played so poorly. maybe you could bring out some basic loops sometime and I could put something better down.

if u want to completely delete me for now, believe me I will not be offended.

I’m working on “Shadow of the Dream” it is turning into something really special. I think you’ll freak, but I need real drums.

and more cowbell.

and I keep trying to turn down the suck knob, but I think it’s broken”

It made me laugh.
