Great programme on drummers by Stewart Copeland on @BBCFOUR ‘On Drums’.
Making me think of how good @CraigGillMMT was and the other great Manchester drummers I’ve worked with.

Enjoyed “On Drums” with Stewart Copeland. The Sheila E segment definitely the most important - the thing that separates great musicians is almost indefinable, the “ghost notes” and what happens in the space between notes and beats.
On Franks show this Sunday 7-10pm ‘3’s the Magic Number’ guest Neil Morrisey star of stage & screen + Frank chars with Stewart Copeland the groove behind the band ‘The Police’ talking about his new T.V show that starts tonight BBCFour🤘🏽@frankflc3@funlovincrims@UncleFrankBand
Really enjoyed #ondrums with the great Stewart Copeland. #bbc4. Such enthusiasm passion & talent with all the drummers. Brilliant.
So glad my 8 yr old nephew is learning the drums, and even happier he lives 50 miles away 😉
If you want more @copelandmusic following On Drums...Stewart Copeland! check out his UK tour, where he'll be playing with a marauding horde of Orcs! Oh wait, an orchestra. Sorry. https://t.co/dNpR8x6VjO
@copelandmusic Loved On drums...Stewart Copeland tonight. Fascinating insight into the story of drumming. Great to see Stewart taking/playing with the likes of Sheila E and Taylor Hawkins. Two of my other favourites are Steve Jansen and Budgie. All hail the drummers 🥁
it's tragic how unappreciated percussionists are. most kids gravitate toward drumming from an early age. it's primal. anyway, watch 'on drums: stewart copeland' on that thar #bbc4 (iplayer). it kicks bottom.
@LukeHaines_News Stewart Copeland is under the misapprehension of a whole lot of things in life, mainly that anyone takes him or his opinions seriously. The type of bloke that has you checking the exits the moment he enters a room.
@OwainWynEvans Evening Owain.
Did you watch the programme on BBC 4 with Stewart Copeland just now ? Fascinating stuff.
Stewart has always been my favourite drummer/ percussionist, so many different styles.
Enjoyed Stewart Copeland on Drums on BBC Four - I’ve always thought he was a great drummer. Ringo Starr usually gets stick from all quarters but his style was massively appreciated by Stewart & Chad Smith from RHCP
"LANDLORD" was The Police's first single, and it was recorded with original guitarist Henri Padovani before Andy Summers became a member of the band. It was co-written by Stewart Copeland and Sting.
Fantastic prog, loved the history, analysis and passion, as Stephen Morris says, drumming is good for you, quite right. Guitar, Drum and Bass, Series 1: 1. On Drums... Stewart Copeland!: https://t.co/J427GznHUG via @BBCiPlayer
Stewart Copeland’s documentary on BBC4 tonight was fantastic. So many great songs included in the programme including This Fats Domino song from 1950 highlighting Earl Palmer’s backbeat. https://t.co/sumtHcPolp
The BBC4 drumming programme was a mixed bag. Stewart Copeland is a great choice but ironically his regatta de blanc style of reggae not mentioned. Also, Metal drumming which isn’t my taste but I appreciate is technically significant. Zep fan of old but too much Bonham.
On drums...Stewart Copeland! was perfect documentary journalism creating wide fascination by the curiosity of specific detail. Percussion, backbeat & drums will never feel the same. And no drummers exploded!
