This is our second drummer, The Legendary Jim Chapin. If you have had the honor of seeing or meeting Jim, You know he is one of the greats. A true pioneer of the drums, I call him Pa Pa Chapin. "I can". I had the honor of studying with him in the early 80's, Right after I left KISS. I got to know a lot more about the drums, But also about myself and I really needed that at a time in my life. Jim gave me that. Harry Chapin, Jim's son, A great performer, songwriter (Cat's in the Cradle) who past on. He died in a car wreck, Not his fault. Jim really inspired me he was so strong over it. I really love that man. Jim is one of the last of the greats left. One of the lessons I remember is the Moeller's method, and pull outs and oney and twoy. Jim had "How to play drums books" out before everyone - Minus 1 and 2 are brilliant. If they are every out there - Get Them. What Jim can do on a practice pad some wish they can do on the drums. This is the guy who got me on the pad. Look into Jim Chapin, He will open up a new world of drums for you.
God Bless Papa Chapin,
