Sam Kelly In the press

It was a pleasure to be interviewed by Spike Webb, researching for his new book “Mad, Bad & Dangerous”. A great opportunity for me to re-cap on my drumming ‘experiences’ over the years and compare them with some of the other drummers that he also interviewed: Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Topper Headon (The Clash), Ian Mosley (Marillion), Kenney Jones (The Faces/The Who), Kevin Morris (Dr. Feelgood), Mel Gaynor (Simple Minds), Derrick McKenzie (Jamiroquai), Jon Moss (Culture Club).
