    Default Joe Porcaro Passed Away Yesterday

    Sadly, Joe Porcaro has died. Most probably know him through his son, Jeff Porcaro, legendary drummer of past, but Joe was not only a fine drummer himself, he had a major contribution to the drumming world through his teaching at Percussion Institute of Technology (P.I.T.) which would later just be called "Musician's Institute" and also through Los Angeles College of Music. Rest in Peace Mr. Porcaro.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
