Guest: Eric Valentine – Drummer and Instructor on PossibleChops.com

Eric Valentine has always enjoyed performing with different people, so going from Patti LaBelle to former Toto six-stringer Steve Lukather wasn’t really a challenge for him, it was just another gig. “When I was growing up,” Valentine says, “I listened to a lot of different kinds of music. I would watch videos and really listen. When I study material I try to respect it for what it is.”
