593 – George Sluppick: It’s all in the Music

11/30/2020
George Sluppick likes to keep it simple. As a man who’s made his career laying down 2 & 4 behind the kit, this simplicity is what keeps the phone ringing. But let’s not confuse simplicity for a lack of depth and knowledge. Simplicity doesn’t mean stupidity.
