The Chicago Drum Show 2013 (Wherein A Funky Drummer Laid Down A Rock Shuffle So Deep You Could Drive A Semi Through It, Or Something)

"The Chicago Drum Show is the world's largest and longest-running event of it's kind," its producers say.

"It is a swap-meet, a drum expo, and an entertainment event. There are clinics, demonstrations, raffles, classes, and over 30,000 square feet of exhibits: New, used, vintage and custom drums, cymbals, and related accessories."

This year's Chicago Drum Show was held at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles earlier this month. Here are some highlights.

1. Rick Latham Clinic.

"In this clip . . . we catch some of Rick Latham's clinic, in which the ever-funky drummer revealed two sides of his impressive skill set. He first lays down a rock shuffle so deep that you could drive a semi through it, then segues into a flurry of chops at the end, just to prove he can do it."
