Kenton Bell is a truly remarkable person. He has pledged his life to the drum/music industry since he was a teenager and has never looked back. Recently, on my blog we discussed his 20+ year career and while I discussed as much as possible in that blog article there was still more of Kenton to uncover and reveal, hence this podcast.
A lot of what we discuss in this episode isn't even necessarily about drums, in fact a lot of it is not about drums at all. Sure, we discuss his company KentonDRUMS in some detail and his relationships in the drum industry, but the heart of this conversation is about his sacrifices in his personal life to keep this whole thing running. He also talks about chasing your dreams with thoughtfulness, discipline and consistency. I would say Kenton is one of the most insightful and "Guru-like" people I have met in my life, even considering his young age.
Listen to this podcast to discover a very real and personal conversation about what it is like to be in "the biz" and some terrific insight on being heavily involved in the drum/music industry.
