Last month I shared the nominations for the 2nd Annual Drumeo “Drummer Of The Year” Awards and in that post I mentioned that I had not heard of it before publishing that post. I also pointed out that a wide variety of awards show rundowns are shared over on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” since that lets me post a wider variety of them. Now we are back on the Drumeo topic as they just recently revealed the winners in a streamed video on YouTube so if you scroll on down below you will see all of the winners of the awards as well as those honored with some special legacy awards. The streaming cermony was hosted by Jared Falk and Dave Atkinson and a few others. Here now are your winners for “Drummer Of The Year”.
Drummer Of The Year:
Mark Guiliana WINNER – Chad Smith
Readers of “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” website know full well that I like to post a wide number of award shows over there and feature both the nominations and winners list when the time comes for the big ceremony and reveals. Every so often this applies to the PiercingMetal side of the fence as well. This is usually relegated to the geekier side of things with Comic Book Industry or Anime Awards and believe me I love that stuff so say geeky with absolute pride. The website Drumeo was very new to me but when I learned that they held an awards ceremony for drummers I knew that I had to include it as one of the features here on the website. Though not active these days, I am a drummer and still get the impulse to play when time and the means allows so this was a fun one for me to include. Let’s take a look at the nominations.
Drummer Of The Year: This award will go to a drummer who checked all the boxes with recording projects, live/video events, online presence, and all-around excellence in their contributions to music.
