Randy Black (Drummer for Primal Fear, Bif Naked, Annihilator, Rebellion, DuskMachine) is conducting his first ever U.S. drum clinic May 5th , 2014 presented by Vic’s Drum Shop in Chicago between dates on Primal Fears current U.S. tour. The following night you’ll be able to catch him performing live with Primal Fear at Mojoes in Joliet, Illinois.

Randy Black is well known as a seasoned professional live and studio musician known for his technical precision, symmetric cymbal set up (Including Hi-hats and Rides), and ambidextrous playing style; Randy is sure to amaze in this intimate event.

Randy will be performing with his personal drum set used on tour, giving attendees a chance to take a close look at his setup and the instruments he uses.

There will be a chance to meet Randy following his clinic along with purchasing his specially priced Hudson Limited double DVD instruction video, currently only available in the US at the Vic’s Drum Shop location.

Randy has recorded and played with: Bif Naked, Annihilator, Rebellion, DuskMachine, & Primal Fear.
