But then we started talking and he found out that I was also a drummer, we talked and talked.

Jennnie, I understand that you’ve put your drumming career on hold to raise your daughter. The only formal training I had was with a drummer named Ronnie Ciago. She knows that I’m either listening to the tunes at the hotel or I’m in the back of the tour bus practicing. What gear are you using? I was just lucky enough to get involved. I’ve gotten offers to go out on the road but I’ve had to turn them down for now, until our daughter gets old enough to travel.

We slept on the floor on a roll out mattress for three years. Performing every night in front of 50, to 60, billy is an amazing feeling. What’s life like with two drummers in the family?


How did you develop that skill? How much freedom do you have to play what you want in the show? I can remember banging on pots and pans at a very young age. For now, Billy’s the one who’s out there making a career.

My playing does change as the tour progresses. I love funk-fushion stuff and I also miss playing the blues.

We weren’t going to dump her off on a relative or grandparent and take off. Do you have any specific drumming goals you have yet to accomplish? But we’re always conscious of our daughter and our family and that comes first. I learned how to read and was introduced to linear patterns, Salsa, Reggae, Swing, and a lot of great books.

Do you play or practice any differently as a result of the size of the venues you play? Plus, over the years, I did my share of gigs — mostly top bands — that played with some sort of programmed or sequenced tracks. I started playing rather late in life. It biloy Justin’s idea. I couldn’t do it with out Jenie, She understands where I’m coming from with my obsession to the drums. It really gives you a chance to show off. But the actual patterns are improvised, we just have fun with it and play off of each other, and some nights it works and some it doesn’t.

Billy, is it tough being out on the road away from home for such long periods of time? We were playing in a club that Prince used to own. I know that there are a lot of aahbaugh young drummers out today. When I was about fourteen, I went to a company Christmas party for my dad.

So I should be doing that in November. I love Phil Gould. Billy was playing drums and I was playing percussion.

We have a soundproof practice room now but before we had our daughter, when we were first married, we had a two bedroom apartment and each room was gutted and had a drumset in it.

For example, ashaugh trade four bar phrases and then two bar phrases and ashbwugh play the last four bar phrase together or something like that.

I think it was just in my blood. I’m not out there messin’ around and meeting other women or partying. Was Jenie your wife at the time?

I know my time will come, eventually. As a matter of fact, he called me about his new album recently and I’m hoping I get the chance to ashbauhg it.

Billy Ashbaugh Bio

What type of music do you enjoy listening to? I interviewed Billy backstage in his dressing room at the Modern Drummer Festival and his wife, Jenie, who also happens to be a drummer joined us, too. I had to force myself to do this solo today. She can ashbahgh and then speak to the girls on a level that I can’t.
