Welcome to the relaunch of The Best Drummer In The World!
We hope you like the new look and feel of the site. And when I say we, I mean we’re now a WE.
For the entire time I’ve had this site (almost 10 years, now in its 4th major phase), it’s been me fumbling my way through programming and reading and trying to figure out how to make it look cool and work in some way that makes sense.
But it’s all been done by me and I think I suck at computer stuff. It would take me weeks to edit stuff. It never looked right, etc.
I can’t tell you the number of times I would spend weeks rebuilding a new version of the site only to upload it and have it erase all my files and a million nightmares that I never dreamt of when I decided I wanted a website called The Best Drummer In The World.
Well, I met this amazing dude named Nick. He’s an amazing photographer.(Check out his photography site here http://www.nicoletavenue.com/ ) Created a super successful video game. Built an iPhone app! And, he’s a drummer.
I feel that I’ve found a missing link in this project and I feel the look and feel of the new site which you’re now looking at is the result. He rebuilt it in a week and with a couple of backend tweaks moved the site up to page 1 in Google search rankings. He rules and I’m so thankful to have found a kindred spirt who loves all things drums and drumming.
With Nick now handing all the backend stuff and working together on the look, feel, and functionality of the site, it is allowing me to get out and do more interviews, review shows and recordings, and do all of the million things I had envisioned for the site.
We really hope you enjoy the new era of the site and we hope you continue to use us as a resource for all things related to cool drum stuff.
The editors (Ian and Nick)
