CHRISTMAS COVER: "Run Rudolph Run" by Chuck Berry

It's that time of year again, folks! The Holiday Season is upon us and in full effect! I'd like to wish all my Jewish friends a very happy Hannukah, and my Christian friends a very special and Merry Christmas! I hope everyone else, at some point in their life, at the very least, has an honest conversation with the Lord, Jesus Christ. I know for a long long time, He was not for me. But earlier this year, I found I could not ignore Him any longer. He spoke to me, and I listened. I don't want to make this a religious post, but 'tis the season.

In any case, I wasn't planning on doing a Christmas Drum Cover this year, but when your firstborn daughter makes a request...well, everything else must be dropped and wishes must be granted. So, here is my cover of Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run" as seen in my little girl's favorite movie at the moment, "Home Alone." She's two-and-a-half, going on fourteen, BTW (her words).

ALSO: This is my first cover using my new PAISTE cymbal setup!!! You'll see two covers after this one that I recorded prior to getting my new cymbals, but then any new covers after that will be all Paiste. I'll also be doing a review of these cymbals soon! So be on the lookout for that one.
