Chicago prog rockers Fire Garden have announced that drummer Jimmy Keegan of Spock’s Beard will handle all drummer for the upcoming sophomore album. Zee of Fire Garden had this to say:
Today is the special post as you might have figured out who is the featured drummer on the upcoming record
Yes it is one and only Jimmy Keegan from Spock’s Beard. What a gentleman I met him only for a day and found him absolutely professional and down to earth person. It’s a great honor and pleasure to work with and believe me he smokes the drums on this record specially the 10 minute epic is a treat to listen.
I visited LA in October to record drums at Rich Mouser Studio, Rich has famously worked with many Neal Morse, Transatlantic, Spock’s Beard and many great Prog and Rock bands. It was a great experience working with both of them and the recording is sounding way better than anything I have previously done. So stay tuned there are many surprises and cool stuff coming your way.
