Michael's Prog Drum Blog is a blog about Prog Drumming. The purpose here is the discussion of drumming in Prog music, be that Prog Rock, Prog Jazz, Prog Metal, or anything else I decide is worth calling prog!

Here's a cool thing: The Liber Chronicarum or Nuremberg Chronicle. It's one of the best documented early printed books to incorporate text and images, predating Durer's Apocolypse. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel in 1493, it is a bible paraphrase and history of the world from creation to the final judgement. It's chock full of bizarre theology and illustrations. It was clearly a strong influence on the Retablo de Ciudad Rodrigo, particularly this image which has direct correlations in Bartolome's Chaos panel. You should do an image search, I think you'll like it.
I am a Prog drummer. I have a Prog band in which I do the Prog drumming. I also teach drumming and write articles about drumming and teaching.
Oh, I'm also an artist and an art teacher as well as a music teacher and it all kind of gets mixed up sometimes so you may have to put up with stuff besides prog drumming because, after all, this is my blog and I can do whatever I want.
