Pat Torpey and Billy Sheehan: Big Drums Jam

Last month we lost the great Mr. Big drummer, Pat Torpey, due to complications from Parkinson’s disease. His music, of course, will live on forever.

Here’s an incredible jam taken from the drummer’s instructional video, Big Drums, featuring bandmate Billy Sheehan tearing it up. It’s no wonder the duo’s musical connection helped propel Mr. Big into stardom.

Their groove locks in immediately and doesn’t waver, no matter what explosive fills they throw at each other.
