Chick Webb drum lesson - part 2

Another time I went to see him, and I thought I'd hang out with him all night. Instead, he put me upstairs with a metronome, made that damn thing go at the slowest tempo you ever heard, and said, 'Roll to a hundred, and if you stop, I'll come upstairs and break your skull.'

- Art Blakey, Modern Drummer Interview, 1984, by Chip Stern
