This is a must check-out coffee table photography book for every drummer and fans of drums & drummers! Photographer Jules Follett and her Fotos By Folletts team have captured the personality of over 500 drummers (I am truly honored to be a small part of this amazing accomplishment) Not only are there amazing photos by Jules and company, also included are legendary shots by the late Lissa Wales. (Lissa was very well known & loved in the drumming community and left us too soon) It's very special & touching that Jules has dedicated the opening pages to Lissa with a special tribute to her photos. I highly recommend this beautiful art of work! For more info please visit [...] (or click above and buy one...or two:)

You don't have to be a drummer to appreciate the beautiful photography and in-depth artist bios in "Sticks 'n' Skins", but if you ARE a drummer, you'll definitely want to own this book! Jules Follett and Jamie Pastor have done an outstanding job capturing the spirit of drummers of all styles, playing drums and the drumming community, in this book. There is also a section dedicated to photographer Lissa Wales, who the drumming community lost in 2005. Lissa was loved by everyone in the drumming community and her work is memorialized in a beautiful tribute at the front of the book.

"Sticks 'n' Skins" is chock full (over 500 pages!) of drummers and percussionists from around the world and every style of music, including legends and drumming stars such as Buddy Rich, Tony Williams, Steve Gadd, Vinnie Colaiuta, Ringo Starr, Ginger Baker, Charlie Watts, Tre Cool, Tommy Lee, Simon Phillips, Joey Kramer, Jeff Porcaro, Jim Keltner, Chad Smith (to name only a few). It also includes behind the scenes photos from Drum Industry events such as PASIC, the Modern Drummer Festival, Montreal Drumfest, The 2008 Zildjian Drummers Achievement Awards and NAMM, as well as the movers and shakers within the Drum Industry. I received my copy in October and still haven't read it from cover to cover - there's just so much in it! You really need to own this book!

This beautiful book of photography truly speaks to the drummer in your heart. Each page contains an enlightening glimpse into the world of one person's unique story of his or her passion for the instrument of the drum and/or drum set. Over 400 drummers are included, and while you may possibly be able to think of a few who do not grace a page, you just know all are included thanks to the overwhelming sense of community and brotherhood represented through the author's humbling approach. Jules Follett has not only accomplished a task far beyond vision with this amazingly well crafted "coffee table book of drummers," but she has gracefully dedicated the entire work to the memory of yet another photographer whom she only knew as her Guardian Angel... Lissa Wales, and included a complete section with some of Lissa's special timeless moments with more keepers of time. Congratulations to Jules on an adventure well taken, and to all who are fortunate enough to spend time enjoying its blessed contents. Anyone who has even a hint of a drummer in your heart will surely treasure this historical work of art for years to come.

If you appreciate art...any type of art...you will love this book...Sticks & Skins! Each photo is a work of art in itself. A step into an individual life of a dedicated musician and a leap into the drumming art form!
It is more than just reading the book or looking at pictures...it is an adventure into a unique world of passion...dedication...fun...entertainment...laughs...tears...and endless inspiration!
Jules has opened a portal to each heart of the drummer and the viewer to touch a common love for music. Everyone is a drummer...now you can be a part of a legacy.
With each drummer...search the internet and let Sticks & Skins take you on a journey you will enjoy for the rest of your life!!

Carlos, what a great review! I have recently seen the book and enjoyed it from cover to cover. Never before has any publication revealed so honestly the real motivation and sense of community shared by all of these great drum and percussion professionals and enthusiasts. Each one of them is a special brick in the drum and percussion community wall. Those who were featured in this book seemed to be there not because of their level of success in the profession but because they are the true representatives of this unique community called drumming.
The love, the effort, the dedication and the artistry put forth by Jules Follett and her staff is nothing short of amazing. Every great photo and inspiring story will immediately connect to the part of us longing to be involved and associated with a group that does something to serve a greater good.
Of all the ways one can find to be inspired to live life and enjoy every minute it, this is definitely one of them.
Hibbs

Sticks 'n' Skins is one of the finest photographic books on drumming and drummers that I have ever seen. Apart for the absolutely beautiful, artistic and pleasingly aesthetic feel of the book, it is an enormous repository of information about our art form, representing many genres of music and stylistically different drummers and percussionists and I believe it will be viewed as time passes, as an important historical document about the subject.
