Jose Medeles is the owner of the well known vintage drum shop in Portland, OR called Revival Drum Shop and he is also the author of The Stoic Drummer. Oh, and that’s not all ... Jose is also one of the members of 1939 Ensemble. So of those three topics that I could explore with Jose, I chose the middle one. In fact, it was because of The Stoic Drummer that I caught a glimpse of what Jose might be like to have on the show as a guest. We use this book as our reference point to this wandering conversation that dips heavily into some topics concerning who we are. Why do we play drums? What are our thoughts? What is fear? How do we nourish ourselves with self love? These are all questions that I wanted to thoroughly examine with Jose … and we did. May this episode refresh your perspective, open your mind and heart, and make you smile and feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for having the gift of drumming.
