Episode 61 – Ralph Rolle

This week on PODAROONEY, I talk to Ralph Rolle. Ralph is the drummer with Nile Rodger’s Chic. I met him in the Central Hotel in Dublin for a chat last September when he was over to perform and do a cooking demonstration at the Electric Picnic music festival because not only is Ralph a drummer, he is also a cook. He is a cooker of cookies to be precise; Soul Cookies to be even more precise. Ralph has drummed with Prince, Al Green, Chaka Khan, Sting and Lady Gaga to name but a few but he still takes time out to teach and give advice to young up and coming musicians. I saw him do a drum clinic at BIMM last week and he gave some sound advice about how to make it in this business called “Show”. I took a lot from listening to and hanging out with this wonderful warm hearted man. Thank you to Anne McCoy for putting us in touch. Check out Ralph at www.ralphrolle.com
