Gavin Harrison on David Letterman tonight!
23. Aug 2011 at 18:30
 
Gavin Harrison is the special musical guest on David Letterman tonight (Tuesday Aug. 23) as part of Letterman's second ever "drum solo week." As you may recall, Letterman's first drum week back in May included an appearance by, among others, Neil Peart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EL0cII74YYs
 
Last night's drummer was Tony Royster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF8JAYEGi4I
 
Wednesday night's drummer will be Stewart Copeland, followed by Dennis Chambers on Thursday.
 
cheers,
Stephen H

Wow thanks. Letterman might actually say "Porcupine Tree"? I never thought I'd see the day!

Letterman is delayed until 12am on parts of the east coast to cover the Earthquake story more. They've been covering it all day, I really don't think they need an extra half hour to repeat the same stories.
 
Regardless, hope everyone is ok that experienced the Earthquake. It was a first for me.

For those wondering: The show announcer introduced him simply as "drummer Gavin Harrison" or something of the like at the start of the show. Didn't mention PT at all. cry Hope Letterman will actually mention PT before he plays his solo. It's wonderful to see Gavin play here in the States on a major television network, but PT as a band needs some recognition here, too.

He killed it! Totally awesome.
 
Dave did introduce him as the drummer of PT. He showed his Circles album as well. Very cool.

Well Dave introduced Gav as the drummer for Porcupine Tree--he did not disappoint with his solo!  Dave showed the Circles CD with 05Ric and not a PT album (which is understandable since it's more a solo project).  Great seeing him showcased on network TV.

That was awesome. To hear 'Porcupine Tree' on network TV, was fantastic. Gavin did great and definitely had a huge smile on his face at the end.  
 
By the way; for the drummers out there, I think Gavin might have been using his new/prototype vic firth pro models. They were suppose to be out at NAMM '11, but for whatever reason were delayed.

Did anybody else read "He will be playing with the band", as stated on the PT official site, as indicating that he would be playing with Porcupine Tree?  I did and was disappointed there was no Tree...
 
Haven't seen any of the other drum soloists but I gather none of them played with their bands....

Just watched it on the DVR. Awesome!
 
He also did some things I'd never seen before.
 
1) placing the left stick tip on the snare and sliding the right stick down it
2) wetting his fingers and sliding them along the snare skin to change the pitch
3) vinyl tubbing connected to a tom to change the pressure inside and change the pitch
 
 
Has anyone else seen this before, by anyone?

Never seen anyone else do it, but Gav does this on Hatesong, on the Arriving Somewhere DVD.
