Sterling was living in New York City as a child and happened to see a random guy in the lobby of his apartment one day holding a drumstick and cymbal bag. It turns out the random guy was Dennis Davis and was in town that night playing drums for David Bowie at Madison Square Garden!
In celebration of Vic Firth Company's 50th anniversary, we've spent an entire year celebrating Game-Changing Moments in drumming -- including yours! To everyone who shared a story with us this year, thank you! Drumming is a shared experience and we are all brothers and sisters! Your stories have inspired us to continue making the best sticks possible and to continue changing the game for drummers everywhere.
We received thousands of amazing stories this year. Although it was difficult to choose only one story, we're happy to announce that Joe Russomano is our grand prize winner in the Game-Changing Moments contest!Read Joe's Story
