107: Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms For Peace, Elliott Smith, Ultraista, REM)

Joey Waronker possesses a powerful groove and a gift for nuance and shading. These attributes–combined with a deep understanding of production and a knack for electronic percussion–are what distinguish him as one of the leading drummers of the modern paradigm. He tells Joe about growing up in a musical family; studying with the legendary Freddie Gruber; his love of the punk label, SST Records; overcoming his neuroses through therapy; and working with artists like Beck and REM. He also answers listener questions. Photo: Hirohisa Nakano
