Welcome to episode 3 of the Al’s Drum School podcast hosted by Alex Moody and, on occasion, co-hosted by Jordan Whittingham.

This week is a mini-episode where Alex sits down to discuss what it means to him, and what it may mean to you, to call yourself a musician. Having recently stopped touring to focus more on his family and his business pursuits Alex has had to face the feeling of no longer being a touring musician. But does that mean he’s no longer a musician in any sense? These thoughts, struggles & contemplations are covered in this mini-episode. Enjoy!
