ROB INTERVIEWED ON THE TRAP SET

31st October sees Rob as featured guest on the wonderful podcast The Trap Set.

This is a great series of interviews with famous drummers, which has previously included such luminaries as Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland, Bill Bruford to name but a few…

“Rob Ellis possesses the dynamic touch of a concert musician, the ferocity of a punk rocker, and the compositional sense of a New Music luminary; but it’s Rob’s extraordinary capacity for musical empathy that make him the perfect collaborator for iconic songwriters ranging from PJ Harvey to Marianne Faithfull. Rob tells Joe about his early memories in 1960s California; his Navy officer father, whose death at an early age cast a shadow on Rob’s personal development; attending an elite public (boarding) school, wherein he was head choir boy; helping Polly Harvey become PJ Harvey; and the process of mending strained relationships with his family.”
