A word from Virgil's webmaster, Jeppe Morgenthaler
Today is Virgil's 60th birthday. It means that Virgil has more than 57-years of unbelievable dedication to drumming and music under his belt, and for that, he is certainly worth celebrating.
Virgil's relentless pursuit to better himself is an inspiration to everyone who has ever worked with him, or witnessed his artistic output.
As a composer, he is artistically un-compromised and as a drummer he is a unique specimen, capable of things most people find impossible.
I hope you will join me alongside Travis Orbin, Marco Minnemann, (with Bryan Beller and Guthrie Govan) Thomas Lang, Dave Weckl and Vinnie Colaiuta, in wishing Virgil a very happy birthday.
Happy Birthday Virgil!
