Weird Al's Drummer Gets the New CD
Thu., Jun. 4. 2015 9:59am EDT
Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, who's been "Weird Al" Yankovic's drummer for 35 years now, got his copy of our new CD, Music Is As Music Does, this past Sunday at Al's concert in Greensburg PA. Our pal Evan Gross hand-delivered it.
Bermuda played drums on seven tracks on our Biblical Graffiti CD, which, like Music Is As Music Does, had a white cover and initially came in a numbered and autographed format. We've released 28 CDs in 23 years (40 CDs, if you count the Classics series), and those are the only two CDs like that, so it's fitting that he got one of the first copies.
Not only that, since recording with us in 1999, he's been kind enough to personally send us new Al CDs as they've been released. The least we could do was send an ApologetiX ambassador to him with our latest effort.
We posted a photo of Bermuda with the new CD (and Evan) on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Apologetix on June 2. If you don't follow ApologetiX on Facebook (we try to post something every day), you miss out on a lot of fun facts and photos. You really ought to do something about that!
