Miami, Florida (September 18, 2018)Frangioni Media is pleased to announce the release of the new book, Crash: The World’s Greatest Drum Kits, published by Insight Editions. The new book features a visual journey through the world of drumming, capturing drum kits from musicians such as Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, Carmine Appice, Neil Peart, Buddy Rich, Peter Criss, Alex Van Halen, Carl Palmer, and many more. From toms to cymbals to the booming bass, each kit is examined with loving care and the kit’s history is outlined for the reader, and features photos from classic rock photographer Mark Weiss, and included a Foreword by Carl Palmer and an Afterword by Eric Singer.

Written by award-winning technologist David Frangioni, Crash reflects his varied experience with drummers and musicians “If drums are the heartbeat of music,” says Frangioni, “This book is intended to be the heartbeat of drumming.”

A sound expert, Frangioni started his first MIDI consulting business at the age of 16 and has had a very successful career as a studio builder, technologist & recording engineer for some of the world’s leading artists. Frangioni has owned several successful audio companies that build everything from recording studios to home theaters to sound systems to complete turnkey technical facilities in the entertainment business.

Crash’s collection of images are accompanied by commentary about the special characteristics of each kit as well as its significance to rock history, and the book offers first-hand accounts from some of the biggest drummers in music.

“Crash showcases many incredible drummers and hundreds of hit songs, from all the way back fifty years to present day, with many photos that have never been seen before,” says Frangioni.

The drums take center stage in this first-ever collected look into some of the most famous drum kits of all time. Crash: The World’s Greatest Drum Kits, is available for purchase at Insight Editions, Frangioni Media, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
