GODSMACK's SHANNON LARKIN: 'Behind The Player' DVD Now Available

Shannon Larkin is the explosive drummer of the band GODSMACK. His distinct approach to drumming and ballistic stage presence have made him a dominant force in arenas and in the studio.

In his IMV "Behind the Player" DVD, Larkin offers an intimate behind-the scenes look at his life as a professional musician including rare photos and video footage. Larkin then gives in-depth lessons for how to play "Straight out of Line" and "Voodoo" by GODSMACK on drums and jams the tracks with GODSMACK bassist Robbie Merrill.

"Video Tab" shows exactly how Shannon plays the two tracks. The video-game-style animated tablature is similar to Guitar Hero, but shows how to play the tracks for real.

Get your copy at Guitar Center or www.IMVdvd.com.

The producers of the IMV series donate $.25 from the sale of each DVD to Little Kids Rock, an organization that gets instruments in the hands of underprivileged kids.

A trailer for Larkin's IMV "Behind the Player" DVD can be viewed below.

Shannon has been drumming for 25 years. He has built his career playing with bands such as: WRATHCHILD AMERICA, SOULS AT ZERO, UGLY KID JOE, BACK ALLEY GATORS, FEAR OF GOD, Glenn Tipton, VANILLA ICE, POUNDHOUND, GLASSJAW, AMEN, SNOT, CANDLEBOX, ANOTHER ANIMAL and current band for the past six years, GODSMACK.

With more than 20 records recorded, he is now preparing to write the new GODSMACK album, due out in 2010.
