Gear Review: Big Fat Snare Drum

Tom Tom is so excited to share its Politics issue. With nationalism on the rise around the world, we wanted to showcase musicians who are doing something to create a better, more inclusive world. Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot told us what Putin and Trump have in common, former Second Lady and drummer Tipper Gore gave us hope for the future. We also interviewed author Laina Dawes about the experience of being othered in heavy music, Georgia Anne Muldrow about the ongoing struggle for human rights, and Brits Peaness about taking a stand on global warming with their tunes.
