Today is Nigel Olsson's birthday, and EJW hopes it is a great day for him.
One way fans can celebrate is by cast a vote for him in the one of the worlds most important drumming eventsthe Modern Drummer Readers Poll.
Longtime voters will notice that this year the magazine is suggesting nominees within each category. The modern music scene is incredibly complex, with drummers, artists, and bands often falling easily into a number of different styles. However, they are still providing for write-in votes, so if you dont see some names that youd like to have recognised, by all means, type them in (25 character limit)!
What's more, by voting, you can win a subscription to MD. Providing your name and address automatically makes you eligible for one of three free one-year subscriptions to Modern Drummer magazine.
Voting is open through February 15, 2011.
