"It's great to see Simon break down, play and describe these legendary drum parts to these classic songs. Fun to watch indeed. Well done, mate!" - Todd Sucherman, Drummer for Styx

Reviews from Fans and Friends:
“Simon Kirke has been involved with some of the finer rock grooves that have lasted from the 70's and 80's. His deceptively simple playing has been the cornerstone of some classic songs from those great days. This DVD shows how HE did it, and allows you to possibly follow in his footsteps.
If it were that simple of course we'd have a whole new breed of Kirkes, Bonhams, and Moons etc.... If you listen and learn maybe you could be that good.....” – Phil Collins
"Simon Kirke is one of my favorite drummers! What better way to learn these Classics than from the man himself. I loved it!" - Chad Smith, Drummer for The Red Hot Chili Peppers
"The Rockstarz DVD featuring Simon Kirke is a mixture of FUN, Entertainment and a Great Learning Experience made for the NOW generation. I especially like the Rockstarz Rockbox! That is an awesome feature. I recommend this DVD for any drummer who wants to learn how to play Bad Company songs from the MASTER of Bad Company; Simon Kirke" - Carmine Appice, Legendary Drummer for Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart and Ozzy Osbourne
"I can't say enough about this DVD!! Beautifully put together. Simon shows his amazing techniques playing 5 Bad Company songs and "All Right Now" in his very first DVD from Rockstarz . Folks, this DVD is long overdue and well worth having in your Bad Company collection even if you don't play drums. He is solid as a rock. That's our Simon.
A perfect gift for the rock fan on your holiday list." - Lucy Piller Allrightnow.com
First off thanks for the idea and the great DVD. I emailed Simon when it arrived yesterday to tell him how great I thought it was going to be after I had previewed a little of it. I played along to it most of yesterday. Its outstanding!!! I am completely hooked. I am contacting you to ask you when you will be making more of these. I need more asap! - Anyway, selfishly wishing you more success.

I purchased a "Lessons From a Legend: Simon Kirke" DVD
from Amazon.com in Japan last week. I was very surprised that I can buy it here in Japan. The materials are great, especially the interview. The most impressive part was when Simon mentioned "played the drums along with a records from Jazz to Rock to keep the beat". The contents of six songs were fantastic and Simon's instructions were very easy to understand.
As Mrs. Lucy Piller saying that "Well worth having in your Bad Company collection even if you don't play drums" I agree with that! I don't play drums, but I love hearing the professionals playing. Eric S - Tokyo, Japan - Received October 25, 2006
