In 1915, University of Michigan alumnus George J. Moe quit his job with the Michigan athletic department to pursue his dream of opening a shop devoted to quality apparel and athletic equipment. The Moe Sport Shop became one of Ann Arbor’s most beloved institutions. Did you know that team logo wear began at Moe's? And that Moe's invented the Official's striped jersey we all like to boo on football Saturdays?

100 years later, the tradition continues at 711 N. University. AADL sat down with current owners Ryan Gregg and Rishi Narayan and former owner Bud Van de Wege Jr. to explore the history of the Moe Sport Shop, the changes to the store over the years and how the shop remains a vibrant presence in the 21st century.

From John Bonham and Keith Moon to Sheila E. and Dave Grohl, the pulse of rock’n’roll—the drummer—finally gets its due in this unique, all-encompassing inside look at the history, artists, instruments, and culture of drumming. Playing a drum kit is hard, sweaty, demanding work. Yet instead of being showered with respect, drummers are often viewed with derision—stereotyped as crazy, borderline psychotic, or just plain dumb. But as every musician knows, to have a great band you need a great drummer: Ginger Baker. John Bonham. Chad Smith. Stewart Copeland. Mitch Mitchell, Bill Bruford. British journalist Tony Barrell shines a long overdue spotlight on these musicians, offering an exciting look into their world, their art, and their personalities. In Born to Drum, Barrell explores the extraordinary history of the world’s most primitive instrument and the musicians who have made it legend. He interviews some of the most famous and revered and well-known drummers of our time—including Chad Smith, Ginger Baker, Clem Burke, Sheila E, Phil Collins, Nick Mason, Butch Vig, and Omar Hakim—who share astonishing truths about their work and lives. He investigates the stories of late, great drummers such as Keith Moon and John Bonham, analyzes many of the greatest drum tracks ever recorded, and introduces us to the world’s fastest drummer, the world’s loudest drummer, and the first musician to pilot a “flying drum kit” on stage.

The interview with Tony Barrell was originally recorded on August 11, 2015.
