Remo Belli 1927-2016


Drummers the world over are mourning the passing of Remo Belli the creator the synthetic drumhead. Belli died on April 25 in California. Drummers will argue the merits of the various makes of drumkits, sticks or cymbals but never drumheads. The only debate there was which of the many Remo heads were/are the best.
A very good legacy to leave behind.
Remo Belli was 88, may he rest in peace. Sadly missed.
Obituary.
Lance.
Thanks to Maurice Summerfield for bringing this sad news to my attention.
