This rare footage is from a three-part series produced by Larry McCormick in the 1970s featuring the Santa Clara Vanguard drumline — Building The Individual; Building The Section; Melodic Percussion. Each video was quite short; nothing has been edited from the original VHS.

In this first part, 3-time Natianal Champion, Rob Carson gives a brief glimpse into his approach to rudimental drumming. It's the only footage I've ever seen of him from the '70s. The single-strokes @ 1:00 should easily convince anyone of just how extraordinary of a player he really was. There is some great vintage footage of the entire drumline as well.

Rob Carson won 1st place at the amazingly young age of 14-years-old at the All American Championships in 1972. He went on to win DCI snare individuals in 1973. He placed 2nd in 1974 & 1975 (to Steve Chorazy) and 1976 (to Ken Mazur). He won 1st place again in 1978. More info on Rob Carson's history can be found at rudimentaldrumming.com
Thanks @drummermanrick for the updated info.
Enjoy!
