LANDING, N.J. (July 1, 1999) – Legendary drummer Ian Paice of the mighty rock band Deep Purple, is endorsing virtuoso drummer/D.A.D. Founder Pat Gesualdo’s signature Hot-Foot product line.

“A couple of years ago, Pat Gesualdo presented me with a prototype heavy weight bass drum beater,” says Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice. “This was destined to become the Hot Foot. I use these beaters on my practice kit at home. They make playing the regular beaters on my pedals on the stage kit seem effortless. A wonderful simple practice accessory.”

“It’s a great honor to have Ian Paice endorse my Hot-Foot signature line,” Says Pat Gesualdo.” “He is my all time favorite drummer. His style is the one responsible for making me the drummer I am today. The Hot-Foot is to drummers, what a rubber donut on a baseball bat, is for baseball players.” It helps drummers develop, speed, power, and coordination almost instantly.”
