Oral History Information
John Buswell was a 16-year-old drummer in the school band when his father, Stan, decided to open a drum shop. The year was 1976. The city was Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The store was called Drum World. John took a few years to pursue his musical career after school and returned to the store to partner with his father--a strong partnership to this day! The store became the hub for drummers in and around the city and was one of the first e-commerce and brick and mortar businesses in the music industry.
