Featured in TIR Episode 202 (Parts 1 & 2): Muruga Booker, a highly accomplished drummer who has defied easy categorization during his eclectic 60-plus-year career.

They include Bob Dylan, Ted Nugent, John Lee Hooker, Weather Report, Jerry Garcia, John Popper and George Clinton, Bootsy Collins and related acts like Funkadelic and the P-Funk All-Stars. The award-winning Booker has also recorded numerous projects of his own, invented the nada drum, and is an orthodox priest with his own recording studio and church.
