Rock star faculty: Acclaimed drummer Sam Young found his way to Iowa without missing a beat

For more than 10 years, he followed that path, playing in front of thousands while touring in rock bands DeVotchKa and The Samples. Now, after another decade of work as a composer, university instructor, and occasional studio drummer (that’s him on a vintage drum kit in the Paddington movie soundtrack), Young has found a home at the University of Iowa.
