    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    He first got the kit with Kiki Dee I see, and it was originally a 2-up 2-down setup. Yes, I see that "custom made" ride you refer to, above the 14 inch tom. It had quite a distinctive tone to it... Your husband was one of the many underrated greats, and he is still missed.

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    Also the identical white Cortex Ludwig (with Granitone interiors) kit he had when he first joined Hall and Oates, and recorded "Livetime" with. Then replaced with the aforementioned kit in 1978. That same kit he got while with Elton to record the "Blue Moves" album and subsequent "Louder Than...

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    I saw that same kit was up for auction a year or so back, looking a little rough. Did it ever sell?

    Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp) 5-fer

    Yep, I remember that..and Tom himself actually dropped in to comment. Pretty neat.

    Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp) 5-fer

    And the crown jewel of the album. To some, hard to think this would be the same guy who would release later on "Pink Houses", "Small Town", and "Authority Song"...but I digress.

    Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp) 5-fer

    Some selections from his 1978 opus "A Biography", when he was in his brief "glam rock" phase and was known as Johnny Cougar. Which for reasons unknown the album was only released in Australia and the UK. This was also the album that "I Need A Lover" was originally recorded for. Great drumming...

    Willie's Drummer, Paul English, died

    I remember him and Rex Ludwick both in "Honeysuckle Rose", both playing Rogers Drums. Rex with the red Big R ones and Paul playing the black ones, of course. His were a mashup of script and Big R.

    Hookfoot Live in Memphis-1972

    Not sure if this from the Memphis show, but around the same time. Roger's drums he was using with Hookfoot. He would get the massive Thermogloss Walnut kit in his post-Hookfoot era, when he would play for the Kiki Dee Band. Also surprised he used a Supraphonic as well, I mainly familiarize him...

    Hookfoot Live in Memphis-1972

    With Roger Pope on drums He was playing a Super Classic in SBP with a 5x14 Supraphonic...Zildjian cymbals. I also read somewhere Roger preferred 15 inch hi hats as well.

    When Glenn Frey toured with them in '88:

    Initially the LRB performed under the name "Mississippi", a group Goble, Birtles and Derek were in previously.

    A bonus 5: 1st one, being the first lineup of LRB in 1975. Ric Formosa and Roger McLachlan instead of David Briggs and McArdle. I like Derek's bass drum head. He played Sonor Drums thru his tenure with LRB. Entering the John Farnham era:

    Little River Band 5-fer

    Good call, I thought about posting that one. Derek makes some good use of his Syndrums in it. Worth noting the late Glenn Frey was a big fan of the LRB. Even appeared on tour with them in 1988. As expected, they did some Eagles tunes.

    Little River Band 5-fer

    I may be a day early, but here goes. Derek Pellicci was one genius...he and George McArdle were one tight rhythm section! Wayne Nelson wasn't bad either.
