    New Artemus Pyle Skynrd Doc

    I'm watching it right now. Already in the first 5 minutes I have a nitpick: the Artimus impersonator is seen playing a stainless steel Ludwig double bass kit when he first joined LS. In reality he had a chrome-o-wood Slingerland kit when he first joined. But a great looking Ludwig kit...

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    The tracking sheet for "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". Roger had 5 mics on his kit alone.

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    One of Elton's top concerts, next to Central Park 1980. Someone shot some 16mm footage of these concerts...

    Jim Gordon's Camco set

    "New" pic I found.. Check out the scuff over the badge. This must be the Oaklawn with the 24 inch bass.

    Jim Gordon's Camco set

    I think he meant "SHF", for the Souther-Hilman-Furay Band.

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    He and Kenny Passarelli were a good rhythm section.

    Ludwig kits with all wooden hoops?

    Well I stand corrected then. I remember him using a Sky Blue Pearl 1-up 1-down Ludwig set during the Hookfoot days the most.

    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...
