That's nice but Vinny was playing with gong drums before that. First with Slingerland, then his Tama kit and with his biggest setup, the dw kit. I call them "Sky toms" if they're mounted higher than shoulder level.
YES! Iwas there
YES! I was there @the International Amphitheater,
Chicago, IL. USA! It was a acouple of magical nights of great music. The band was tight and sounded great. Despite what he has said in recent interviews, Michael's playing was phenomenal! The first true guitar hero I've seen live.
All precautions should be taken everyone. I had it really bad right before the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm also lucky that I've been inoculated. It's going to be great to have it once again in "da old barn!"
Yes, Carl does use his "Venus" Signature snare drum. It's his workhorse. The first run had problems with the strainer lever and he made sure LUDWIG would replace it with an improved one. He also insisted on the remo head as he plays on his snare as well.
