My band was the opening act for Vince Neil (with the Slaughter members in support) during our State Fair in October, 2017.
We were instructed to arrive at 3:30PM and do a sound-check at 5.
During our check, Zoltan came out and watched -- when we were finished he walked over and introduced...
Next month, I will celebrate 42 years of gigging with my Gretsch USA Customs.
My drums will never be as pretty as those Tama shells (but they sound better with age) -- I would think nothing of a scratch on a batter hoop.
We were hired at our State Fair to open for RATT last Fall -- below is our 45-minute set of rock covers...................
The Song Remains The Same
Never Been Any Reason
The Big Medley
Learn To Fly
Dancing Madly Backwards
Tie Your Mother Down
One of my favorite "power" rock drummers.
I'll never forget the TV broadcast of California Jam where I watched a self-taught young man from Mississippi perform an exceptionally kick-ass drum solo with BOA.
My astonished gut-reaction was "how did that crappy band score a drummer like that ?"
Yes -- great videos for great marketing..............I had not seen those before, so thanks for posting.
Mike Johnston chose the 6.5X14 bronze USA -- the same drum I bought about two years ago -- I have not played my other snares since.
20-lugger, new micro throw, and (of course) cast...
I'm leaving in 30 minutes to go set up my USA Customs for a private party -- we play 5pm until 8:30.
I ordered my shells in 1977 and lost count of the gigs many years ago...…….they sound better with age.
