Poetry and Percussion

Phill has such a tremendous pocket. It was he and Malcom who were the magic w AC/DC.
Even though, eighth note based, Phill, much like Ringo, SWINGS.

When I head ACDC w Phil and Malcom, to me, Phills right arm/hand is in total sync w Malcoms right hand on...
Keith Moon is still my all time fav
Ringo, Mitch, Charlie, Levon..etc...etc..
a few that have altered my approach to drums over the decades have been
Ronald Shannon Jackson

first sticks were Speedex included w my Olympic By Premier Student Snare drum in 1977!
then a thin set that came w my Royce Kit in 1978
most likely went w 5a for some time
i remember being a Promark 707 fan...Ed Shaughnessy, Terry Bozzio model
