i got to meet frankie many times through my old boss who worked for ludwig at the time. though blackie's message to his friend was personal (reposted above) all sentiments from everyone who knew him says basically the same thing...he was always a good guy. that alone speaks volumes.
i've listened to youtube interviews with carmine out of curiosity as i can't say i'm really a fan of his but i like his work on the blue murder album. this isn't the first time he's said something regarding this story.
if you listen to the album there's no question its all tommy. in the...
powder coating isn't cheap. i have some unused black power coated parts i've been selling off this year and most buyers say they can't afford to pc the whole kit.
i've been out of the indie drum game for a while, but generally some places will charge $100. per lot (i.e. a certain amount of pcs...

as for drum gear i just started selling again on here and locally. i now have time to go thru things...

fave album would be sticky fingers followed by tattoo you and voodoo lounge. just when you think they're down and out they came back strong and release tattoo, voodoo or even steel wheels.
