It was by The Ventures, Mel Taylor on drums (yeah, had to look that one up).Yes, Hawaii 5 0! Holy cow, that was a very cool drum song. Sorry, you had no shot against that! Lol. The show was pretty cool, but that cover song made you want to watch it, period!
Who was the drummer?
My first solo was a combination of both of those! It brought down the house when I did it because back then almost everybody recognized where it came from. That was a great time.Inn A Gadda Da Vida
I’m currently learning 100,000 years , Peter Criss .
I haven’t played a drum solo in years, for some reason I’ve been entranced by 100,000 years and learning it .
Probably because I stumbled across this on you tube
Yes!!! That’s cool as heck !! I’m hoping to combine elements from other solos as well ....My first solo was a combination of both of those! It brought down the house when I did it because back then almost everybody recognized where it came from. That was a great time.
Great story.I graduated from High School in 1964 and messing around with a Krupa/Rich drum battle album; only simulated of course and played around with Sing Sing Sing. Then Wipe Out became my go to solo.
We had a lot of talent show contest in High School then. I couldn't compete because I was getting paid to play in a 4 piece country band. At the end of the show while the judges were making their decisions our band would start playing Wipe Out from behind the curtains. As they opened the crowd was yelling W I P E O U T and everyone was going wild. LOL
