Also the identical white Cortex Ludwig (with Granitone interiors) kit he had when he first joined Hall and Oates, and recorded "Livetime" with. Then replaced with the aforementioned kit in 1978.I love Roger Pope's playing on the Elton John records and I was fascinated as a kid seeing both this wood hoop Mahogany Ludwig and the other kit he played with Hall & Oates with the triad concert toms on his left he later added to his setup. Great player with an amazing feel. He was THE guy in this musical circle.
That same kit he got while with Elton to record the "Blue Moves" album and subsequent "Louder Than Concorde" tour in 1976. That came after the mahogany kit.
