Christian always had some unusual cymbal setups. That's what I've remembered about him. Just cool placements and angles that kept me experimenting with cymbal placement. Neato drummer.

Love Magma. Had the chance to see them live a few years ago after having listened to them for a few decades. There has never been a drop in Christian's energy or passion in fifty years. I really don't know how he manages it from a physical standpoint, especially with the length and intensity of many of his compositions. It's like his hero, John Coltrane: uncompromising vision!

I'd never heard or heard of Christian before, but I will now! That was some good, good stuff! I hated the way his bass drum droned in my head, but the music was great. And even though he seemed to use only one of his 100 china cymbals, he certainly showed how they should be incorporated. Powerful.
