I loved that set, was tiger print. Boasted every size drum ludwig made at the time if I'm not mistaken. and that version of runaway is my favorite by far. The dinosaurs in the video were great, but donny osmond looked fake.Luis Cardenas?? played drums for Rengade I think [Bermuda is a friend of his] but had a coupla hits singing too; check out 'Runaway' on youtube, has Del Shannon, Donny Osmond and some dinosaurs in it!! Also had 'the biggest drum set' in the world according to Guinness tv show [4 bass drum Luddie in leopard print I think, maybe tiger]
Absolutely Tim!! Being able to play is a given, but, two for the price of one get's it done!When I stated playing drums I put the headphones on and a stack of records dating myself..LOL and played while I played i sang along to the songs so it just came natural.
being able to Sing and having STRONG harmonies has gotten me MANY gigs.
Omar Hakim,and Abe L w Paul Mccartney got their gigs not just on drumming but also their vocal ability.
BEST singing drummer would go to Deen Castranova with JOURNEY check out his voice here....http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=-gomgFZsG-0
I sing, pretty much ALL harmony. I'm more inclined to sing the harmony to stuff I hear anyway, so I put it to good use.2 part question:
How many drummers out there sing? I do but I'm not so hot with harmonies.
Also how many famous singing drummers can you name?
