Re: Aynsley Dunbar

Excellent drummer! I loved his work with Zappa and I especially loved the first Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation album. His solo on "Mutiny" is always fun to listen to. Didn't he play with John Mayall as...

Re: Phil Ehart

Karl,I think the gong in your link might very well be the Phil Ehart gong as well. I'd forgotten about that one. Anyway,it's a Ufip and the drummer with PFM also used a Ufip.Incredibly heavy gongs as...

Re: Jim Fox

Re: Phil Ehart

Karl,I believe the gong that Phil used in the 1970s was a custom-made Zildjian. I used to have a Zildjian catalogue at that time and it had several odd gongs that Zildjian no longer makes. In fact I...

Re: Barriemore Barlow

Yes,and the Conundrum solo is only the tip of the arrow as to what this guy is really capable of. Unfortunately,I never got the chance to see Tull during their Prog-Rock heyday,but I do have a nice...

Re: Tom Fogerty

I absolutely loved the drumming in Born On The Bayou. Just give me Doug Clifford's snare sound and I'd die a happy man....well,no...make that John Bonham and Doug Clifford's snare sound and I'd still...

Re: Phil Ehart

Resguy,I can agree with much of what you are saying. I don't think Phil's "fills" are so much "weak" as they are just "commonplace," meaning that they do not stand out or blaze across the music the...

Re: 13x9 tuning tip wanted

Ironically,my 9 X 13 rack tom is the only good sounding drum on my entire kit. Now,if I can only get my 14 X 14 and 16 X 16 toms to sound good,I'd be thrilled.

Re: Cozy Powell

I loved the 1977 Rainbow Live LP. Cozy has such great sound and presence on that disc. It's too bad that they chose to cut out his drum solo from Still I'm Sad; maybe a future re-release of this...

Re: The importance of rimshots

Re: new floor tom, what should i get

For the Zep sound definately go with a 16 X 18; a 14 X 14 would sound more like a rack tom (in the context of raw blues-rock,) than a floor tom,although in all other applications a 14-incher is...
