Who played drums on "Imagine" by John Lennon?

Does someone know? I've heard Ringo, Alan White and Jim Keltner.

Long standing mystery to me. Just wondering. Thanks!

Re: Yamaha Drum Testimonials Anyone?

I hope I'm not late to the party but I've had a set of Yamaha Recording Customs in Deep Aqua for 12 years. The wood has aged nicely and now they REALLY sing!

Re: Manu Katche

His playing really knocked me out on the Peter Gabrial disc "So" back in '86. Very cool and smooth. When I saw him live a few years later, I was suprised how hard he rocked as well.

It's so cool...

Re: Pillow poll - Lets get some good responses!!

I'm sure it's just a nice marketing device. But I've had mine for about 18 years and I do think it's a good, solid pad. The fact that the 12" fits right on your snare and the weight of the wood...

Re: Charlie Watts / Shine A Light / new snare!

Charlie actually visited some American drum companies on that tour like Zildjian and DW. Maybe they gave him one to try.

Re: What the *F* am I doing wrong? Your feedback is appreciated.

First things first...put the Drum Dial away. You need to learn tuning by feel and sound, not numbers. Once you get better at it, you can experimwnt with it again.

Re: what means 'pocket' ?
