I was fascinated with this fact and promptly sat down at the kit and practiced the song over and over until I learned it note for note....with the original kit.
Surprisingly, just for kicks, I looked it up on Youtube (not expecting anything) only to find THIS!!!
I swear, the internet has EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
no lie. that has to be the most amazing story i've ever heard. and to find a copy of it on youtube in mint condition no less.
you win. any idea where the kid is now ? the drummer from the recording i mean.
