Re: Drummer From Ac/Dc
A good strong count is vital - the source of the count (hats/sticks/verbal) doesn't matter as long as everyone can hear it clearly. IN larger venues - with larger stages, a hi-hat count is the most audible.
On the AC/DC front don't let Phil Rudd's and Chris Slade's better name recognition detract from Simon Wright's playing. He really is a great drummer and, although we lost touch a long time ago (for reasons which I can put down to youthful idiocy on my part and only make me look bad), a great guy.
