Default Re: Dave McClain

Not taking anything away from Dave McClain. (And I've already posted elesewhere on the futility of comparing one drummer to another)

But Chris Kontos was totally amazing on the first album.

I think I read an article years ago by Dave, where his Mum or Nan or someone phoned him up upon hearing he'd got the Machine Head job and basically said. "Have you heard the guy you're replacing? Good luck!"

:-)

It's funny, but I preferred Dave's drumming in Sacred Reich to the stuff he's doing now.
