Re: Frank Briggs Here!
Thanks for the great post. I can understand about needing charts for that gig. Mike Keneally's music is awesome, but so out there. I can't imagine trying to sit in the drum chair. In fact, I'm hard pressed to think of a more challenging drummer spot.
Funny about the "Potato" tempo. I don't think that song would sound right at all going slower.
Anyway, the reason for the post is I just listened to "Circus of Sound" last night. Great CD. Ohm is just SICK good!
Your tracks have a great feel, sweet drum sounds and awesome fills. Ohm's such a busy playing trio and man, you fit in perfectly. (Kofi "Barker" & Joel Taylor are great too. Kofi blew me away when I saw Ohm live a few years back.)
I really like your part on the opening on track 5. And the greasy feel on track 7, though I'm not sure that's the right word. The song feels funky in a super-cool way to me.
Thanks for your part in making a very good CD.
