Re: JIMMY MARINOS...ORIGINAL DRUMMER FOR THE ROMANTICS
Ian....WOW !!! thanxxxx 4 the awesome pics of Jimmy Marinos !! I thought I was the only one out there who truly loved his power of playing.
It's true,The Romantics "back beat" was never the same since Jimmy left the band. I also think that Jimmy was far better vocalist than Wally Palmer too.
I still find Jimmy Marinos style of playing very interesting with a 4 piece kit & playing the drums with the handles of the sticks.
When i saw them live in 1979,Jimmy was very loud but solid. It reminded me of all those drummers from the 1950's & early 1960's way of playing...
Does anyone know what Jimmy Marinos is up to now days & if he's still playing ?
