Re: Ken Mary
i have the Chastain album called ''within the heat'' it was released in '89 .
you have to listen to the songs ''excursions into reality'' and ''within the heat'' , these are my favorites all time of Ken.
''return of the 6'' and ''danger zone F07'' are also interesting.
i heard the first time Ken in an album (at the time i bought LP.'s not cd's ) of the band TKO ''in your face'' and his work was ok but not fantastic but when i heard his work with Chastain i was impressed.
as a drummer myself i discovered some similarities between Ken and me, maybe that's why i loved him but i have to admit that maybe he was more constant with 2 bass-drums work than me even i play 2 bass-drum since 33 years.
i play drums for 35 years now and my influences are:
J.Hiseman, S.Phillips, B.Downey,T.Aldridge,B.Ward, G.Baker,I.Paice,J.Bonham and so much others.
