Default Re: Sorry guys i dislike terry bozzio.

I think he was brilliant on all the Missing Persons stuff. I listened to those albums to death! A lot of really straight forward stuff that just rocked, but also some pretty over the top brilliant drumming, too. Especially US Drag. Amazing.

He also played on Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop, which I also listened to constantly, and saw them on tour in Yokohama, Japan. That was the first time I saw him and man, was I floored! He was hitting like Dave Grohl or Frankie Banali - pure power and authority with just stunning drum parts. He owned that arena. That performance will live with me forever and cemented in me the absolute need to combine the power with the cool.

I've heard his recent work and seen some vids of his mammoth monstrosity of a kit and it just leaves me cold. I'd rather not follow his career too closely now because I don't want to see anything that might further taint my memories of his greatness.
