Default Re: Frankie Banali

I wish to have the chance to meet any of these drummers personally - what a great experience should it be - By the way, how was Cozy's performance with Whitesnake? Did he played songs like Stargazer, Kill The King, Beethoven 9th, Long Live Rock 'N' Roll?

Very good post, thanks!

Just an aside: That Quiet Riot tour also gave me the chance to see Cozy Powell drumming for Whitesnake, who opened for Quiet Riot that tour. I saw Cozy Powell one more time with Emerson Lake and Powell - RIP Cozy.
