Re: Brian Downey
Thin Lizzy is one of my favorite bands! Downey's playing fits them perfectly. Songs like Bad Reputation, Emerald, The Warriors, Boys are Back in Town, etc., place him high on the list of great rock drummers.
I was really happy to see his playing get some praise in that recent issue of Modern Drummer. I wish they could have gone into some detail about his gear, but oh well. Maybe next time.
