Re: John Blackwell
yeh i saw him when he toured solo in australia,
yeh he defently is a showman but i think its great - alot of the olden drummer like, buddy, and gene where all showmen. and it jsut add's to the musicianship.
i found that he hit his kit really hard though; even though it was all mic'd and cas it was in a small venu my ears where ringing at the end.
