But anyway, for people not in the know there is a fantasitic drum solo courtesy of Les on the live version of "Starbreaker" on Priest in The East (that's Unleashed in the East) so you should go check it out. This is 78/79 and he is pulling out kick pedal drumming at warp speed nearly a decade or so before all of the speed metal/death metal clowns that oversaturate the genre now...
