Default Re: NEW Videos: Jon Hiseman - Colosseum

Superb addition Bernhard, especially as Hiseman is little known in the US. I happen to know that Hiseman was a big influence on Simon Phillips, & you don't have to listen too deeply to pick that up. That speed up/slowdown snare/bass drum section is just a wonderful display of control.

As a little side snippet of useless info, I arranged a Paiste clinic for Hiseman back in 1985, & actually jammed with him in an informal 2 kit setup after his set piece clinic performance. Of course, there's no way I could keep up with Jon, but it was fun.
