You know you're good when your drumming is just as powerful as a Symphony Orchestra.
His drum kit is just as big as a Symphony Orchestra also.
does anyone think that Bozzio wouldn't be as good or impressive without such a big kit

of course bozzio could play on a small set...even on just a snare drum. zappa was the miles davis of rock...and just like davis he had a gift for picking up and coming drummers that ended up being hall-of-fame drummers. terry is a great solo composer for drums. as far as his skill with a pop band,check out missing person's "u.s. drag" done live on youtube.just great.

but still the thing that most people remember about him is his kit size way more than his playing. But that is a good comparison between Miles and Zappa.

In Bozzio's case I would completely disagree...what he is doing is playing meoldies, harmonies and musical structures just as any 'melodic instrument musician' would...it is not there to just play roundhouse fills like Alex Van Halen or something...Bozzio's playing is something altogether different. If you don't like his stuff that is one thing ....but I think lumping him in somehow with guys who show off with large kits just for the sake of it...is just a bit unfair if you are not familiar with his playing and soloing concepts...just my .02 cents

Overrated? I've never been a big fan of Bozzio, but decided to go see him when he came to Richmond for a clinic. I sat just a few feet away from his kit and now I understand all the hype, ......he's good! REAL good! The man is a machine.

If anything I find it funny to see someone referrence Bonham...then say how "overrated" Bozzio is... I mean I love Bonham...but he could easily fall into the overrated category...easily as could the entire band Led Zeppelin...so I would be careful tossing around words like overrated ( not you) .....

If you watch Bozzio playing it, I suggest that you wouldn't consider it either 'overkill' or a 'waste of money'. Whilst his playing is not something that I can completely appreciate, I can understand that he's really trying to do something unique, and if the tools of his expression require a kit of that magnitude, then he should feel free to use it. I have no doubts that DW have gained a lot of exposure from his esoteric set up and it's probably more than paid back in revenue gained; making it economically viable for the companies involved.

What people forget, is he is not using this kit as everyone else "thinks" about how a drumset is used .....

He uses it for complete compositions of songs,...meaning, a song of only drums....that set isn't really set up for ....slapping down a funky back-beat! :)

Haha, I love his kit. I'd never dream of trying to do what he does, but he is impressive. Watch the duet of him and Chad Wackerman on the Drummerworld main site. Ridiculously awesome and impressive. From two Zappa drummers, it's to be expected, but still awesome

I'd rather see him play a four-piece. I'd hate to be his drum tech.

But it's not played like a normal set, negating the need for conventional cymbals.

I've always thought Mike Portnoy's set was rather stupid, but I don't lark on about it in 'Mike Portnoy' threads.

AHA! The man's a cheater! He has his chromatic toms marked with pitches! You, Mr. Bozzio, fail, for you are no more talented than a child playing a beginner's set of orchestral bells.



Well, I would probably do the same thing with chromatic toms. I know that if I ever had the privilege to sit down at the kit all I would do is play Aqualung and other random guitar riffs/songs on the toms.

I count 21 toms there. If you want to remember the pitch of everything and play it as well as he does, go ahead and try. I'm sure by now, he could even do without them. They are probably there for the techs. His chinas are basically his crashes, to the guy who said he has no crashes

Not quite the same setup, but this gives you a feel for how his playing style may gravitate more toward this sort of melodic setup:

Sorry, it was a joke, I couldn't imagine playing a kit like that. I just wouldn't know what to do with all the chinas/toms.

As a side note, I think satin chrome hardware looks ugly.

Not sure, check the Vic Firth website for Bozzio videos - you can see it in action there - sounds pretty cool.

Crazy how the toms are arranged, not only are there almost 2 full octaves but there are many triads closely grouped together.

I'd love to play that beast some day..

Those of you who are saying Bozzio’s kit is “overkill” probably have not spent much time watching or listening to the material he plays. His view of the drum set is pretty much without a doubt completely different than what most drummers are. For one he plays drum compositions much like someone would play the piano. Hence…the Chromatic toms on his left …and the diatonic toms on his right. Also each of his bass drums are tuned to specific pitches as well. This allows him to lay down ostinato patterns utilizing both rhythm and melody…literally…like bass lines with melodic playing over top of that. Unlike a lot of players who simply have piles of gear up there hitting something every once in a long while for effect…Bozzio plays using all the rules that apply to any melodic instrument…so it would be like telling a piano player to get rid of half of his keyboard in essence. I know peoples first reaction is to think of some guy playing roundhouse fills and long descending rolls like in a ‘prog rock’ sense…but really his music is a little different and more unique than that. Granted it is a different approach to the drums…but I feel it is about more than just showing off how many drums you can have…and his “thing “ is unique and not immediately accessible…but worth checking out.
