Attachment 15365

thats exactly what I though until I scrolled down enough to see that there is a *minor* difference in appearance. I must say, they both are great drummers and great entertainers to watch live, though.

Well *I* didn't cheat and I guessed JoJo by the last pic. If only he knew then what a monster drummer he'd grow up to be.

I actually like how N'dugu puts his cymbals, it makes sense although it is strange to look at. I could never play them like that but I appreciate his take on minimal movement.

My first guess was John Bonham actually. I would have loved to hear him play as a kid. Then again, i would have loved to hear all the drummers on the site as a kid.

He has a theory. He says, with the cymbals in that position, the sound projects out to the audience much better. specially the ride cymbal in jazz settings.
AND....
it is the most economical motion , physically to move from drums, to cymbals, to drums..

Wow... Never in a million years would have i guessed that that kid in that picture was a guy. I could've sworn it was a girl. I thought Nutha made a mistake calling him "he" and i thought wavelength was joking saying it was jojo mayer... damn, he's changed A LOT!

Ah, 70's androgyny. Not many people realize this, but it was a federal law in America that all children were to have brian jones bowl haircuts and wear brown corduroy. Every kid, male or female, looked like either Danny from "The Shining" or the kid from "H.R. Puffinstuff". I wonder what JoJo sounded like back then. Are there recordings?

My first guess was Danny Carey, but then I noticed the absence of Alesis pads.
