Default A Salute to John ‘Bee’ Badanjek

A Salute to John ‘Bee’ Badanjek

Here is an early 1980’s publicity shot of the Rockets with John “Bee” Badanjek on drums. Johnny Bee was — and still is — one of my favorite drummers. Ever since age 15, when I heard him play Devil With the Blue Dress On with Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels — I was hooked.

A quick web search tells me Johnny Bee is still active with the Howling Diablos. Good news!

Yeah, I always dug his playing. His groove on Oh Well by The Rockets (who were a big deal in Detroit) just oozes rock and roll. I remember seeing him at a local club once in the early-80s, I think just sitting in with a local band.

He wrote a coffee table book about the history of drummers a few years ago and he was making the talk show rounds. I believe he was involved with the recording of Ted Nugent's latest also.
