I'm glad I had the chance to see him live in '82 or '83 with Withesnake, the drum solo with the 1812 Ouverture by Tchaikoswski was astonishing. (With Ozzy Osbourne as an opening act with Tommy Aldridge on drums)

Cozy's the reason why I started drumming 30 years ago.

*Jealous rage* :( haha I am jealous. I seriously wish I was born earlier than '86. I've missed out on the good times!

You're very very lucky :-D Bonham got me into drumming...then I found out he had died 6 years before I was born. Pfft! :)

I will have to learn to play heel up. I can do the triplet things heel down but...you know, I want to be able to do everything..well as much as possible :-D
Yes go ahead, you won't regret it, I promise you...

The other day I spotted this vid from Mike Packer, he has just joined the forum...

He left that vid for us : http://www.youtube.com/user/mpacker49?feature=mhum

Have a look, there is 4 vids alltogether, the little groove/solo at the end of lesson 4 is quite something...

Today is Cozy Powell's birthday. He would have been 64. Almost 14 years have past and I am still saddened by his loss. I honored him by" Listening to Still I'm Sad" from "Rainbow On Stage". Tremendous drum sound tremendous playing. I'm glad he has got some fans here.

Love his playing. "Rainbow Rising" is an incredible album, one of my top 10 of all time. Too bad Led Zeppelin couldn't have brought Cozy on and kept going.
