The human body as a drum kit

There's no vid on this,but in an interview I think in Modern Drummer,Liberty DeVito said when he and Billy Joel were recording "Angry Young Man",they used a somewhat unorthodox method in recording the drum part.

Billy though the "train beat" was lacking some depth,so the got two folding chairs out,and Billy laid face up across the chairs,and Liberty played the snare train beat on Billys chest with his hands.

That's the story at least.I'm sure crazier things have happened.
