The Spirit of Radio, on the big kit

I've been locked away at home with COVID for a week, so I've been trying to put in some practice time. The kit's all set up, the mics are plugged in, and the camera's on a tripod, so it follows that I should just go ahead and record some of the tunes I've already learned for Cygnus X-2 shows.

So here's this one!

If I do get covid I hope I will be playing like that! Awesome.
Is that a Slingerland 3 ply snare like Neil had?

Thank you for all the kind words!

Mine is a '59 Radio King. It was sold to me as an Artist, which of course was available in both single-ply and 3-ply versions, but it's clear that it was a Radio King with a replacement strainer. It ends up being for the best; the Radio King has the deeper snare bed that Neil regularly talked about as being part of his Slingerland. My snare gets closer to the Neil sound than my friends normal Artist model, at any rate. The clear CS gets a lot of credit getting that sound too.

Soul to the devil, body to COVID, either deal--heck, maybe both--is worth that skill!

Love, love, love your kit! And your double talent ability even better! Life's not a rehearsal, and you're living it well! Keep on Drumming!!!
