  1. Not sure what John Bonhams unfortunate death in late 1980 has to do with ITTOD being recorded in late 1978 and released in "79"?? A pair of decent albums from 1980.. Van Halen - Women and children first Ac/Dc Back In black Of course, not much in the bass department there.
  2. Of course he's not the greatest of all time....but he's got a fantastic start, and time.
  3. I think it's a sign that steroid use is alive in the drumming world. I feel cheesy playing DB sixteenths for more than four bars!
  4. Man...could you quit being sarcastic and get serious about this, Please?
  5. It's been done quite a bit actually, there's a whole bass drum speed culture amongst kids on Youtube. Some don't even play drums, but sit there with a double pedal, a kick drum trigger pad and a metronome! There's a vid of some guy doing 290 BPM on there as well. I've seen that done in person, it's not that impressive when the trigger supplies the velocity, and you set your beater to stay about 2" of off the drumhead.
  6. If you look at those shots you see that the backline isn't at all the usual Zep equipment. Was that from a TV show set or something?
  7. JHB triplets do not require a double pedal at all - true. JHB's quadruplets seperate him from mortal drummers lol! I use a double pedal always....I'm perfectly capable of pulling off quads with one foot, but in todays musical landscape, and with volume levels being where they are, it is much more comfortable and practical to use the the double pedal system.
  8. (In best Ed Mcmahon voice) You are correct sir. One more mystery solved...keep up the good work MD!
  9. IGG

    You are a lovely soul, I'm happy to have had the chance to get to know a bit about you over the years. Luckily this can continue in more friendly environs.

  10. I don't like "VS" threads, and this comparison is another reason why. I think both have a rightful place in my music collection, for different reasons, and one thing you can say about both players is that even if you've not heard the song before you instantly know it's them. That's respectable in any genre.
  11. Smile!!! Please?


  12. Pantera Metallica (from "And justice" backwards...) Testament Prong Suicidal Tendencies Bad Brains Slayer Slipknot Throw in a nice mix of the classics...Priest, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Early VH
