  1. The sound of two bass drums rolling is more like dooka dooka dooka. Doing that on one is more like doo doo doo doo doo doo. I'm actually surprised Georgie Porgie doesn't hear it. It's even more obvious to me on the companion version. I would think anyone who's played double bass would hear it instantly. I guess I'm the only one who does. Call me crazy
  2. A week after using them at the Anaheim show August 9. I wonder if he used them at every show that week? Interesting. Because the day before, in Asbury Park (8-16) he's using just one. So it seems kind of random. He used two in Albuquerque, and Salt Lake City (7-30), possibly San Berdu also. Wow, so imagine if Zep HAD agreed to do Woodstock, he might have used two there, and we'd have pro shot footage of it! As far as studio, I still think he's using two on Bonzo's Montreux.
  3. Charlie. Man, this one's tough. RIP
  4. Great points Woz. I hadn't thought about checking the multi tracks.
  5. Actually, after thinking it over I think he may have done it (Ramble On) all in one go. With a seat from a drum throne positioned where his rack tom would go, with a mic on it, and he just went from the pitter patter right into the drum part, easily going back and forth between the two parts. You'll notice there's no rack tom in the track at all. This would be the easiest way, the tempo would stay steady it and would save a track as well.
  6. Awww. Had a big crush on Markie Post back in the day. RIP.
  7. Cool! Weird how it looks like they're all jammed together, almost like they're the opening band or something.
  8. So I went to see a friend's band last Friday night, and since it wasn't wall-to-wall people or anything, I didn't wear my mask. I am fully vaccinated by the way. Well, what do you know, I caught covid. I was down for the count yesterday, it kicked my ass. Feeling a bit better today. Just wear your mask people, stay safe
  9. Haha! Now THAT was bad! Like Mr. Burns said "We did twenty takes and THAT was the best one!"
  10. What, you mean playing those? I can't play either one (yet, anyway), but I do love both songs.
  11. Jonny The Bends These Are My Twisted Words - I figured this out on guitar recently and just can't stop playing it, it's just so cool and weird, I love it
  12. That's correct, Elf and ELO. Well, although just an okay recording, and it does have some cuts, there's enough there that proves it indeed WAS an excellent night for DP MK III
  13. For over forty years I've been searching for a bootleg of Deep Purple at the Long Beach Arena from November of '74. I was at this show and always considered it to be one of the best shows I've ever seen. Well, I finally found it. I downloaded it last night, I will listen when I get home. I'm sure it will be anti-climactic, right? Still...I haven't had this giddy feeling of FINDING something in a long time. I still remember when I found Led Zeppelin LA '71, same thing, just YES! VICTORY! haha The search was always part of the fun. I do hope it lives up to my memories. Hopefully it's not an awful recording. We'll see. I will report back with my review. Another thing I want to find is Jaco Pastorius at the Beverly theater 1983. I've heard there is a recording, I just haven't seen it. This one is kind of the opposite - "was it really as BAD as I remember?"
  14. Awesome!! Still wanna hear that '71 Hawaii show, despite the poor review
  15. The fuck up on Moby Dick is startling....Is Bonzo getting pranked by the band here? He does the whole drum intro (post solo) and they don't come in. Reminds me of that time they left Plant hanging on IMTOD, also a '75 show. Mistakes? Maybe. But It got me thinking they might pull stuff like this on each other just for fun
  16. Well, they played all originals at the UFO show. They played there quite a bit, so these could be two different gigs or "pt. 1 and pt. 2" of the same gig. I'd have to listen, so many of these have wrong info on them.
  17. That's not the UFO show, there's no recording of that one (that I'm aware of). This is earlier, but same place (Golden West Ballroom)
  18. Indeed I was! What a show, one of my all time faves. Here's a few pics
  19. I was at that one too. Tommy Castro opened up. So basically, every concert I went to, Strider was there lurking somewhere, haha. Maybe sitting right in front of me, who knows 😄
  20. For me it WAS the Universal Amphitheater. Perfect size, perfect sound, not too far away....saw so many great shows there, Prince, Bowie, Radiohead, Jeff Beck, Stevie Wonder, Sting, The Tubes, Ozzy, etc., etc...but ALAS. They tore it down to build Harry Potter land! Still pisses me off
  21. No way, are you kidding? Before the pandemic you were going to a show almost every day it seemed like. You've seen more shows in the last five years than I've seen in my life probably!
