    Not sure why but 70's easy listening has been the theme for like a week at my house.

    It's nice.

    This came on on my drive home from surfing today. In case you were on Military Cutoff Rd around 2:15 this afternoon, that was me yelling this song out my van window.

    The first time I heard the song "Seasons in the Abyss" by Slayer it clicked for me that Dave Lombardo was as good a metal drummer as it gets. He's not my favorite drummer of all time, but he might be a close second to Bill Bruford.

    I followed a couple of his other bands just because of his drumming, Strapping Young Lad and Fantomos (another project with Mike Patton).
    I saw a movie not long ago called Beware Mr Baker about Ginger Baker that was great. I always liked Cream but didn't really get the hype about Baker until I saw this. The guy is a nut along the level of Ozzy or Lemmy, great doc. amazing drummer.

    Masters of Reality, with Ginger Baker on drums. Great 80s - 90s band from upstate New York that managed to get Ginger to play with them for a few years. They, and he, were amazing.

    Oh hell yeah Mitchell! Bruford is the best. He is hands down my favorite of all time.

    I have always loved that "loose" tuning he utilizes on his kit. His drums really pop and sound hollow. Stunning technique and feel push his contributions to the fore in any project he's involved in!

    I remember the first time King Crimson's "Red" album was played for me. It is by no means metal, but it is one of the heaviest sounding slabs of vinyl ever recorded. I have never heard a drummer apply cymbals so dramatically before or since. Still scares the shiz out of me!

    Yeah. Red is always on my rotation. Right, the way Bruford uses trashy cymbals on that record as accent percussion is very groundbreaking. Just one of many bands he has been in where his less-is-more style impresses me.

    That is an interesting notion Sixto. It seems as if you are in possession of some potentially sinister insider information.

    Was Elvis your Mommy? I believe I speak for us all when I query, (or in your case queery); did you suck from the teat...or the meat?

    Regardless, I prefer Dire Straits take on the matter. As we have come to expect, Knopfler really hits the sweet spot with his trademark tasteful fretwork.

    If anyone should run into "The King"...

    So I've been listening to a lot of Social D. lately - a good bridge between punk and classic rock. Mike Ness is the G! The video below is a hoot. Enjoy fellas!

    Made a mistake in an earlier post, Lombardo never played with Strapping Young Lad, I get all my early 90's metal mixed up, the band I was thinking of was Grip Inc., there was a great instrumental I loved, this is it, I hadn't heard this since maybe the late 90's, still holds up.

    I've had this band, and this song stuck in my head for days now. I can't figure out why I'm digging two chords and a kid that sounds like he's singing through a traffic cone...but I am and that's fine with me.
