Hit Me Baby One More Time

Terry Bozzio Clinic, December 15th 2007:

I really like it – and enjoyed his solo on the Z*Z DVD, too. I like his dry sound, his rich, sensitive touch. See him also from 1988.

    Haha, good old Bozzio.
    This is exactly why I compared drums / percussion with the church organ. Two similar & interconnected instruments.
    - Both musical instruments are hand made.
    - And both require tremendous human skills to be played. Two hands ( # 1 & #2) & two feet ( idem): connected/ disconnected.
    Just give it a try ( I always happened to be unsucessful while making an attempt).

    Amazing video…that kit looks more complicated than the cockpit of the space shuttle…and Bozzio’s skill is both artistic and unique.
    I wonder how long before a C&D letter gets issued because TB used to play for Zippo?

    Let’s go back to drums.
    Drumming. Percussion.
    1.As far as I know the greatest one right now ( all musical genres: jazz, new thing , contemporary classic, you name it) is Joey Baron.
    An – ever laughing & joyfull- jew from Virginia. From ordinary beginnings, a workers family. Very approachable, you just start talking with him after the concert. In case you do not like J. Zorn Music, overlook the others and just listen to Joey, the drummer. Zorn attacks people who make videos of him, performing on stage. Baron doesn’t do that, he just keeps laughing, enjoying Music. With much less impressive means than Bozzio:

    2. The one who invented the drum solo as an art was Zutty Singleton ( amongst others the Louis Armstrong bands in the 1920ies), it’s

    We´ll gonna call you “LinkMan” from now on!

    I really don’t care.
    Minor version ( more rock drumming version ) is this one:

    “bernard” with deep sympathy: Where do you get all these links? Okay, silly question perhaps – the www of course. But !

  8. mcnastie says:

    bernard – you are an insane person.
    also – zutty singleton learned about drum solos from baby dodds.
    baby dodds is the father of the modern drum set and the drum set solo.
    your musicology is as half-assed as your command of english.

  9. drum de dumb dumb says:

    Joey Barron? Oh ho ho isn’t that rich.
    Milford Graves anyone? Anyone?
    You probably can’t imagine, but Graves on a set like that would be, well, something you probably can’t imagine.

    Terry Bozzio will always top my list when it comes to drummers. Others in that list include: Billy Cobham, John Bonham, Stewart Copeland, Mick Fleetwood, Prairie Prince, Aynsley Dunbar, Keith Moon, and John “Drumbo” French (in no particular order or ranking).

    What about the late Eric Carr? His drumming on ‘Creatures Of The Night’ by Kiss is excellent (very Bonham-esque) – and very loud!

    Besides the 1976 release Destroyer by Kiss, my interest in that band wasn’t too great. I suppose one would say I was never a member of the Kiss Army. I did catch an early Kiss concert in 1977. Much like The Tubes, Kiss is a band that should be seen live at least once. Fantastic live show.

    Don’t forget the classic ‘Kiss Alive’ !

    the best kiss album ever is that soundboard compendium of paul stanley stage patter from between songs.
    ‘HEY PHOENIX – HOW MANY OF YOU OUT THERE LIKE THE TASTE OF AAAALLLLLL-CO-HOLLLLLL?!?!?!?!’

    Terry Ted, I’ve seen lots of drummers over the years but you stand out the most. I first caught Bozzio on the first Missing Persons tour. His drum kit was front & center stage. Beacon Theatre, NYC. 82? Dale was dressed to kill, but I could not take my eyes off Terry, totally playing the fuck out of his kit. I consider it one my “Top 10″ live music moments!

    Just realised something (slightly off-topic).. Dale Bozzio was wearing those conical bras YEARS before Madonna ever did!
