How abou

1976 The Who with 126 decibels
1984 Manowar with 129.5 decibels
2008 Manowar with 139 decibels (that’s freakin’ eyeballs squirting blood loud)

I'm going to disqualify myself from this, so others can have fun too.


Here's an easy one to start.  What brand drums did Ringo Starr use when he first joined the Beatles?

Next harder question.  When he replaced those drums what TWO special requests did he make to close the deal with the music store?

Well re-reading the above I just feel like a little boy in a very expensive French restaurant... - You know, when you are reading the menu and you dont have a slightest clue what do those sentences actually mean!! Shocked  - More than that YOU CAN NOT EVEN PRONOUNCE ANY OF IT!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked

Mille-feuilles - 27
Profiteroles - 18
Pot au feu - 32

And you listen to what other people order, and you go to the waiter... Yeah! I'll have the same...

Seriously man, I have no slightest idea what are you talking about and where on earth can anyone dig out this kind of info!!

I mean Beatles hardware? How loud was that WHO show (in decibels!!) - The next thing I know you will be discussing the guitar pics of the Cannibal Corps guitarist... (No offense but I have no clue what is his name Grin )

So I rather stay away from this one, cause it kind of makes me feel like my IQ is around -70 or less!!! Grin

Buddy Rich used many different kinds of drums during his career.  However, he discovered a particular bass drum pedal that was "it" for him.  He continued to use that bass drum pedal for that time forth.

QUESTION:  What was this preferred bass drum pedal?

It is the Rogers Swiv-o-matic.  Once he tried it, he liked the feel and that became HIS pedal of choice.

The Speed King was Bonzo's weapon  :  )

By the way, do you why Buddy Rich was so often quoted as saying he did not tune his drums?

Well, I can answer Johnathan's latest question, but I have already disqualified myself so other readers can have some triva fun as well.   Roll Eyes

You all let me know how you are doing on the drum triva questions I still have unanswered.  Maybe they are too hard.  If so, I'll ease up in the future.  Let me know.[/size Wink

As already promised, I am not playing so others can have fun.  However, for just a bite of history to go along with Johnathan's question.......Keith Moon contributed his VOCALS, on the QUADROPHENIA cut "Bellboy".

Now for the answers to the questions I still have open.[/
b]

Luigi Paulino Alfredo Francesco Antonio Balassoni was the originator of what popular concept for solo drum artists?
   The DOUBLE BASS DRUM set.  Luigi's stage name is LOUIE BELLSON

As for "why Buddy Rich was so often quoted as saying he did not tune his drums?"   Because Buddy ALWAYS was emphatic that drums were TENSIONED, not tuned.  It was a "Buddy Thing" that would cause him to chatise interviewers in a heartbeat.

Finally, another little tasty morsel....Blue Oyster Cult was originally called Soft White Underbelly
