Um this one is pretty easy Smiley  You can even google it Smiley

Taken from Wiki Answers

When forming Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page approached Keith Moon and John Entwistle of the Who to join the band, the "New Yardbirds". They told Jimmy Page that a super group consisting of Jeff Beck, Page, and themselves would go down like a "lead balloon"(lead balloon was an expression Entwistle used to describe a poor gig). The word balloon was dropped and replaced by zeppelin (a synonym of an air balloon). Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin's tour manager, then suggested that the "a" in "lead" should be dropped as well, since he believed thick Americans would pronounce it leed.


Another story was that after Led Zeppelin completed their Scandinavian tour under the name the "New Yardbirds", the band read a bad review in a newspaper, which stated that the they would go down like a lead zeppelin. After discussion, the band decided to change their name from the "New Yardbirds" to Led Zeppelin.

Hi,

      I've got one.   Buddy Rich used one word to describe how he got his chops.  What's the word?

Don, as previously stated in this thread; I have disqualified myself from answering the questions.  I want others to have fun with this thread and to learn from searching for the answers.]

I did, however, want to share this about Buddy Rich.  I was forunate to meet him and chat with him on three seperate ocassions.  The first time we talked about music in general and this old 1930's Radio King snare drum he had used that night.  The next time we talked about stroke control.  He told me to practice single stroke rolls until they were as smooth and controlled as my double stroke rolls.  The third converation was about traditional and matched grips.....he too, used both.  He typically would simply flip the stick in the left hand over, using the butt end until he was ready to "flip back over" to the traditional grip. 

I got to set behind his kit after the show the last time I saw him (what an honor that was to me).  What was immediately apparent was just how easy every component was set up for him to reach.  He did not have to stretch out his arms to play the drums or hi hats.  His crash cymbals were low, flat, and only far away enough to get out of the way of his drums.  And, as previously mentioned, he used a Rogers Swiv--o-matic bass drum pedal.  His 24" bass drum was tensioned kind of medium, yet when he played it....it sounded deep, full, and very powerful.  It had a tone.....not a thud.

He had such control of his wrists and fingers that he could play a roll on the left drum stick by fliping it back and forth in a lateral motion which striking it with the right stick.  He was a amazing drummer, an incredible showman and in his own conversational style.......you ALWAYS knew Buddy's opinion on any subject that came up.  For instance, he kidded me about being from Nashville, the home of Country music. 

He was very demanding of his band, but for those who spent some time playing in the Buddy Rich Band, they earned an educational that could not be matched anywhere else.

My personal time with him was brief compared to what many other drummers could share with you.  However, he made a lifelong impression on me and I truly treasure the geniune courtesy he extended to me.......and his willingness to give me some "tips" that I could use.

Hi,

      Thanks for sharing those tips Ken.  Anything from Buddy is worth hearing about.  I posted my question although I didn't answer any of the other questions because I figured it would be a long time before I could answer any of the questions being asked.  And, I wanted to join in.

      So, there hasn't been an answer yet to mine, so I'll tell what Buddy told me when I asked him how he got to be so good especially with his left hand and what you have to do to get like that.  He looked me dead in the eyes and simply said "Bleed".  He didn't elaborate.

       That one word says a lot and conjures up a lot of images.  Each person will have to decide for himself what he would have to give in order to play at that level.  But you will have to "Bleed" to get there.

I think you are both right.  You have to sacrifice time and flesh, to get that good.

That's right Don (but you knew that).  How about naming another Tull tune in 5/4.  (I love time signature recognition).

I finally found an undamaged copy (long story) of Jack and the Crow (paraphrasing) and your right (of course.

I was listening to some Rush on a 5 at 5:00 kinda forum radio today and recalled the fact they like to tweak their time signatures a bit too.

There are three possible answers.  The answer depends upon the definition of the term "drum kit".

The term "drum kit" is a 1700's British term for the elements needed for a person to perform as a drummer......sticks, sling, drum.

With the popularity British pop music in the 1960's and 1970's the Bitish term "drum kit" and the American terms "trap set"and "drum set" began to be used interchangeably to describe the drums, cymbals and hardware used to perform popular music.  So what we think of as a "drum kit" today and what the term originally described are basially a parade drum suspended on a sling vs. an assortment of bass drums, snare drums, tom toms, and cymbals.

In the United States, where the "drum set" concept was evolving with jazz and big band performers in the early 20th centery, the Gretsch company produced actual drum SETS.  However, drum KITS had been produced by the Rogers company prior to that.  Even earler than Rogers, there were producers of drum KITS, especially for millitary use, by others.

So, give the readers a revison of your question.  Then they can research your trivia question either on the drum KIT or the drum SET.   Wink
