Bingo! The immortal street drummer Gene Palma. Here's a few more shots of him in action.
I saw Sheila E play w/Ringo a few years ago, they were great!
Chester Thompson and Phil Collins masters of the drum duet:
In 1974, Keith used another transparent drumkit (as he’d previously used a Zickos transparent kit in 1970–1971). This time it was from Ludwig, who launched their own line of acrylic drums called Vistalites. This kit comprised:
■Two 24″x14″ bass drums
■Two 18″x16″ floor toms
■Eight mounted tom toms: 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″, 13″, 14″, 15″, 16″
Keith used this drumkit performing on the U.S. TV show “Wide World In Concert: Midnight Special” on ABC on 8 Oct. 1974. As a gimmick, he put goldfish in the floor tom to his left.
Another Frank Beard one.
Wow, he looks like he has painted on hair. Was he any good ?
As long as we have a couple of Ringo's kits posted already, let's add his kits from the "Hello Goodbye" video's. I'm not sure that everyone here is aware that three video's were filmed for "Hello Goodbye" and that Ringo had a different drumset in each of them. A mini kit (possibly a Trixon) , his standard Ludwig kit and an oversized Ludwig kit with a 24" bass drum.
Hey, these drumsets are famous..to me anyway.
I'm not saying it's more famous than the black-oyster one-tom kit here. I agree, yeah, that's the most famous one. But...this one is certainly very well known as well, if only from "Let It Be", and as I noted before, especially the rooftop concert scenes...and it's the drum set for those things, and "Abbey Road" and some of The White Album...which means, I'm betting, that to most folks, it's more famous than most of the other drum sets on here.
There's also quite abit of footage of him in Little Steven's movie "MEN WITHOUT WOMEN" although he is playing plastic pails in it.
He also appears in the anti-pornography documentary "NOT A LOVE STORY" (he's just seen playing on the street, he has nothing to do with the foucs of the film!).
Or the author who probably speak's from experience!
How about an infamous one?
Charles Robert Watts
Here are some pics thru the years
I wish I could find a better picture. But here is the Allman Brother Band with their original innovative dual-drummer set-up.
Charlie Watts on the Slingerlands. Must be from his jazz band show.
must've been a left over from Neil's jazz days!
Which should be good for him, since he can't really play jazz anyway.
Huh? He's got the chops. But he has his own style.
Yes... This pic is from one of his recent shows with The ABC & D of Boogie Woogie.
as a drummer, I'll take a John Bonham who can do tons with one bass and a 5 piece kit over a neil peart with his 82 toms anyday.
what's so infamous about the bill haley drum picture?
I recognize Sonny Boy Williamson, but who's the drummer?
Trixon Speedfire. Neat.
Yes, but Bozzio DOES know how to use them all.
Separate names with a comma.
