Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

Like or Loathe him Ginger was an amazing drummer,off thread but when it comes to drum solos the late great Buddy Rich is hard to beat,you can find them on Youtube, the ones I have seen are just amazing and Buddy had a reputation not being the nicest bloke (seems to go with the territory) I have hea...

Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

I was recently trying to list Stranglers songs with an unconventional back beat ( don't know if that's the correct wording ), early stuff going back as far as Rattus. Some really clever beats played by a Mr JB. Tracks like Peaches, Ugly, Dead Ringer, Tolouse...just to mention a few, clever stuff. O...

Incredibly overrated drummer and nowhere near as great as he thought he was, and a massive cunt as a person to boot.
Totally disagree about overrated, not the nicest bloke at times, but at least if he hated people they knew it.

Re: Spear of Destiny-"One Eyed Jack's Tour" anyone going?

Saw Spear on that co-headline tour they did with Hugh back in ‘97/‘98, really enjoyed them and watching my mate from work and his mates all doing that crazy psychobilly/ rockabilly body slamming dance thing they all do. Yeah would be good to see em support The Stranglers. Well Kirk likes The Strang...
