I’ve been unpacking what seems like hundreds of boxes of drum gear that I’ve collected over the years and have turned up some amazing treasures. A lot of this stuff I forgot I even had. I’ll be posting in the blog and on the website as I go through all of it. Check out this logo bass drum head from Alice Cooper’s last tour signed by all of the band members. AC was one of the first bands I ever saw in concert. It was the Billion Dollar Babies tour in the early 70s. I remember that show like it was yesterday. That band definitely left it’s mark on me. They redefined what a rock concert is. AC is still one of my all time favorites. I talk to original AC group drummer Neil Smith periodically. He’s currently a very high end real estate dealer on the est coast. A very interesting guy. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m talking to him. He was such a HUGE idol/influence of mine as a kid. I also got to invite the AC band to join us on stage at lat year’s Woodstick where we played I’m Eighteen and Schools out along with 300+ drummers! I see Alice Cooper will be back in town with his current drummer Glen Sobel on 11/15. You can bet I’ll be there.
