Excited about the Drummer Throwdown - !
...I'm sure a reminder about Time & Details is forthcoming...

...Reflections on last week's drumbo discussions:

- Subtext that emerges is that Drummers are kinda Underrated in General...

...I think it relevant that The Who are beloved more of Punks & that sort (Moon kinda the Prototype Punk Drummer)
- whilst Zep much more by Metalheads & others...
...since there is this sortof Beatles-Stones thang w/ the Who&Zep - & Moon & Bonzo...
...Myself - I'd put up 'Live @ Leeds' to anything Zep did
- & The Who came 1st anyhow
...as did The Yardbirds, for that matter - & Cream
...Jeff Beck Group - & Small Faces were a bit relevant as Zep Influence
- how often do ZepFans discuss them?
...I get ticked when I see a book about Zep & where they come from & TheWho aren't even mentioned - that's all. It was either Moon or Entwihstle (lore is murky) who even *named* LedZep: One version of the fairlytale is Beck & Page were fed up w/ the Yardbirds, & The Who were always on thin ice w/ each other, so Moon & Entwhistle would join them & *that* was going to be the band originally: Moon was going to *be* Bonzo, in a sense...
...mucho longwinded here...

RRN, Charlie Watts is not a super-physical rock drummer.
One of the loudest, fastest drummers I ever saw was some jazz dinosaur at least 70 years old. Played with both ends of the sticks so he hardly moved his arms, almost entirely wrist player. But he could unleash a Dennis Chambers scale bomb on demand.

...I wonder - ? - a bit if in fact it isn't so much about 'less than 2%' as being okay w/ better Prog &/or Fusion - esp. undeservedly lesserknown stuff?
...I *kinda* think Prog's only gotta bad name because mainstream people think it's overplayed Styx or Kansas trax in the 1st place (well - general overindulgence); prettymuch anybody both Smart & a RockFan likes some 'Prog' anyhow...
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 10:26pm Dave Mandl:

I agree with you on Styx and Kansas. Imposters.
Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 10:28pm Droll:

The debate about Kansas being prog is ongoing. Styx was never considered prog, lacking: flue solos, 7/8 time signature, Mellotron, everyone-solo-at-once, album-side length songs, elfin voiced singing about space, etc. etc. There's *NO* prog in Styx. Kansas has at least some of those.

Avatar Sun. 4/21/13 10:32pm Droll:

Starcastle was obviously trying to copy Yes (did a fine job, actually). I think prog already had a bad enough name by the disco era that it didn't require further distorting. The smear campaign never ended, though. Well maybe, Rush got inducted into the RRHoFaM.

Something by Rush must have seemed middle-of-the-road enough to make it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 10:47pm G:

Some Rush could pass for 80s hairband music

Meanwhile, Genesis got int too, for the poprock

There really is a big personal animus between Yes and Ertegun -- check Anderson's lyrics at the beginning of the ABWH album. Ertegun was the main force behind founding the RNRHF.

There is RNRHF animus also from the pro-punk rock writers who are still stuck on hating Yes back in 75-76 or so, as a way of getting punk off the ground. I get it, but is there no statute of limitations?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/21/13 10:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...well - 'less than 2% rock and roll' prob. makes it's point just fine

- Badfinger/Beatles - not an accident of course. The Beatles were pretty much ceasing to be The Beatles by then.
...On the efd/Clay PowerPop throwdown - I think it was Caryn who noted that Power Pop not an esp. commercially successful Genre. Often thot it odd that Beatles are the Biggest Thing Ever, but not the Beatlesque. The Badfinger story is a very very sad one. Some of it is just pure Luck - like The Beatles found a truly caring Manager - *&* a Producer.

- In the beginning, HipHop was talking about Urban Realities *no one else* was talking about *@ all* - except maybe journalists no one read or a few hardcore Punks.
...Then became Bling SelfAggrandizement - which reflected the Reality also.
- One Movement contains seed of another, of course. Or rather - Rap became the New Rebellion - & then the New Establishment, of course. Some of those guys made incomprehensible bank.

While I was offline looking for the Ron Geesin comic, I found an earlier issue I hadn't read. The series is Matt Howarth's Savage Henry o/o Langhorne & Jenkintown PA, but published in Livonia MI. Geesin is a major character, but so is his son, Fraser, as well as Conrad Schnitzler. But this was back in '95. Let me know if you want more detail, and I can provide next week after I actually read #1 (can't remember too much from the other issue.)

Right, I remember. Yes, I love it there. Was there a few years ago.

I don't like to drive, so I wouldn't survive in LA.
