A Drummer’s Lament A Farewell to Peart

 
      Growing up a drummer in the 70’s, you had to know you were in danger of your life being destroyed in some drug related binge, or catastrophe. There was John Bonham, who died on his back, choked by his vomit. Nice. There was Kieth Moon, mortified by a bottle full of diet pills. Bill Ward got set on fire. Levon Helm got the Big Pink Slip from Robbie. That drummer from Def Leppard was barely hanging on to begin with. Ouch.  Cozy Powell died because of low tire pressure. Then there was that dude from The Police, who got his paycheck stolen by some English prig. He spent the rest of his life riding around on horseback, beating the hell out of some guy’s balls with a giant hammer (Polo). It was pretty grim. Personally, I always felt the end was in sight. When I heard what happened to Phil Collins, I knew I had lived too long.
      Moby’s Dick is a 21st Century electric apocalypse dedicated to the memory of Gene Krupa, who believed every song needed An Extended Drum Solo. A reward is offered to the first human able to identify the Gene sample!  Jizt like drummers from the 70’s, drum solos are disappearing fast. Please enjoy it while it lasts.HORRIBLE_NOISES.html
