The Saga of the 7 Skins

December 24, 2009

I ran across this uber cool article regarding Ringo Starr’s 7 different Beatles drum heads and what has happened to them over time.. One of them, the first one actually, has never been seen again since a show in Paris in 1964. Very detailed account of the heads. For those out of the know, the Beatles Drop T logo as it is called is actually the 2nd Beatles logo, but that’s another story. Click on Ringo to check it out!

Down in the Lab – Les Vegas

December 17, 2009

The Scariest Band in the World!!! San Diego Voodoobilly gods DEADBOLT rule!!! Up until I heard Shruken Head the disc this little gem came from, I was under the mistaken belief that bands had to be razor tight. DEADBOLT proved that needn’t be the case at all. Attitude and coolness go along way. We played a wicked show at the Bowlarama in LA with these boys.

Baddest of the Bad – Taz Bentley

December 9, 2009

Blasting outta Dallas Texas – The Reverend Horton Heat featuring the one and only Taz Bentley on drums!!! I tried to find a video of this tune with ole Taz on drums but all I could find was his replacements while good they aren’t Taz! I still kick myself for not catching them with Taz when the played right around the corner from my house one dreary night. But sadly I had yet to be educated in the Psychobilly gospel of the Rev.
