Interview – Steve Taylor

October 16, 2011

Sometimes legends live in your own backyard… Krash Boom Bam recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of my personal favorite drummers Steve Taylor.

What kind of set up are you using?

Mike Van Eyes and Ron Scott saw this kit in New West that was under a car port in a back alley. It has a cool brown/grey swirl to it. I think it’s called root beer swirl. They approached the owners and offered $50.00 for them and I put another $150.00 into them for new drum heads.

They’re some proto-type for maybe premier or Japan models. No name on them. 20″ BD,13″ rack, 16″ floor tom, matching wooden snare that’s 14×5 that I don’t use that much. No name on them…

Everybodies trying to be my Baby – Fluke Holland

October 12, 2011

Fluke Holland drives the rhythm section for this Carl Perkins hit. The stops in this song are where i cut my teeth. Songs like this one are the reason that Carl was voted the King of Rockabilly… and Fluke was right there by his side. Fluke once saved Carl from drowning in a ditch after an accident on their way to New York, for an appearance on The Perry Como Show. Everybodies trying to be my Baby was among the half dozen songs that Carl and the boys recorded after recuperating from the accident.

Woodoo Doll – Tom Stormy

Mystery Gang certainly lives up to their name. I stumbled upon this cool little toe tapper and wanted to post it up and give props to the resident drummer and that’s where Mystery Gang swung into action it took a while but i finally got it Tom Stormy is the drummer in question, skipping along with his piccolo snare, infectious.

Fall Down on your knees – Fox

March 26, 2011

Alright lets change things up a little bit, hailing from Budapest, Hungary we have the Naked Truckers Trio, who suprizingly enough aren’t scared to get naked to rock out. Nice solid playing from the Fox, both clothed and unclothed. Nice use of the maraca on the floor tom to drive it home.. I’ve used this technique a few times in the past, cool to see someone else bust it out… Take it away Fox!!!!!
