"An album. They were just in town with rumors, right? And they will play it from the first song to the last song in the album. Note for note exactly note for note. They all dress in some sort of black. They do not engage with the audience. They play the album. Yeah. And these guys, it's a Canadian group, but they have locals that come in, like someone like you, hey, Phil, we're going to be in and we need you to play, you know, guitar. But you have to audition and be that good for them. Right. And it was absolutely mind-blowing because watching this dude play Led Zeppelin to on the guitar. Really? The same sounds just like them. Then when they're done with the album, that's when they kind of take a break, they come out, then they loosen up and they do like the greatest hits. Right. And they'll interact a little with the crowd, you know? Dark side of the moon, which is amazing. Amazing to see them do that. Yeah. But yeah, this is definitely a difference between cover bands and tribute bands. And I attribute bands, yeah. Yeah. A lot of Led Zeppelin cover bands on there, right? Yeah, yeah. So you got to think your best with very special guest, sublime with Rome, right? Not going to see sublime with Rome. Although he was one of the key members of the band the original members and Bad Bunny, then audio echo and the pantera experience see, it's really nothing coming up. I can sync my teeth into. Right, you know? Right. You're going to go see staley down and no. Probably not. Yeah. Have you ever go to that club over here on E spoke, the funky funky biscuit? Funky biscuit. I was gonna see us going to see the motels there. Oh. But I something came up conflicted with the night they were playing. But I would have loved to have seen them there. Yeah. But I haven't been there, no. I was a years ago forever. It was like a piano dueling dueling pianos, like two guys at two piano space of each other and they were doing whatever it was a good show. But it's a nice club and it's a shame that I mean, they have a lot of roving bands, but it's a small club type of situation. I know Simon Phillips was there a couple of years ago I tried to go, but it wasn't able to get there.

"Now i understood what i was doing with it and that was a big key for me and then everything my plan would take off from that because now all of a sudden i understood. I could go a lot farther already doing so. Yeah education yup greatest drummer of all time through your eyes. oh The key thing being my is probably the greatest drummer all ties. Buddy rich young And nobody had better technique than him. You know it's like it's like going to a restaurant and you see ten things on the menu. They all taste great but the different they taste different shirt. I always saw no purpose in aspiring to be a drummer that was in the middle. I i always look these guys at the top. That i know i was never gonna reach and that kept me at least moving forward. So simon phillips is probably one of my favorite drummers and this guy's played on five hundred thousand records. He's played with everybody in anybody. You probably know. Toto But before that he did all the pounds and records and you play who and he just did every pop record that came out of the seventy s and eighty s. he was on one of my big influences. Terry bosio played with frank zappa and just huge And then he played with u. k. And then missing persons and he's just a mantra drama and two totally different drummer. Yeah but for me the the drummer that just inspired me the most was a mitch. Mitchell jimi hendrix. And just just would do some things. There's some little bits and pieces on some of the records. That i can point to that. Just just blows my mind. How it did it you know. He was great guy. I want to thank you for taking the time to chat with me for joining the show. i wish you all the best with zebra. The the studio thing you have going on. I asked the listeners. To like sharing.

"Now. I think this actually to showcase eric carr who. I'm not a big eric car fan. But i really don't think it's his fault. I think we only saw the tip of the iceberg in kiss of what he was capable of but i think he does really give them a shot of energy and move them into this slightly more technical hard rock zone creatures in the night analyze asylum. So this era of the band. I think and they you know for for all their for all of jeans and paul's making the drums simple and and making the drums. Not the start of the band dates. They sure had the drums loud in this band and And that's and that's eric. So so we're talking loud snare drum loud bass drum. I think personally for whatever reason and there's probably like i say isn't the drummer's fault but for whatever reason. The grooves are really stiff on these kiss albums. But i think eric is is a great example of a drummer that comes in and changes the situation because in a lot of cases you know. A drummer can't change a situation. And though i wanted to give a couple other examples of this obviously when scott travis comes into judas priest's that really gives them a kick up the but i mean dave hall and is literally drumming and becoming less around And into the point where at the end he's kind of replaced by drum machines So when scott comes in this band Kind of realizes they have a lot more versatility to do a lot of different things in obviously they. They give him the floor to open painkiller with that signature. Drum flurry Which is really nice of the guys to say. Hey everybody like here's our new drummer. Check this out and they become a band transformed on painkiller and it does well and it does gold and it gives them a new shot a life another example Where this kind of happened was was when simon phillips came into the band for sin after sin this one was suggested on the facebook page by nathan carson and by the way i picked yes changes over my other examples because i wanted to give tribute to a good buddy. Mind jeb right That was his suggestion. jeb had classic rock revisited. For all those years legend in the business And did all these great great interviewer. He did all these great interviews at the site but that was his suggestion on that one But eric carr was was suggested by horace accordia. Cordier have horse. How do you pronounce your last name. Let me know But but yeah nathan carson came up with the idea of simon phillips and that is a great example as well because you know the drumming was not was not a big feature of rocker roller or sad wings but the drumming is a huge feature of Of the sin after sin out everybody remembers those fast grooves in those jazz fusion. Things that this young curly-haired haired Eighteen years old or so. Simon phillips came in and applied to judas. Priest it was he was not coming from a heavy metal place but he comes in and he really like raises the intellectual gray matter gray matter factor on judas priest's so everybody remembers the great trump performance on that album outshines the rest of priest. You can't outshine You know the the amazing the the amazing rifts. That are being written by k. k. And glenn and you've got in there and you've got this great you know. Obviously you know super vocalist with a lot of charisma in rob. So it's not really an outshine thing but it but it's bringing a drummer in who actually transforms a ban and the last example. I wanna give in. This department is one. I've said many times nigel. glock coming into saxon. Wow what a difference he made on power. Glory power and the glory completely You know raising the energy level to the nth degree the power the the production was amazing but but he could turn the simplest of saxon songs. And that's what saxon did they wrote. These simple catchy songs you know i. I almost call them like a kiss band The kiss like whitesnake and saxon are like the kiss of the new wave of british heavy metal in a way right You know. Let's not get into whether waste makes a new album or not but but the point is is that There are some pretty simple songs on power of the power and the glory at that nigel completely transforms by those great fills and the energy and the bashing of all the symbols and stuff. So there's a. There's one two three four drummers that that that transformed a ban that kicked them to the next level all right. Let's move on. Here's our forth example. Take listen this peter. Gabriel with i have the touch.

"Take your album. Flip it over at the credits. The track sequence does does it start with victim of changes. Yeah on all the original pressings. It does not start with the rapper. Know they they flipped it around. It's a it's a concept down. It starts to prelude goes to tire genocide epitaph island domination. Then you're besides starts with victim of changes. I think this is a con novel. I think they made an air in manufacturing. And you're beside became your day side and vice versa. And once you listen to it in the correct order which i re sequenced mine on On the cd it makes sense. It tells a story. Yeah even looking at the track listing on here. And i never even thought about that. Before that makes total sense why would prelude be the beginning of side. B prelude should be the album introduction. Right exactly i never makes perfect sense. Why would you lead off alma. Victim of changes. Yeah it's a fantastic song. I mean come on But it makes no sense as track one to to start off an album nearly eight minute song through it. It's more of a mid point of an album song. You need something to build to. The whole first side does not getting to my favorite the river without a doubt. I mean you get all the elements that you expect from priests distill down into one sub. Three minute raging slab of birmingham grit or vocal on this one. I love rob's voice and just the way he sings it and some. I like the stabbing vocal about jack. The ripper stabbing vocals there. You go and the guitars and the drums and the bass There's like elements on this song. Get like the flange and tremolo from the guitar that they used a lot on winter on the previous album but now it has a meaning now. It fits into a song and isn't just like guitar. Wangari nice. I'm gonna totally go back. And listen to this the way you talked about because that sounds never really thought about listening to it that way and i bet a bunch of our listeners are going to be doing the same thing as a concept album about evil i mean the prelude is is Golic paul stanley in my head declaring now it gets rough after the end of prelude against irons. And then you you talk about like the evil guy. Sins genocide and then. Where's where's it happens happening on the island of domination. Then you get the victim of changes so it to me maybe not just been drinking a bit too much vodka that night but it seemed to make sense now. It's yeah and yeah i was. I picked up. Attaf also is the worst. But it's i still like it though. It's it's good but it's kind of it. it has a clean sound to it. Like i i. I hear a little bit of queen in certain things on these early records. And i wonder i think they were. I think they were an influence on them and there was that they were direct influence on a song. I'll talk about another album but Yeah i would pick that worst but like this is i mean once you get past the first one. i think. They're like basically perfect albums without. Maybe maybe a weird one here and there. But i never. I really don't skip anything after that. Epitaph sounds unfinished. It's my least favorite on the album. It sounds like trying to do freddie. it's operatic. It's very queen with the piano. The vocal the harmonies. But it sounds like he mean without the rhapsody budget priest in so there. There's a there's a difference you know they didn't quite have freddie mercury's artistic vision of how to do things in the studio and they certainly didn't have any budget to be recording at so only for that reason. It feeling unfinished unrealized as it mildly favor. Yeah right and the cover is one of the coolest album covers of any band ever. i think. Yeah i've always wanted to have like a like a framed print of the painting of that come back tattoo of it. My wife will the The new three d. cover that came out for record store. Day was like Kind of embossed with texture really. Yeah i thought that was great. And i think the somebody put up to my either. Maybe it was from that or somebody created a three d holographic image online. You could look at on. So that brings us to april of nineteen. Seventy seven and sin after sin comes out i. This is kind of their major label. Debut because they're not on gull anymore. They're on columbia and Produced by deep purple basis roger glover and their only album to feature drummer. Simon phillips who was a great drummer The i'm sure you guys know the story about roger glover getting brought in on this like they were gonna they were gonna produce this themselves and columbia her finally heard like the rough mixes and freaked out and and flew. Roger glover like literally overnight to to work on the record and save it he failed. You don't like this one this. This album sounds like garbage. You know even when i was fourteen years old listening to an like. This sounds like junk i mean. The production is absolutely horrible than the quality versions. The previous two albums to meyer. I think it's flat. it's muddy. it has absolutely no separation or sonic brightness throughout this just has no definition it is a little flat compared to the first two. I agree with that. Doesn't have the brightness musically. I guess sonically as the first two albums have and not quite as good as the first two albums. I don't think. I mean there's four songs on here that i loved. I think by priests standards are eights. Nines and tens but overall Anther some weaker spots on this album to salman say i least-favoured on here probably. Oh man i don't know it's kind of a toss up i'll go with here. Come the tears as my least favorite and my favorite off of sin after sin which i love center. I love star breaker. I really loved dissident aggressor. That's one of my all time favorite pre songs. But you just can't mess with that cover man. And i never knew it was a cover when i was a kid or when i was when i first heard this i had no idea was a cover. But so awesome diamonds.
