That's a really great art piece, tribute to Zappa as well as Bozzio and a beautiful instrument as well. I know something like that is meant to sit in a glass case, but I'm curious to hear the sound with the 10 ply shell and the black suede heads.
Classy drum. Almost on par with Speedy's fan.
What a beautiful snare drum! I was never into Frank Zappa so, I never heard about "Black Page". I knew of Terry Bozzio, mostly from Missing Person. I am blown away by the intricate patterns! In my opinion this composition is right up there with Rush's "Villa"! I love this Drum Site! It's members and moderator's turning me on to material I've never heard or explored! I've been learning so much! Every time I scan this site my eyes are open to something new! I wish I learned of this Drummers oasis sooner!
Welcome to Official Drummer, LazyBones. We hope you'll stick around and add your expertise to the discussions. I'm sure there'll be members who will want to have a listen to the new CD and ask a question or two.
Scott here from indie label, Lazy Bones Recordings.
I produced the new double CD, BORREGO, by MARCO MINNEMANN (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani, the Aristocrats, Levin Minnemann Rudess.) It's a monster of a record that contains 24 songs (+ 4 tracks exclusive to the CD.)
It also features ALEX LIFESON (on 3 songs) & JOE SATRIANI (4 songs). One of the exclusive CD bonus cuts is a remix of a track featuring Alex and also includes Tony Levin on bass. It's so hard to sell CD's this day and age so of course hoping you'll consider purchasing the album and/or merchandise available.
You can pre-order Borrego now at PledgeMusic (where you'll also receive exclusive bonus content) - http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/marcominneman or, directly from our label: http://lazybones.com/buy-stuff. I greatly appreciate the support and hope you'll help spread the word!
