    Just look and listen to him go.

    It ain't bragging if you can back it up.

    Huh! Flame away, but I wasn't impressed. Despite the gymnastics and pzazz, I didn't see much evidence of solid rhythmic drumming there. I wonder what the bassist locks onto?

    Usually the bassist locks himself out of his car. Or was that inside his car. I'm sure I just ruined a joke somewhere.

    He looks like quite the showman...
    My band opened up for Slaughter in 1995, as hair bands across the US were burning in the flames of grunge. Not sure if they were ego-maniacs or just super pissed that the day of reckoning for "their brand of rock" had come. Either way, they were not friendly.

    that was my take away too. I'm sure he's capable of playing better parts since he had so much time to clown between hits... but he didn't. so instead of a great drummer focused... i see a mediocre drummer hamming it up.

    now the real question is what would the audience prefer? the mediocre drummer clowning around or the great drummer concentrating? i don't think I'd like the answer!

    You bet he is! It’s over 12 minutes, but it’s free!

    He was late and sloppy at points throughout that performance but I did think it was fun to watch him. And that band doesn’t seem too technically demanding.

    They did have some nice recorded guitar tones, in my opinion. Without needing the qualifier “for a hair metal band.” And old Mark could wail with the best of them circa 1990. Sounds like his voice has toughened up and lost some range since then.

    Dana Strum had fantastic rock bass style and tone on Fly to the Angels, playing that quasi-V-shaped Arbor bass with a P pickup.

    Ahh, I remember the drummer from Slaughter. Glad to see he's still doing things.

    I'm not familiar w/ this band, Slaughter.
    I'm not really up on hair metal bands, and can only hold thoughts of the unfortunate retirement system @ Spinal Tap.
    :eek:
    Appearance-wise the drummer reminds me of a younger Todd Rundgren, but TR might not appreciate this observation.
    I attended a blooz fest in Vegas back in September, and one Chicago blooz band had a Very Animated bass player.
    His parts were basic - so he had time/bandwidth for "dramatic presentation"
    :rolleyes:
    No, I can't recall his name.

    Peace - Deeve

    edit - can ANY of those guys play a proper country shuffle?
