I agree DStar and CC - I am not a drummer nor have I played one on t.v. and I too got turned on in the early '80's. To me Billy's contributions to this band of gypsies was absolutely jaw dropping at times throughout '71-'74..,, I specifcially listen to more and more of these years to hear HIM when he is up in the mix it's a real treat.
