Default Carl Palmer

Not bad for a 68 year old man.

Well, I cannot duplicate his playing, but I can duplicate his age.....................

Is that a start?

To each his own, Carl Palmer has always been one of my favorite drummers.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

It was obviously recorded with a small camera. I thought it was interesting, like being on the stage while he performed.

As a teenage hard rocker in 1973 banging away to Black Sabbath, Grand Funk, Deep Purple, etc., Brain Salad Surgery blew me away when I first heard it. I had never heard a rock drummer play like Carl Palmer before. It opened my eyes (and ears) to the progressive and fusion rock that was emerging at that time (anyone remember Mahavishnu Orchestra?).

Maybe C.P. is not the player he once was, but try to name a more technically advanced rock drummer in 1973. He's still one of my favorites of all time.

Does anyone know the kit he used to record that first Asia album? I simply love that sound. My favorite along with Phil Ehart on Kansas' Leftoverture.
