Rock’s Most Iconic Kick Drum Heads Posted by Mr. Moderator Jan 172014 That’s what I’m talking about! I would argue that Ringo’s Ludwig kick drum head with his band’s logo is more iconic than The Beatles logo apart from the context of that drum head. And that’s not the only Ringo-related kick drum head that is burned in our brains: Pages: 1 2 3 14 Responses to “Rock’s Most Iconic Kick Drum Heads” diskojoe says: 01/17/2014 at 9:30 am Thanks, Mr. Mod for putting this up & giving me the chance to kick things off. I would start off w/this: http://www.bradcoweb.com/rockgroups/kinksThe_Kinks_01_gr.jpg & here’s the group that got me started me thinking about the topic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrMLZBb8cMY 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 01/17/2014 at 10:16 am And the dual bass drums of keith moon: http://www.carlolittle.com/savages/keith0009.jpg 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 01/17/2014 at 10:37 am Yes, the following moments are what I had in mind: http://youtu.be/FYkGimCrcRg http://youtu.be/KmQKMHIx9fU I was first thinking of the Monterrey bass drum head, but I didn’t realize that had a different logo. 0 High Five cdm says: 01/17/2014 at 1:56 pm I love the audacity of Roger Taylor’s: http://www.queenconcerts.com/inc/instruments/1980_game/1980_drums.jpg Rob from Beretta 76 has his kick drum done the same way. It’s cool. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 01/17/2014 at 2:00 pm Yes! Is Rob’s drum head a direct nod to Taylor’s? I never made the connection. 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 01/17/2014 at 3:06 pm I like Alan White’s: http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/157703/Alan+White.jpg This guy seemed pretty iconic: http://unclejoe.com/onair/onairart/10bonhamDrm.jpeg 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 01/17/2014 at 3:10 pm Bonham’s head is definitely iconic. I do like that shot of Alan White’s drums. I never paid attention to his set-up. He plays a lot of drums, but he seems to be playing a pretty small bass drum. Also, what’s that finish on the kit? It looks cool. Is there a drummer in the house? 0 High Five k. says: 01/17/2014 at 3:47 pm I thought this was iconic but I found out it was only used once: http://www.feelnumb.com/2009/11/03/chaka-tagged-on-dave-grohls-drums-in-smells-like-teen-spirit-video/ 1 High Five k. says: 01/17/2014 at 3:50 pm Yes, but Moonie had to replace his bass drum way more than the average skin thumper. 3 High Five cliff sovinsanity says: 01/17/2014 at 5:21 pm Can’t talk about drummers without mentioning Neil Peart. I immediately thought about this iconic set which he used for a few years. http://2112.net/powerwindows/downloads/wallpaper/R30neilraft.jpg I’m curious what y’all think of the photo. Too much? or Too cool? 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 01/17/2014 at 5:38 pm How about Meg White’s red and white swirled candy drum? 1 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 01/17/2014 at 7:37 pm Definitely, that was one diskojoe talked about with me offline! 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 01/18/2014 at 10:49 am He’s just keeping his options open. 0 High Five RaoulG says: 01/19/2014 at 2:43 am Mo Tucker(‘s)? aloha LD 0 High Five Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
