TBT - Before I got started ( and got obsessed) with production my life was all about the drums - This was one of my most fun gigs - Playing drums on JOHN CHRIST's solo album titled FLESH CAFFEINE - John is the original lead guitarist of DANZIG - It was me and him at A&M studio A - This is the slow piece from the record which builds nicely - Good times!!!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Clz24TU1qW8
