If guitarists bash a huge kit, wouldn't that be like bashing Steve Vai, or anyone besides Angus Young? He does it because he can, and we love it because we know what is possible. I don't listen to a whole lot of Bozzio, but just knowing he exists lets me exhale now and then.

The same guitar players that are bashing Boz for having a huge kit are the same guitar players that have 50 guitars on racks on stage with them.Are they ever going to play every guitar they have..No!!!Boz's kit is Boz's kit.He can play them all so leave the dude be!!

I think the guitar players are probably just a little jealous...

Q: How do you get a guitar player to turn down?

A: Put a chart in front of him.

"That would require three or four drum techs, which would be a money loser for him."

Terry was on the same bill as us (Weckl band...) for a Sabian show at NAMM 2 years ago. He actually set up almost all his own kit!! Yes, lot's of stuff and he spent a couple hours doing it... almost all himself! Yes, he did have a cartage guy/helper there but he did the majority of it. He's a great guy and very very "musical". As we all know, "music for art sake" does not pay the bills. I commend him on making a GREAT business move by joining Korn. He will bring something new and fresh to the band... Terry Bozzio style. Some will like it and others not. But it will expose new people to his great drumming and "jazz fusion" and that can't be bad. It will benefit all of us in the end by having a wider audience. He surely will continue to do his own stuff on the side with Doug Lunn and Alex. You should expect to see him around for a long long time!

i saw him at a drum clinic and he was talking about his experience with Aloke Dutta, the tabla master. he was talking about how incredibly difficult tabla technique was, even for him. i dunno what that has to do with people bashing him, but either way they shouldn't.
Beat on.

Take your foot of his head.

Bozzio is an amazing drummer. To me, the plain fact that he played with Zappa is enough for me to tip my hat.

i have to say that first im not a fan of his drumming but i have a lot of respect for him because he is a great drummer and to even be able to move around that kit like he does takes some serious skill so even if your not a fan you cant say anything about him.

Hail Hail Hail the king El Tel - The Boz - Terry Tan Bozzio. Everyone has said so much about him it heartens the soul because he is the lord. There aren't many like him. So many players these days are fixated with speed they miss the chance to be musical. Yes Terry has technique and speed but he has absorbed musicality and melody and brought it to the most noble of all instruments. Guitarists, especially, can't understand Terry because they don't understand drumming. Yes we are here to keep time but Terry keeps time, plays the melody and the counterpoints with all the colouring. he is a delight to watch and listen too. More power to his elbow and more drums to his set up, gawd bless him. I do like the idea of taking away guitarists strings and seeing how they would fair on a 3 string for example, I charge all drummers to remove strings from guitarists!!! Ha Ha Ha more power to the drummer. Hail Hail Hail El Tel

I love the drums and I wish I was half the drummer that TB is. I find inspiration in all drummers, especially all of the righteous friends on this site!

I simply do not have time for any negative noise from anyone, period.

I would rather spend my time and energy playing.

If you want to defend drummers and drumming- Just go get behind your set and play. That is the one sanctuary in our lives where nobody can touch us!

Much love to you all!
