Beats On

Ask Katy

Dearest Katy, firstly, let's keep our minds out of the gutter, my question is for Roger. Besides the normal drum setups, what else have you "beat on" with your sticks to create sounds? (i.e. trash cans, metal poles, hollow tree trunks etc...) and has any of this made its way into a song? Best wishes, Scottymac

"Hi Scotty, as I kid I used play on all sorts of things, telephone directories, pots and pans, furniture (to my mum's enormous distress) but luckily, none of it ever made its way onto a record! Thanx, RT"
