John Boy Bliss

When I was a kid I wanted to play the drums…..from 1969 until 2011 I played yamaha. Ludwig. Rogers. Gretsch. Plus several home made kits….. Then one night in melbourne I sat behind a set of drums that played me…. Fidock drums…i realised I had been kidding around…here was a kit that hummed when you sat near it…. These are drums that beg you to sing them…… Bloody scary is how I would define fidock drums…..
