When I played drums for the circus
other recordings of cover songs
This is a recording of me playing drums for a show when I was 22 years old. The core band included a trumpet player, a keyboard player and myself, and we traveled with the show on a nine-month tour across the Western United States and Canada. When we played at large venues, local musicians were hired to provide a full brass section. If I recall correctly, this is a recording of a show at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. I simply set a couple microphones on the stage and recorded to a cassette tape. The tape was tucked away in a tattered cardboard box for many years before I salvaged it and transformed it to a digital format.
This section includes new arrangements of popular songs previously recorded by other artists (Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Heart). On all recordings, I play drums, keyboards, and vocals.
