Probably posted way back, but why not again?

Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

That was great to see and hear! Had to Google it, but that is Aynsley Dunbar on drums, but still Trevor Bolder on bass. Hearing Trevor with another drummer is interesting. I'm up to speed with Bowie's Santa Monica live recording from the previous year,but this weird post-Ziggy last hurrah is sort of new to me. Some of the lush schmaltziness of his next phase is starting to creep in, but it is still fundamentally a Ziggy performance. What always strikes me is how closely Bowie's voice paired with Mick Ronson's. On the Santa Monica recording it is like hearing two Bowies.

Unlikely setting for an EB-2.

Wow, they found the place where WASP shot their videos!

To Starship!

To Whitesnake! That's his spectacular drumming on the 1987 album. Tommy Aldridge was just used in the videos and the tour and his drumming has none of the organic (yet sophisitcated) feel Dunbar's has. The over-the-top (yet brilliant) drumming on 1987 is, however, much John Sykes' do who would sing the drum parts he envisaged to Aynsley (but credits him for doing a great job "translating" his guitarist thoughts).

The change from Bowie to Journey wasn't so radical at the time, early Journey was a Santana muso collective with jazzy instrumental forays. When Steve Perry joined for the 4th album he found that Dunbar's drumming was overly busy - Perry was a drummer himself. Legend has it that when Dunbar was late for a soundcheck, Perry took the sticks and everyone marvelled at how different the band sounded with more straightforward drumming. The writing was on the wall for Dunbar then. His successor Steve Smith was even more jazz rock-weaned but agreed to keep it simple for Journey.

Cha-ching! $$$ Sort of like Vai playing with Whitesnake. Those are the perfect opportunities for guys like that to finance their more "artsy" endeavors.

Exactly. Smart move too. I saw that Whitesnake lineup with Vai in Los Angeles. Front row at the Forum (opening for Motley Crue) and they were great. Not quite as acrobatic as Vai and Sheehan (another great show) but still a huge cut above most rock shows of the time. I still remember how crazy it felt to pay $150 for that ticket.  :mrgreen:

He's got a good Ozzy voice; a bit girthier, which is not bad at all.  Those are the driest drums I have ever heard though; get some reverb to relieve that drymouth.

Can't hear the bass at all on this comp (that's a mudbucker for ya).
Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

This is a combo that I wish had actually recorded some tracks. Buddy Miles and Jack are super tight and busy.
