This review is from: Mad, Bad and Dangerous - The Book of Drummers' Tales (Kindle Edition)
Strange book! It reminded me of Dave Lee Travis looking to camera and saying "I'm mad I am." Who was he trying to convince? I found this book a bit like that. Drummers are "different", "crazy", things happen to them that wouldn't happen to the bass player .... It feels to me like the author is trying too hard to make his case with too little hard evidence.
There are some interesting stories and it gives a really good insight into touring, recording and the ups and downs of being in a band which were all positives for me, but it didn't convince me drummers are any different to you or me or the rest of the band. Stared to skip more and more towards the end.
