Terry Bozzio, also known as the Devil. Took Zappa's girl Chrissie and his beer before flatulence sent him over a cliff.

...ah yes, but for a time thereafter he dwelled in the city of tiny lights...it's so big, you're so tiny, every cloud is silver liney...don't you wanna go there?

If I do go, I'll remember the words my mama said, "Watch out where the huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow."

Smart, 'cause if you make THAT mistake, you can stab 'n shoot 'n spit but they won't be fixin' it! Where were we now? Oh yeah, Terry Bozzio. One man rhythm section...

Where are we, onsenkuma? Life is so strange when you don't know. How can you tell where you're going to?

Ha! I'd say I see your Zappa references and raise them a Missing Persons reference, but what are words for when no one listens anymore?

Missing Persons? That's what happened to Dale Bozzio after riding Phydeaux III to the wet t-shirt contest, right? Just a token of my extreme...

Bozzio also made up one half of a killer rhythm section with John Wetton in UK (after Bill Bruford left).

...AND Bozzio also played with Jeff Beck on his "Guitar Shop" album. Phenomenal playing.

p.s. Terry appeared on the "Joe's Garage" album, but only as a guest vocalist; drums were played by Vinnie Colaiuta. Terry played drums for Zappa on Bongo Fury, Zoot Allures, Zappa in NY, Studio Tan, Sleep Dirt, Sheik Yerbouti & Orchestral Favorites.

Bozzio is a great drummer....too bad great drumming cant save otherwise medioca LP's like Jeff Becks (was it work shop?)....Beck toured that year with Stevie Ray V & I came away more impressed by SRV (at least on that tour) hands down.
Beck & Bozzio were heavily into their effects & I think that truly "plagued" their sound.
SRV had next to no effects or spare use of them & he went over like gangbusters...I have seen Beck bring the house down in mid 70s & he was using (abusing) Strats & marshall tops with univox cabs then....he might have had 1 peddle on stage.

Someone mentioned Mitch Mitchell.....(he was brilliant & could incorporate blues & jazz into acid rock) ....but pound for pound when it comes to "straight rock" drumming, Moonie is the man (my opinion).

To each his own, Steven, but I love Beck's "Guitar Shop" album. I too saw that '89 SRV/Beck tour, and in fact did so on SRV's home turf (Austin, TX). Despite living here for much of Vaughan's glorious run in the 80's, I'd never seen him live. He played all the time but I was either playing myself, or figured I'd catch him "next time". Well, when he came with Jeff Beck opening, I figured "NOW" was the time. My older brothers were fans of Beck in the 70's, but I only liked a couple of cuts and always found him to be an enigma. I was interested enough to want to see him as an opener though. However, I was most definitely going to see SRV for sure.

I was so blown away by Beck, Bozzio & Hymas though that I could barely appreciate SRV's set because it was just so much more straightforward and conventional styled music compared to what Beck was doing (though Stevie and his band were also on fire that night). They jammed together on the encore (Goin Down I believe...), but I left with Jeff Beck more on my mind and I bought Guitar Shop the next day. It's what made me a true fan and I'll take it over such hallowed albums as "Wired" or "Blow By Blow" any day (though I think he's since done better with albums like "Who Else!").

Bozzio also did two CD's with Tony Levin and Steve Stevens. Just the three of them "gettin down " to business.

zlh67,

As usual :), I agree with you about Guitar Shop. I did see Beck, Bozzio and Hymas open up for Santana (I wish it was the other way around). I think I left after 3 songs from Santana. I just couldnt get into his sound after seeing J.B.
I have seen Bozzio twice doing drum clinics. Once was with Chad Wackerman. Needless to say......mind blowing !! Nice guy too. Very soft spoken and polite. Very receptive to the crowd.
I did see Stevie Ray back in the late 80's. Hows this for a lineup....... Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Rait and S.R.V. ? Stevie was certainly impressive but I was not not blown away. I'm sure if I saw him as a headliner, it may have been different.

Good catch, Snoo! I was listing Terry's better-known credits; his collaboration with Levin and Stevens came to mind, but I figured if I started listing that I'd better list the album he did with The Knack too (yes: The KNACK!) and everything else too! I do have the first album he did with Levin and Stevens, but didn't realize they'd done a 2nd.

I saw that Beck/Santana tour too and thought Santana and his band were solid, but they didn't play a lot of songs I knew and I definitely preferred Beck's set... Even that show though was not quite as mind-blowing as when I saw him in '89, perhaps because I had a much better idea of what to expect and much higher expectations too.

Interesting lineup on the Henley/Nicks/Brown/Raitt and SRV show. Was that a Bridge concert by chance, or some other benefit? Did they all play together or did all of them do a short set separately?

VIVA -- tough break, my friend! Hopefully you caught Stevie before (or after) that tour! That '89 tour was the one and only time I saw him so I'm definitely glad I caught that one!

zlh67,

He also played on a Richard Marx (yes: Richard Marx!) album !!!

That concert was a benefit for something in Tucson back in the early eighties. They all played a set and then brought the house down with a half hour jam session as an encore ! Very cool.

I saw him twice...once high and once not...
The high show was over the top with him running up and down the neck of his guitar with his feet!
The second he headlined over Greg Allman and Charlie Daniels...front row center...fantastic night from begining to end!

"Oh man Rick Buckler hands down.
Just kidding. Who the hell is Rick Buckler?
<<He drummed for The Jam.>>
Oh, okay.
What the hell is The Jam?"

Best, funniest posts I've seen. I was wondering the same thing.
