That is the most obnoxious drum kit I'm ever seen. That bass drum over his head should fall on him during one of his solos.
Dude, Country Girl is awesome.

They have a lot better songs than Country Girl but i never thought it was a bad song. It has a good riff and the lyrics are decent.

Couldn't agree more. My ears always seem to hear drums over bass at live shows. At a H&H show that it a total travesty. I think Geezer is one of the best bass players to ever live. Add in the fact that he wrote almost all of Black Sabbath's early lyrics (sorry Ozzy fans, but it's true) and he might be Top 3. He is a musical genius in every sense to me.

That being said I've seen Vinny Appice live 6 or 7 times and I hate to say it but he might be the worst live drummer I've ever heard. He botches basic shit way too often for me and his fills are weak. I used to joke that he was Dio's bodyguard and that's the only reason Dio kept him around. I remember a Dio show when he flubbed twice during Don't talk to Strangers almost ruining a great song.

These days when someone needs an obnoxious kit like that it might be because he wants people to remember the kit rather than his playing. I know a ton of people who think Tommy Lee is the best drummer who ever lived because his drum kit spun in the air. hahaha
