The snare drum sounded like the drummer was whacking a linoleum floor with a spoon in a large concert hall. Blech.
The drummer from Crazy Horse sounds like he's building a shed, not drumming. I went to see Steve Earle a few years back and his kid came out on stage and played a big galvanized steel garbage can (new) that was hanging from a stand.
On the Green tour Michael Stipe played a metal chair with a metal bar, I think during World Leader Pretend.
