    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.

    But I'd also argue that AC/DC meet numbers 2 and 3 on your list.
    ..and #5.

    That describes the "Remote Luxury" snare sound pretty well.

    When I was in high school, I very briefly managed a couple of acts. One was a guitar playing folk singer with percussion accompaniment, a guy playing a briefcase. He did give me my only live performance when he was booked in to a church coffee house and couldn't go on stage because he'd taken a horse tranquilizer (so I was told). So I jammed with his other guitarist. One hour of blues riffs - snooze..... He did perform at the open afternoon for high school kids at Reflections though, but then again that's not saying much. The scene was this 16 year old punk "music executive" sitting with the manager of Zino's auditioning. God love him, he was decent enough not to laugh us out of the joint.

    1967 PCP is marketed under the name Sernylan as a tranquilizer and anesthetic for animals.

    On Hotter than Hell it sounds like Peter Criss is flattening hamburger patties, not drumming.

    Yikes! I knew he was into some nasty stuff, but that's way ahead of the curve. I was lucky to stay away from that end of that group of folks.

    If my brain were working better, I'd love to involve myself in this discussion.

    Instead I think I'll just watch these a hundred million times. This just about made my week:

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
