Thunder drummers?

Postby drinkinblackcoffee » Wed Apr 01, 2009 10:24 pm

To celebrate the passing of Johnny Thunders, my buddy Chips is going to come into town to play some songs with me. We were thinking this year we could do it with some drums. Are there any drummers that were big enough Thunders' fans that they would learn a handful of songs to rock out with us for a night? Not a gig, just a one off in my garage to do for fun and to celebrate the legend.

Dude shut up and none of what you just said matters. I say that on the basis of having Chips shred on a guitar on a stage in Madison is far more important than any arguments against nostalgia. That dude is a freaking metal wizard.

"You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory" is a Thunders song.

I ran into Chips at the Dise on Sunday night. It was cool catching up a bit.

Cosmic Thunders!

I just discovered that Johnny Thunders played all over this record I've been diggin' as of late: The Automatics Missing LP/Walkin' with the Radio on (depending on who released it)
Noodlin'-o-rama - Damn good.



I don't think Johnny Thunders paid any attention to drummers anyway - so don't let the lack of one stop ya.
Have fun rockin' out!

The Johnny Tribute thing is a just a tradition we're trying to keep alive. We've done it acoustic in the past, once right in Room 37 of the St. Peters' Guest House in NO on April 23rd. That was a long drive.
Just looking for a way to switch it up a bit this year, so I was hoping to find a drummer so Chips can do the solos electric. We'll carry it on either way.

I'd play some drums for some songs. I'm not in town until Sunday though.
