    I saw him with journey, a great drummer, but in the light of what happened, certainly a dodgy guy.

    I had no idea about that, but I saw him play with the Dead Daisies recently, and he was very good.

    These are some of my drum heroes.

    I have been to many drum clinics over the years, but these were the guys that l wanted to get my picture with.

    I've met and talked to Corky Laing of Mountain several times and Carmine Appice a few times. Being in my '60's, I wish back in the day musicians were as accessible as they are now. Would have met some epic drummers!

    You might think they’re more “accessible” now but that’s only because of social media and email and such. I’ve emailed a number of famous drummers and gotten replies but to actually meet them? Not as easy. I would think that a lot of the guys from your era were probably WAY easier to acutally meet after a gig or out on the street.

    It was my rotation off from crewing in my small department, but we flew Peter Erskine recently. I was so bummed. But a good chance it might happen again.

    I did get to have dinner with this guy a few times.

    I know people that have simply hung on the street with the likes of Metallica, or in bars with Guns N Roses. Nowadays you're not meeting Metallica without paying the £2100 cost for the VIP meet'n'greet. I'm not even sure if GnR do those (probably do). A lot of it is to do with how big the band became, and a knock on to that is the venues they play. This time meeting Mike was outside a small venue where the bus parks out front and they exit onto the street to board it. When Mike was playing with DT you'd never have got the chance as they were nearly always playing Wembley Arena (over here) and all the buses and trucks have a compound behind the venue behind security gates. Even before blowing up venues became a thing, fans weren't getting behind the gates and shutters where the band would come out the building and board the bus(es).

    But I do agree about the social media thing - I think now it's so much easier for people to post pictures, recount tales, etc, and coupled with the cultural changes in society (being less arrogant and more humble), bands and artists understand that blowing off fans can easily come back to bite them, so they make more effort for face time. That, and a lot of the artists we look up to have aged and matured, and with that comes being a bit more laid back.
