  • The Who

    We saw The Who last night at Jiffy Lube Live in Virginia for their third show of their Moving On Tour. I noticed that Zak Starkey was playing a DW hibred kit with Remo mesh heads and Roland cymbals. He sounded great and was not behind a plexiglass barrier. The concert was great with a full orchestra for most of it.

    Wow, thatís pretty cool! Wonder if he was using a module or some other source for sound generation. Iíll have to look into it.

    Also, must have been something to see the band and
    orchestra smash up their gear after the show. (They still do that, right?)

      Donít know if he had a module. I couldnít find anything on the web about the kit he used. Fortunately no instruments were harmed during the concert. I saw them in 1975 when I was 21, and everything was destroyed. I never like that because I was broke when I was in high school and I thought they could give the drums to me.

        That's very interesting, jimorlando,
        I've been a big Who fan since 'The Who Sell Out', and I think 'The Who Live at Leeds' is the best live album ever.
        Pete Townshend, (like me), pretty much gave up his hearing for a life of music.
        Zak is a great drummer and a perfect replacement for Keith Moon.
        Thanks for the concert info!

          They may come back to the east coast towards the end of the year and they are also working on a new album. This was their play list.

              Thanks for the set list and video link!
              With that many instruments to mic, I would think that regular cymbals would get lost in all of it.
              It's great that the solution was to use e-cymbals. Yo Zak!

                I saw them back in about 70 I think, when they were still on the up. The Round House at Chalk Farm if I remember right. A very loud experience, and much broken equipment.

                  Super cool, man. Would love to have seen them in their heyday. I have a Who live DVD, which is as close as Iím gonna get! So much fun to watch Keith play.

                  Hereís an article on this tour. Pete talks a little about the rationale for edrums. https://www.billboard.com/articles/c...k_2odS9_quwVTg
