    They're far from the only ones using e-drums, the most famous right now IMO is (+44), but its not surprising that more are using them. I doubt that the majority of bands will use e-drums all the time for a while, but you can see that more small bands are going that way.

      That's way cool, Laystay.
      I loved Tears for Fears in the 80's and it is great to see them back together again and playing big live shows

            Wang Chung (Daza) uses custom kits I created. He's a member here too.

                The links in the beginning are from The Night of the Proms. It's a Belgian show in which classical music and instruments are mixed with modern music. The drummer you see is a member of "The Electric Band" that plays in the show. One pretty much every year returning artist is John Miles. His "Music" became a classic on the show.

                The show actually consists of The Electric Band (above mentionned) and Il Novecento (symphonic orchestra + choir), conducted by Robert Groslot.
