Somehow he lost his talent behind all those drums. Hey Terry, lose the ego and start playing again! You lost me with the melodic thing.

The link above is exactly what I am talking about. The look on his face tells the whole story.

Boring!

Thats funny. You guys are truly humourous people. I totally understand your points. I should have stated that I am a huge Terry Bozzio fan and have seen him play everytime he comes to our area.

It just seems like his kit keeps getting bigger and bigger and his ego is too. I know he is capable of sooooo much more and that is my point. I don't understand the melodic approach he has been touting now for quite some time. I always figured it was a phase he was going through but he is still stuck on playing melodically as opposed to moving onto something more interesting.

I loved what he did with Polytown and Jeff Beck but haven't seen him play live for a long time. I live in Sacramento and the only time we see him is when he is doing clinics. So maybe I need to see him play out sometime.

His face always made me think he was in terrible pain when drumming... He never seemed to have an ego to me.

You guys crack me up. It's amazing how witty a lot of people are here but reading some of the "other" threads shows some are also very angry.

I loved Bozzio's solos with ZPZ! So there! It was a real treat to see him perform. He might have been in pain depending on when you saw him, since he pulled a muscle in his arm somewhere in the tour (that was after Chicago, I believe).

I saw him with ZPZ at the Warfield theatre after the injury. He sang a couple of songs then came out later and played one armed with Joe Travers playing at the same time...

He's 57. Give him a break. He's doing quite good for his age. (And BBP's link was quite nice; a melodic solo; fine.)

He is a fantastic player, I dont know why some of you dont like his playing "anymore"....

Dec 27, 1950. It's incredible isn't it?

(ps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Bozzio Check out what parts his drumkit is made of...)

Joe Travers didn't impress me at all. I was at the Warfield show.

I like what Terry is doing now I just wish he would play more rudimental stuff in his melodic solo's. I can watch drumming all day. In fact I think I'll go watch DCI quarterfinals today.

Exactly my thoughts but written so much more eloquently!! I wish he would play more rudimental. You said exactly what I mean't all along!

I have a funny story....

I was at the Warfield show as well but I was sitting near the back of the theatre and I can't see as well as I used to. All during the performance I thought Travers was Bozzio. I swear!. I kept thinking that he looked different and had adopted a new playing style.. hehe

Then, they announce Terry would be coming out but couldn't play due to his injury. So I had a "dumbo" moment there. I did like Travers playing style but it was nothing compared to Bozzio with Zappa back in 1977. That show changed my musical path overnight and changed Mr. Bozzios life forever.

I'm so out of the loop that I am just finding out Bozzio joined the "band" Korn for a short time during 2007 before pissing them off regarding money and quitting...

Anyone else know this?

He was a part of their backing band. He thought he was actually joining the group and demanded a full share even though he wasn't actually a member of the band. The "band" consists of the members that were on their first few albums. After the guitarist, Head, quit the group, they enlisted a group of backing musicians for their tours. Bozzio was brought in for their untitled album when their original drummer, David Silveria, quit.

Yes !!! Go buy, Buddy Rich Live in 78, DVD. This was a great tour, the band is Brilliant! Steve Marcus on sax, and a friend of mine on Bone. I highly recommend this DVD to all Drum fans.
