UNSUNG HEROES OF THE EIGHTIES (Part One)

Drummers!

One of the coolest, and greatest, drummers of the eighties is the man who inspired this post, the incomparable Myron Grombacher.






















Drumming for Pat Benatar, Myron won the Stump Joe Peeps Award (Great Look, Great Drummer) in 1981, 1982, and 1983.


Kenny Aronoff put up with John Mellencamp. That alone is commendable. He never won the Stumpy Joe Peeps Award though.

Myron Grombacher! great post - Myron Grombacher is the dude who looks like Martin Short's crazy brother.

Great Drummer - let us not forget he played drums for Lita Ford on the album LITA!
 
I had a hell of a time trying to find a photo of him, not much out there, but I'm glad I found the Ludwig ad, I love that kit. That kit, and the forementioned Martin Shortness, made him so fuckin' cool.
 
I perfered Stumpy Joe Childs...

I saw that kit up close in Richmond,VA after the show in '82. It was the first racked kit, way before anyone else did it. The rails crossed under the bass drum in an X with a cradle that clamped the rear hoop. Beautiful set with the chinese letters and the grid pattern. Jeff Chonis did the design. Way cool...
