JULES RADINO-LIVE WITH BLUE OYSTER CULT-SUMMERFEST-MILWAUKEE-BEIER 1.5 STEEL--6.5 X 14....

Jules Radino was in town here with Blue Oyster Cult, and I was really looking forward to going out to see these guys.

I have been working with Jules for quite some time, and he has used almost every single one of my drums live at some point. He also owns a 1.5 Steel--4 x 15 and a 5.5 x 15, both of which he has used live. The 6.5 x 14 is his main these days on the road, and has been for some time. I got to know Jules through long-time supporter and friend...Monte Yoho of The Outlaws.

Due to a late night flight cancellation, half of the band had kind of a Spinal-Tap type trip to the show. It was pretty hilarious to hear how they made it there on little/no sleep in several days and a long overnight ride. But as all great bands do....They got up there in front of 10,000 people, and showed why they are one of the most enduring & longest running bands in Rock. The amount of times I have heard and read of them being mentioned as an influence, sometimes seems without end.

It was also great to see Woody at the FOH, and also Jim Mears out with them. Tx you guy's...Great time as always. See you all soon....
