First, the band just released their new double-live album: Legacy Live last month. This is a record that every music fan should listen to, and is quite simply...Masterful on every account. It illustrates perfectly how great this band is now, but has always been. They are legends, one of the greatest bands in the history of Southern Rock, and they sound exactly like this live....Every single time you see them. Monte used his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 for this, and that drum has been his main for some years now. He also uses a 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 as an auxiliary.
Secondly, Modern Drummer just did a great piece on Monte that is on-line now, and there is also a spot in the December issue of Modern Drummer. Congratulations Monte, and Thank You for all of your support and friendship. See you guys soon!
