BLUE OYSTER CULT IN MILWAUKEE-JULES RADINO-BEIER 1.5 STEEL SNARE--6.5 X 14...

Jules Radino was back in town this last weekend, and it was great to see him and the band again. He had along his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 which he has used as his main for the last couple of years. He also owns and uses a 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 15 & 4 x 15. 

I was really looking forward to this show. Their sets are always incredible, and hanging with these guys has always been a complete blast. Jules has used at different times four of my drums live, with the fourth being the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14 at a festival in Illinois last Summer. He is a truly gifted & in depth player, and really is a great friend. Richie Castellano from the band recently did an excellent video on the gear BOC uses on the road, and the link is below. Great production Richie....Thanks for highlighting my drums Jules. 

Jamo Van de Bogert of Greg Allman's band was with me, and it was a lot of fun to have him there. The Tubes were on the bill as well, and really lit everyone up. Jamo also has and uses a number of my drums including the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 14, 5.5 x 15 & 4 x 15. He is yet another player who has been extremely helpful to Beier Drums, and was very instrumental in Fork's picking up my entire line. And that....Has gone stunningly well.    

Always great to see you Jim Mears, Steve (Woody) La Cerra & Andy Ascolese. It is always so great hanging with you guys. And Woody....Thank You. I cannot wait for the publication, and I really appreciate it....Especially coming from a FOH Engineer like you....
