Re: Have you got a question for Thomas Broman


I heard a report about JLT during the last HTP tour in 2004, that he was treating the band like s**t, ego out of control, etc. I saw a bit of this strange behavior when we couldn't get in the Bradford Hilton and he tried to kick the door down! I guess the road can get inside your head. I wasn't surprised at all when Glenn killed HTP after this tour as that was what I was told was probably going to happen, and not to expect HTP3.

Any comments?

John

Thanks for the answer Thomas, it's actually nice to see I can guess things about drummers emoticon

And well, another one if you don't mind - talking about 'doing your own thing' while playing - the sound on that night in Moscow was kind of terrible so I can't be sure but it seemed to me you played double kick on Burn - is that right? What's your take on double kick anyway - do you feel it's necessary to (ab)use it when playing heavy music or do you view it as just something invented to enhance the playing, like tom rolls etc?

No absolutely not, he´s always been great to us.

[sign in to see URL] like him. Funny.

Oh yes! Myself included, after a few weeks things usually start to happen. After the tour is over you can just laugh at it and see it for what it [sign in to see URL]´n´roll. I´m sure people on the outside look at it as strange behaviour I can´t blame ém.

I wasn´t either. I think HTP is dead and buried for all time. It was a laugh to tour with them. Musically it was a bit cheezy [sign in to see URL] I enjoyed it.

I might have have done on a fill or two in Burn, not on the beat though that would ruined the song. I´m not really a double kick drummer, sometimes I use ´em for a laugh that´s all, but only in Burn. There´s a million fills in that song, I might have thought that it would add something.

To be honest, I don´t like it at all in most cases, doesn´t groove much does it.
At the beginning of that tour we used to play a song called "Ride the storm", wich I really hated, we took it out of the set later and no one was happier than me. That had double kick through the whole song, didnt have much choice than to play it that way. It sounded like a complete mess live, as I guess you might have noticed.

I think double kick is definetly overrated, it´s mostly drummers that´s not that good or doesn´t have a groove that uses ´em trying to cover that up or something. There are a few exceptions I can think of, Brian Downey managed to use ´em very musically, Cozy Powell on the few times he played double kick, the drummer in Pantera is amazing, Ian Paice used it as well on a couple of songs. I guess that if you use ´em with a more seventies approach it´s allright.


I used to practive a lot of double kick in the eighties as I think most drummers did.
I didn´t play double kick for at least ten years after that and I wouldn´t have started again if it wasn´t for recording an album with John Norum where he thought it was needed.
I use the double kick very sparse and I think you can easily ruin songs if your not carefull with it.
It´s not a bad thing to learn though, it got me some gigs emoticon

Thomas - I edited your last couple of replies to make them read a bit clearer.
