Guter Zappa Ratschlag von 1974: „Don’t eat the yellow snow“
>>Get rid of all that shit. Just keep a bass drum, snare, and hi-hat. When you master that, then maybe I’ll add another cymbal or drum.<<
Als Beweis natürlich noch einen T.T. Groove-Meilenstein mit ebendiesem „fast Nichts“:
>>I remember my drums were set up in the room, and there was a door that led to a hallway. The engineer, Jason Cosaro, took a tube the size of my bass drum and built this tunnel from my bass drum all the way out into the hall and up the stairs. It was this weird thing he hooked up. And it worked. The groove in the house was so thick, and what am I playing? A simple, Boom-Bop-Tish-Bop-Boom-Bop. It was unbelievable – I locked into that with everyone else swinging, and it brought the walls down.<<
