This has turned into quite the epic tribute. However, it would be nice if the various outlets (TMZ included) would get the RIGHT name and the RIGHT image for Bob Casale. Some reported it was Bob Mothersbaugh, some highlighted a picture of Josh Freese, who is at best, 41 years old, and looks nothing like Jerry Casale (TMZ, Harvey Levin), and some showed Bob Mothersbaugh, some showed Jerry Casale, the only one who wasn't displayed as the decedent was Mark Mothersbaugh. You people danced to 'Whip It" and "Freedom Of Choice" and "Through Bein' Cool", yet never knew Bob Casale's name, face, or importance.
Camp Freddy Calls It Quits; New All-Star Covers Band ROYAL MACHINES Takes Shape Camp Freddy, the Los Angeles-based "jam" group featuring Dave Navarro (JANE'S ADDICTION, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), Billy Morrison (ex-THE CULT bassist, current CIRCUS DIABLO vocalist), Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES), Donovan Leitch (son of legendary folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (JANE'S ADDICTION, ALANIS MORRISETTE), has officially called it quits.

Looking back, talking about these "Influential Drummer Lists" has made me realize that the drummers that I've looked up to are the ones that I think bring something new and/or special to the craft. What do you guys/gals think? I think I have probably under-appreciated a lot of drummers that just lay down great drum tracks. The comparison that comes to mind is Danny Carey (Tool) vs. Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle). The biggest difference between the two bands is the drumming. Josh Freese's status as a drum-god is uncontroversial. Josh has laid down amazingly solid drum tracks on way more records than Danny. I think there is a good reason: Most bands don't want the drum track to be "interesting" or for their drummer to steal the spot light. However, being able to jump in and lay down pop-song level drum tracks ain't easy! That is going to be something that I'm going to focus on for a while.

Pop Music / WEEKEND REVIEWS September 16, 1996|RICHARD CROMELIN | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES   At the El Rey Theatre on Saturday, Paul Westerberg took things a stirring step beyond the spirited exuberance that keyed his 1993 solo tour, his first after being unshackled from the tensions of the Replacements, the Minneapolis band he led through a colorfully unruly 20-year career.   His fans couldn’t have asked for much more than this show’s range of material and level of execution. Guitarists Westerberg and Tommy Keene, bassist Ken Justine and drummer Josh Freese delivered the leader’s songs with assuredness and ferocity, interlocking with thrilling finesse at high velocity at one moment, then providing the softest of shadings for a tender ballad at the next.   Their empathy and dynamism were enough to give a good name to professionalism. Their tightness wasn’t a matter of being clinical and accommodating. It was a reflection of their respect for the music and the audience.   That professionalism, as w ...
well Tool has a lot of time off, ever think about resurrecting Electric Sheep with Adam Jomes? Get Josh Freese on drums
If Jon Wurster + Josh Freese stand next to each other today at Riot Fest, the world may explode due to funny drummer overload. Here's hoping Fred Armisen stays far far away.
I'm not sure but I think someone tonight compared me to Josh Freese. If you don't know who that is, he is EVERYONE'S go to drummer when they need one. Bands like.The Vandals, Paramore, Devo, A Perfect Circle, Sting, Guns N Roses, Suicidal Tendencies, Weezer, Chris Cornell, Filter, Rob Zombie, Fuel, Avril Lavigne, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson, NIN, Katy Perry, Ween, 3 Doors Down, The Offspring, Unwritten Law, Evanescence, Good Charlotte, Queens Of The Stone Age, Daughtry, Gavin Rossdale, Ricki Martin. Just to name a few.
And what a badass group of drummer assembled!! Jason Bonham, Josh Freese, Pharrell Williams, Matt Chamberlain and many more!
Hey man, did you get Josh Freese yet? He and I also go back to the Dweezil Zappa band days.

DA BOYS SUDDENLY INTEREST IN THE DRUMS OF SLAYER.INSPIRED ME TO HAVE A SNOOP AROUND TO SEE WHAT DAVE LOM IS UP TOO.AND DRUMMERS EH.METAL EH.ALWAYS GOOD FOR A STORY. "Slayer stickman Dave Lombardo is the fifth drummer to pull out of Soundwave in just five days. What's being referred to as the "drummer curse" started on Monday with the news Blink 182's Travis Barker was unable to overcome his fear of flying to make the trip to Australia. That was followed by the withdrawal of The Vandals drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns N' Roses, Devo) and Six Feet Under's Kevin Talley, who succumbed to a "dirtbike mis-hap". Then news emerged of Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante's withdrawal, which came about due to "personal issues". That was followed by Dave Lombardo's unceremonious exit from the Slayer line up on the eve of the first Soundwave in Brisbane. "I want to personally apologize to all of our fans in Australia who have bought tickets for the tour expecting to see me in my usual place on the drums," Lomba ...

"You know, that kid Josh Freese is better at drums than Max Roach. Cooler too"
I will be releasing 2 new tracks in October, "When Universes Collide" feat. Josh Freese and "Anti Me and You" which is me on everything. The release date of the singles will be on Oct 14th and Oct 30th. It's all tentative as I begin work on the vocals in preproduction starting tomorrow. The rest of the album has been pushed back as I have been very inspired by darker sounds entering my mind as of late and will begin writing newer more electronic tracks that sound sort of like a soundtrack to a new Blade Runner movie, I've been very inspired lately and need to get these ideas on this album, I thank all of you that pre-ordered/-pledged for your patience. -^^\/\/\/|\/|vv- In other news I pick up the "Black Sun Bot" shirts tomorrow and they will be mailed out to you immediately.
