Watching Danny Carey Rip A 3 Piece Kit Live!
Hello all! I was in Winnipeg Manitoba about 5 or 6 years ago to see A Perfect Circle play. Opening for APC was Pigmy love circus.
Before the show, myself and the buddies I was going to see the show with were at a bar called The King's Head Pub in Winnipeg. We were at the bar shootin' the shit, when who walks in the door...a rather tall man I must say, but it was Danny Carey who walked in.
Me and my friend immediatley recognized him and approached him. We asked him, if he was who we thought he was, and he assured us that yes, he was Danny Carey of TOOL!
We were so excited. We sat down with him, had a short convo about what I cant really recall then shook his hand. Unreal! It gets better.
Upstairs at this little pub there was a jazz band playing on a tiny little stage. So we ventured up there, and before we knew it, they had invited Danny on stage to play a song with them...as soon as we heard the man on the mic call Danny up, we grabbed the closest seats to the stage and enjoyed the show!
He played a tiny little 3 piece jazz kit, and shredded it! Me being a drummer, it was one of the most memorable moments of my life, that I dont think I will EVER forget! Fuckin' great time, Danny Carey is one of the greatest drummers of our time!
