So many fantastic musicians passing away lately...it's so sad
Fantastic drummer. Rust in Peace is my probably my favourite album of all time. Nick had such an energy as the video GB posted, shows.
Nick for me was like George Lynch. Not the greatest technicians or most talented but, had some sort of lyrical quality in their playing that makes them stand out from the crowd.
Still the only drummer I know of that was credited with playing "Lead Drums" on an album.
Rest in Peace Nick.
that must have been really scaryI had a drummer pass out on us while we played once. He was still a teenager so it wasn't health related as such, he just keeled over mid song.
It was totally unexpected, and for a short time I didn't know what was happening, I was just thinking, gee, he's really listing sideways, he better be careful, but then he had fainted and we had a short break.
I think it was the stress of playing his first gig with us, with his father, who is a great drummer, in the audience. I can't imagine what it would be like if that had happened and he hadn't recovered.
Man, hearing about this stuff makes me wonder what kind of stuff could happen when my band eventually gets on stage...It was pretty surreal, especially as it was totally unexpected. I wouldn't expect anyone I know to keel over, and that's the first time I've seen anyone faint.
maybe he just tired himself out slamming on the drums so hardWe mostly figured it was a heart attack, just unexpected due to his age, and considering he would have been in pretty good shape.
It took me a while but I think I got your joke. "Someone" gassed the drummer, yeah?.....lol...
