Wow what a fun day this was...I had been trying to arrange a drum duel between Detroit Wheels legendary drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek and The MC5's legendary drummer Dennis "Machinegun" Thompson.  Details were just not going with the flow as they say...



Then I got a call one night from Bee and he invited Dennis and me to the People's Art Festival at Russell Industrial Center where he was displaying his paintings.  Bee said if I brought Den down there we could film the two Detroit drum titans together chatting...

Dennis and I set off for Detroit.  Den had just purchased this cool Sony Handycam and we were just learning how to work it.  (Have my own now with lots of practice hours!!)

Richard Peardon and Johnny Bee Badanjek

The guys are old pals and had such a fun time together....I thought I'd post these videos again for my newer friends and readers.....
