I am still wondering about that being true because in a chat said it would make no difference whether he uses two bassdrums or a twinpedal?!

I think he used 2 drums on 'Live From Oz'. Or at least there are 2 bass drums on the cover!
Perhaps a hundred irate sound engineers signed a petition to stop drummers having more than one bass drum after DT's last tour?

On the G3 tour with Vai he had two bass drums, same thing on the Ring of Fire DVD.
Personnaly I thing it looks more impressive with one bass drum, simply because when you see a dude with two bass drums, you just know he will play them, but when you see a guy with one kick drum the "dougoudougou" thing is more "surprising" (that without thinking of course, just from a first impression point of view... Damn I think I'm the only one understanding my crap!)

Just my personnal opinion,
Me.

Actually, CJ, I know what you mean! If I go to a gig, and I see the '2 bass drums of doom', I always think 'Uh oh....' - you know it's going to be loud!
Only exception, off the top of my head, would be Nigel Olsson with Elton John! I have NO idea why he has 2 bass drums.
Oh well.

Let's also not forget about Tico Torres from Bon Jovi...him having two bass drums, is just like if Larry the Cable Guy were to hook up with Mariah Carey...it just doesn't make sense!

I forgot about Nigel and Tico... I don't get why those guys set up double bass, IMO it's kind of pointless.

Cheese and cake,
Me.

Well, I remember at a few points on Bon Jovi's Crush tour live DVD, Tico plays a few 'blups' (technical term!).
What a thoroughly enriched life I lead.

Ricky Lawson only plays one bass drum, but still sets up two, because he is used to the symmetry of his kit as it is. That, and I think he has back problems that remedy themselves behind a two-bass-drum kit (no unnecessary twisting of the spine).

I think the only people ALLOWED to play two bass drums are: Tommy Aldridge, Simon Phillips, Billy Cobham (whenever he gets the chance), Louie Bellson, Terry Bozzio...(he plays six of 'em now, I think) ....I think thats it. Deen Castronovo too, and Tris Imboden, but that's IT. Everyone else is asking for trouble.

In a live chat, virgil said he's still undecided about what he prefers (pedal/2 basses) but is leaning towards double pedal.
