    Here is a video of Joe Morello on Conan. At 3:31 he drops a stick, reaches into his stick back and pulls a mallet, tosses that and reaches for another mallet, tosses that, get the stick he was searching for and continues. If you listened to the audio with no video, you probably wouldn't know anything was going on.

    However....

    Joe Morello is simply fantastic!

    ...he plays those hats reeeeeal low. Wonder if that was his stand or he liked them that low?

    Those 1123 Ludwig Hat stands are sweet. Very light too. I don't think it's too low. Maybe his snare is/looks a little high and angled.

    I had the pleasure of studied with Joe Morello and,became friendly with him. On occasions I've given him a ride home and,even stopped for a beer. We would talk about a lot of things,mostly drumming and drummers.I can only speak for myself that he was one of the nicest celebrities I've ever met. More than that,when you sat next to him and watched some of the things he did,you would be blown away. As you can see in some of the videos posted.

    I won't argue. He's no Dave Clark, but he'll do.

    I must have caught him on a bad day. As I've posted before, he seemed totally disinterested in anything about drumming.

    We did go for lunch, which was steak with Heinekens and vodka shots for him, discussed whether it was fingers or wrists that gave you speed. That seems to be a debate of a sort he had going with Buddy Rich.

    When I left, he asked me when was the next time I would be at Buddy's club, and to tell Buddy that it was fingers that made you faster.

    That took place in the mid-'70's when he was teaching at Dorn&Kirschners in Jersey.

    Did he still have that silver sparkle set in his studio?

    He did. O.ne day I was teasing him about a song he did Blue Rondo Ala Turk, I told him I would show him how it was done. When I was finished he got on those drums and effortlessly played the tune while talking to me. If anyone knows that tune he just knocked me out.

    His melodic nature was so incredible with the drums as well as his natural interpretations of polyrhythms. Truly a legend.

    I wish I had the chance to meet Joe, sit and talk drum talk pour down a couple of beers, I think he would have been a lot of fun to be around.
