    Default Bobby Rondinelli

    Forgive me if this has been discussed before but i really like Bobby Rondinelli’s drumming, especially with Rainbow. He has such a cool style.
    Anyway, some interesting info i recently came across. Bobby Rondinelli was the actual drummer on the Scorpions “ love at first sting” album. Herman Rarebell was credited but it was Bobby on the drums as well as a different bass player. One thing though, the song “ rock you like a hurricane” sounds remarkably like Rarebell not Rondinelli. Thoughts?

    I've followed Bobby now and again over the years but I'm really liking his stuff with The Lizards these days.

    He definitely has a unique style about him. I love his improv solo during this song ...

    I have met Bobby several times as I have played with both of my bands at an open mic he hosts in my town. He's a friendly guy, good sense of humor, and obviously a monster player.

    I saw him again last night. I went with my bandmate who gave him some of his company's drum mics to try. He was very appreciative and talked to my bandmate at length about what he needs and looks for in drum mics.

    If you see him again, ask him about recording the scorpions album.

    What does he use? I know he's used Audix, Shure, and Sennheiser in the past.

    Just wondering what mics he prefers these days ...

    Bobby was at my gig last night. There was a high school reunion happy hour at the bar we played that afternoon, and the organizer asked us to start the gig earlier so their people could catch it. I assume Bobby was there for the reunion. The funny thing is, I saw that here was there, and as I was setting up a woman came up to me and said, "You're with the band? My boyfriend is a drummer, he's played with Black Sabbath..." I said, yeah I know Bobby! She said "come say hi", and I did. He didn't stay much longer but he did watch me sound check my drums.
