Be Llyrious

Sometimes it’s the simplest, stupidest things which spark a memory.

And whenever I hear this song, in my opinion the greatest record to air-drum to, I’m transported back to the flat Llŷr and I used to share.

And there he is, proudly sitting on the sofa, massive grin on his face, air-drumming along to this, as I sat opposite on my recovered chair with a washing up bowl for a seat, desperately trying, flailing and failing, to do it with as much style and accuracy as he did (I never got the hang of imaginary tom-toms).

Queens of the Stone Age – No One Knows

There’s two reasons I think that’s not only a great record, but also a great record to air-drum along to: Dave Grohl (who actually plays drums on it) and Llŷr (who didn’t but would have made a pretty darned good fist of it, I reckon).

More soon.

  1. First it giveth is a must as part of my practice sessions. But actually any of the songs on this album are awesome to drum along too. With or without actual drums.
