Chamberlin Joins John Bonham Drum Jam

According to a couple of post's over on Vic's Drum shop facebook page, Jimmy Chamberlin took to the stage last night with a Chicago based Led Zep tribute band for a drum battle...

Imagine seeing the real Bonham and Chamberlin duel - that would have been something huh...

In case you haven't heard if before, go here for Chamberlin (& Corgan) taking on Led Zep's Moby Dick, a couple of years ago.

More Details on Chamberlin's Jazz Record

According to the Chicago Tribune, the record (which should be released sometime this year) promises to be "a high-powered, high-energy affair."   
"It's definitely a jazz album," 
says Frank Catalano of his partnership with Chamberlain and [Percy] Jones. "Yeah, Percy has played on Brian Eno records, and Chamberlin with the Smashing Pumpkins, obviously, but they're such good players in a jazz setting too. "I knew it would be a powerful trio, but it has ballads also."

The record was recorded around Thanksgiving, and they're about to start the mixing process...

As always - more details, when I hear them.
