Enjoyed reading this, always nice to read about the nuts and bolts of the music.

Very few people have imitated Brad's style though he's more influential than people may realise. The nearest I've heard to Brad's style of drumming in other bands of the time is on XTC's Living Through Another Cuba. Even the sound of the drums is the same.

...great post... agree with everything Marco says....and the overhead footage gives a brilliant view of Brads effortless technique...have always loved the way Brad drops in his rimshots in just the right measure....never overdoes it but just enough to remind us he's there.....a man truly in command of his instrument Very Happy

i read the whole thing waiting for an ode.... a small poem in brads honour, not a boring interview about drums,

the sound of the drums of john bradbury
is as sweet as some chocs made by cadbury
with horace there with him
hes always in rhythm
and hes still going strong i am glad to see
