Terry Bozzio - Composer Series album review
An exhausting musical marathon from the ex-Zappa drummer
What’s the last thing a drummer says before he gets fired from the band? ‘Hey guys, check out this song I’ve written.’ An old and terrible joke, but drummers who want to write music face the simple obstacle that their instrument doesn’t readily lend itself to composition. That’s why Phil Collins plays piano, and Charlie Benante and Dave Grohl play guitar. Terry Bozzio’s Composer Series is four CDs and one Blu-ray that showcase very different sides of his creative process.
