Tommy Lee Discusses Roller Coaster Drumkit Gimmick
Lee's kit is welded to a bogey on a circular rail which stands perpendicular to the stage. During the show he invites a member of the audience to join him as he plays a drum solo while the bogey rolls up and over – meaning he's playing against gravity for most of the stunt.
"Everything to do with this is absolutely wrong. Playing upside down is insane – it's two or three times more difficult than normal." He tells MusicRadar. "Your feet want to come off the pedals, your arm want to drop. All of your body is fighting gravity. The only time it's comfortable is when you're in the ground position. The rest of the time everything's out of control." more on this story
