Never heard that either. The Can't Live Without video has footage from the studio when they recorded the song. Looks like Guy is playing "real" drums to me.

Sorry folks, those were Electric drums, not a drum machine. Guy played the parts on his Electric drums (forgot brand) with his live cymbals. Though looking at the video of Can't Live Without, he is playing his acoustic set. My best pal happen to be in the video, big tall guy with mustache, wearing a red T-shirt. I did see Guy on the 3.V tour, playing the electric drums. He played them for awhile, before switching back. I guess when you work part time at a local drum shop, you get to try stuff and expirement. I got to stop by and say hello to him. Another drummer, that works in my office is there just about every weekend, and see's Guy on occasion. Giving lessons to the future drummers of the world. I actually thought about signing up myself, just to get some experience.

It DOES sound like one in "Losing You're Heart"

As everyone knows, the electric drums are tunable to various sounds. My pal had a set of Simmons. He could program each "Trigger" with a seperate sound. I'm sure Guy was changing the sound around, to give a little more punch on certain tracks. My friend would record the famous belch and fart noises to add some humor during soundchecks, at the local gigs. I use to be his roadie, and help set up his mountain of drums. He had this huge Tama set, all blue green, concert toms, double bass, with octobanes, chimes, gong. Christ, all he was missing was the kitchen sink. Me and his band mates were going to bring one to the shows, and place it behind him. He actually built a steel drum. It was a bitch to tune he said. It was a cross of Neil Peart and Stewart Copeland.

my fave "percussion" that Guy uses is the Chinese Symbols especially during the solos when his hands are crossing at 100mph!! Not many drummers like those cymbals unfortunately....

Not too many artist still use those. I know that Neil used them for "Mystic Rythms". I think the Zombies did with "Time Of The Season".

no LOL damn I went there expecting to see breasts and I saw a rock band. Just kidding! I think they had a great band!

that scared me. I didn't think that guy would let the band do that to him. Electric drums are very good these days; they can be dynamic/not just one volume. Plus, you don't have to fool with mics, and as much compression when recording. I love that big snare, it rocks. don't scare me like that again. Real cymbals are better though, I'm glad he used them. Do you think neil peart would let rush record a drum machine? nah.

IM TELLING YOU ITS PROGRAMED BY RANDY .

What was programmed by Randy, a click track probably. I doubt that they would not let Guy put tracks to a Zebra song. He was playing electric drums in 86 & 87. I'm not a rocket scientist, but if Randy did the drum parts for the 3.V album, he must have told Guy that he had to trade his acoustic set in and get an electric one, and act like he is milli vinilli. Because I've seen them perform just about every tune from 3.V. I think I seen them like 6 or 7 times, in that 2 year span, and he was playing electric drums. If you have information that we don't, please inform us, and we can go to the horse's mouth.

I think the drums on No Tellin' Lies are really overkill. That big way to fat snare really kills the tunes (especailly Wait Until....).
I have old demos of that tune that kick butt because you can actually hear everything over the snare.:)
