After my last entry about my first band and our home-made drum kit, our French correspondent M. Jacky Lurton has sent me a couple of pics of his first drum kit. I hope the pics will show you something of the ingenuity of this. In them, (at a guess they were taken in about 1970/71) young Jacky is pictured playing a mixture of oil drums and other recycled material rather superior to the 1967 model that my brother and I constructed for our own purposes.
This demonstrates how youthful ingenuity driven by the desire to play pop music can even overcome poverty. I show you these pics because it illustrates the point so beautifully. The French are a people we should be at war with, precisely upon these grounds.
Ecoutez!! La grande batterie de Monsieur Lurton!!
