"It is a relatively simple concept. When I first thought of this the idea seemed too cool not to try. You get a John Bonham replica drum kit (courtesy of Natal Drums,) complete with Paiste gong and timpani, up front, center stage, and have each drummer perform their favorite Led Zeppelin song with house band The Moby Dicks. It's a unique night, seeing how all of these great drummers approach the same drum set and make it their own. (...) There is structure, and within the structure there is freedom: freedom, groove, and volume!"
