Brad Carlson is celebrating his 68th birthday today. Brad in his own way is responsible for how live music is played today by many.
You will know Brad better as Cheap Trick’s original drummer Bun E. Carlos. Back in the early 70’s when Trick was just starting, they took a little different approach to how they played their sets. In those days bands would play a song, then tune, talk, play some misc. chords etc. Cheap Trick started the style of as one song was just finishing, Bun would start the beat of the next song. No talking, no misc chords by Nielsen etc. Bun E. leading the way.
Having seen CT in their very early day in the Wis/ILL clubs, we were so glad that Brad played with them at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction last year.
With Brad, very possibily the best American Rock and Roll band ever. You may disagree with us, but would CT live in your top five?
Happy Birthday Bun E.!!!!!
