A Great Bass Drummer

I’ve been thinking a lot about the current phenomenon of what is now called the “mid section”. More later.

In the meantime, here’s a photograph that includes one of the greats in “mid sections”: Luke Allen. This taken at Maxville games in August 1987.

  1. Just thinking , what a mass of talent in that one picture.

  2. Luke set a standard that I personally feel has never been matched. Pure musicality. It’s evident even from the ’87 footage. His one performance that gets me every time though is what he did in the medley at the ’88 Worlds. Brilliant! The cassette recording I had is long since worn out. The impression remains vivid.
