The Drum's The Thing

Genuine, absolutely one-click-only random Wikipedia page of the day: "Modern Drummer" magazine. Which is all the excuse we need to belatedly mark the passing of Klaus Dinger, which was announced at a time when we were under the malign influence of lurgi, and we somehow failed to get back to him.

Klaus Dinger, as you know, was the drummer who, with "Hallo Gallo", by Neu!, invented the thing known as "motorik". Listen to "Hallo Gallo". You have lost count of how many times you have heard that rhythm. But you heard it there first. Respect.
