the video is One Vision but it's most likely just a case of goofing off rather than John actually being a drummer. I mean, I can play the drums - but i can't play the drums.

Hmm....there's certainly alot missing without the assist of non-verbal clues. :)

As a bassist, and needing to have a good sense of keeping time, John in all likelyhood is a good drummer, as compared to you or me. Just as Roger is probably a good guitarist, compared to the rest of us schlepps....

John said that he can keep a simple beat, that's about it.

That's right. He answered this question for the QFC magazine in the end of 90s.

However, I recently saw a WWRY Australia first night goody bag for sale with a pair of sticks used by Roger at the after party, and they were Zildjian John Deacon Signatures. Random or what? I need to e-mail Zildjian and see if they've ever been commercially available, and if so, get some for my mate who, like me, worships the radiant deity that is JRD!
