‘Rattle and Drum’ is the story of drummer Scott Hunter’s musical adventures, from early days in his garden shed playing along to Deep Purple and Zeppelin albums to recording with internationally successful British rock band, Jethro Tull. It’s been a chequered journey of ups, downs, and somewhere-in-betweens, but Scott’s down to earth sense of humour and instinct for self preservation during his (many) musical times of adversity make for an entertaining, fascinating and occasionally laugh-out-loud account of a life on the edge of rock ‘n’ roll.

As promised in the book, here is the link to the Reading Festival ’82 SH drum solo, with a little flavour of ‘Danny Boy’ thrown in 🙂
