Bob Lanning V's Ronnie Tutt
This subject has been talked about, but a long time ago.........so just wanted to bring it up again as we have lots of new members (y)
Some of you might not be aware but Elvis used Bob Lanning on drums in the early part of the 1970 when Ronnie was unavailable.
So the simple question is who's style do you prefer?
It might be a little more difficult that you expect to answer when you listen to some of the tracks that Bob was on! One of my favourite versions of "I Got A Woman" has Bob on the drums!
The perfect way to show the difference is to play the two small attachments below which are both covering the same song "Proud Mary" the 1970 snippet is Bob Lanning the second clip from 1972 is Ronnie Tutt.
For me Bob seems to take the minimalistic approach and keeps it clear and crisp where as Ronnie gives it the fuller sound. The best way I can describe it I suppose is that Bob sounds mono and Ron sounds stereo :blush:
Anyway, what do you think?
