    Only one I know of is Henker.


    (quad bass at 1:40)

    I know there were a couple approaches to this with heel-toe and down/up pedals. Still waiting for a down/up heel/toe hexabass-pedal. :lol:

    There have to be more bands out there who have done this.

    Dream Theater used to for a while. Now it's just back to two bass drums.

    Should've known about Terry Bozzio!
    That second video seemed pretty gratuitous. Not to rag on another musician, but what was the point in that demonstration? Three bass drums, to play <<bum, ba-bap, bum, bum bap>> x 100, a tight, but completely context-less cymbal choking demonstration, then 3 1/2 minutes in, a drum solo with no footwork whatsoever (a pet peeve of mine).
    I had never heard of Thomas Lang, but that was amazing!

    Yeah I like Thomas, his 4-limb independence is great. Makes me want to learn drums. Funny guy too, IMO.
