In the video for Everybody Let’s Me Down, that you can download from Cityslang, J plays drums at the end…
I’ve seen pics of J drumming with Love As Laughter, I’ll try to find the pics :aliensmile:
found it, OSX has a great site with tons of J pics, the J pic on drums is pic 1_10A, it’s labelled as J on drums as well so just scroll down & you’ll find it…

I think the clear ludwig set may have been ruined. Supposedly it was black sabbaths or something at one time. I know George uses a mod orange vistilite kit.June 3, 2003 at 1:31 pm #93886
In this current interview, J talks about playing the drums himself while recording an album:Quote:The one criticism that consistently came up about Dinosaur Jr was that, as here, it was little more than a front for Mascis’ solo work. Not only did he write everything but he liked to play as many instruments as possible. In particular, drums – tricky when you have a fully paid-up drummer in your band.
"I like to play the drums myself because I think it’s an important part of the sound. I have worked with drummers and they play something and I try to sing on top of it, but it doesn’t feel right. The guy’s playing it as right as he can, but it’s not the right feeling. I hate doing the same thing over and over again, so I would rather just play them myself and get it down first time.
"I wouldn’t mind people playing other instruments, but not the drums…"
there’s a cool still on FreeSoFree.net of J playing drums in the "Everybody lets me down" video (you can also download the video there in good quality)
