On John’s second studio album with Exodus, the 11-minute track Architect Of Pain saw John do “the Clive Burr thing”, overdubbing chimes and gongs on top of his drum part.
John Tempesta says:
“Force Of Habit was recorded in England at Battery Studios. Chris Tsangarides did that record. He did Thunder And Lightning for Thin Lizzy and Painkiller for Judas Priest.”
“I broke my heel – it was New Year’s Eve, I just had to do my David Lee Roth kick, I landed on my heel, I woke up the next day and I couldn’t walk. My first time meeting the producer, I came right from the hospital to the studio on crutches: ‘Here’s the drummer!’”
“Luckily I play heel-up so it didn’t bother me. I did overdubs, I had chimes and gongs. It was cool.”
