“All the live instruments were recorded onto Sadie’s HD64 [pictured above]. A lot of people are surprised I use this but it really works for me and is flawless on heavy live sessions.
“The live kit starts in the theme with a four-on-the-floor kick at 131BPM; then eight bars later building a little tension with a syncopated beat with tom overdubs; and then finally going into a straight rock beat for the end of the theme.
“I used my usual set of drum mics, including the legendary MD441 on the snare and two mics on the kick - an Audix Kick mic inside the bass drum pointing slightly up towards the beater and then about two feet away from the bass drum the fantastic AKG 414 to pick up a bit of the room. Then, for overheads I used the Earthworks SR25 (matched pair) which were amazing. My Drummer Brian [Delaney, of New York Dolls fame] recommended those.
