Danny Young - We Will Rock You

This is Danny Young's set up from the first national tour of Queen's We Will Rock You at the Andrew Jackson Hall in Nashville, Tennessee. The tour is currently sitting for six weeks in Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theatre.


“After I got the call for the tour, I knew I was going to need a BIG kit, so I called up my friends over at TreeHouse Drums. After researching Roger Taylor's kits, they put together a killer set of drums for the tour.

  • 18" x 24" Bass Drum
  • 9" x 10" Mounted Tom
  • 10" x 12" Mounted Tom
  • 11" x 13" Mounted Tom
  • 16" x 16" Floor Tom
  • 16" x 18" Floor Tom
  • 7" x 14" Snare Drum

These big sizes help to mimic Roger Taylor's signature sound he created with Queen both on their albums and live. I also sought to match Roger's unique sound by using larger cymbals, including Soultone's 15" Custom Hi Hats, 17", 19" and 20" Gospel Crashes, a 22" prototype Custom Ride and a 20" Extreme China.

Here is a link to the Hammer to Fall to check out the sound of these MASSIVE drums!”

Danny is a proud endorser of TreeHouse Drums, Soultone Cymbals, Vic Firth Sticks and Humes & Berg Cases.
