Chester Thompson – Pearl Drums promotional photo – 1985
This is a promotional photo of Chester Thompson, taken early in 1985.
Note: The rack in the image is to support the drums and cymbal stands, thus removing the need for so many stands on the drum riser.
Chester didn’t use one on the Genesis 1983/84 Mama tour, but by the time of the Phil Collins No Jacket Required tour of 1985, Chester had this drum rack.
(Many thanks to Mark Kenyon for this promo photo)
