Drum sound on Destroyer

Hi Jay,

Kiss are one of the bands that eventually through a long path got me into engineering, and Destroyer still stands in my mind as one of the best sounding records of all time.

I've always loved the drum sound, and tried many times to get the depth and size myself, but never can. If you can recall, could you elaborate the engineering process for the drums on Destroyer? XY Overheads 10FT above the kit? Room Mics? etc..

Thanks very much for doing this, and for engineering one of the greatest rock records!!!
