Any Cheap Trick details? Stories?

I'm a huge fan of Cheap Trick, especially their first 4 or 5 albums...

Is there any specifics you can share about Bun E.'s tom sound that features so prominently on songs like ELO Kiddies, and C'mon C'mon, etc....

And the 'clanky' Rickenbacker bass sound on those early records -- I'm guessing it's a mic'd amp? Any distortion?

Basically I'm all ears for any Cheap Trick info you care to share. But drums n' bass are the sounds I especially love from those early tracks.
