Weird view. I can name the tune he was playing:


It looks as if there is a diamond plate that is somehow connected to the cymbal stand, but it's hard to imagine that stand could hold that tom without the whole thing being otherwise propped-up by the snare drum.

It actually looks like he could be holding the tom, looking at the clip-mount on the bass drum, and the diamond plate on the tom looks to have a hole in it, with the wrap showing through. Photo snapped immediately following catastrophic hardware failure? Maybe a stretch, but OTOH I do not see any suspension for that tom!
