The Incredible Flying Drummer

Back around 1974-75, when I was a lad in my mid teens, I saw Dutch rockmeisters Golden Earring perform live in Detroit's Cobo Hall in what I remember was an opening slot for Mountain. At the climax of his solo on "Radar Love", drummer Cesar Zuiderwijk's drum throne seemed to explode and he did a flying leap over his double bass drum kit and landed on his feet at the front of the stage. Now, THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!!!!
The original video I found on YouTube had the exploding stool ;-) This video is from Top Of the Pops and has the pyro-free leap. Wait for it...
