The legendary (and great friend) Derek Oliver (who will reissue "Everybody's Crazy" on Rock Candy in 2008) just got in touch with me regarding this matter and here's what he wrote me:

"Yes it was definitely Burgi...they forgot to credit him on the original release which is why everyone assumed it was programmed drums....Louis Levin Bolton's then manager confirmed this to me." (Derek Oliver)

That's it. I am sure that Neil Kernon's classic signature production made it sound like a drum machine or heavily programmed. Infact you listen to other "classic" records produced by Kernon (Streets, Aviator, Valentine, Shy, Autograph, Kansas) you'll hear those big sounding drums (maybe not SO big sounding...), with an almost mechanical feel.

The proof could also be that the if you listen to the only track from "Everybody's Crazy" which 110% has a drum machine since it's also credited like this ("Desperate Heart" - not produced by Kernon but by Randy Goodrum) you will hear how different is the (tiny) and fake drum sound on this comparing to the bombastic other ones.

So Burgi was the (uncredited) drummer on the record
Period

Cheers
