Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Musos never tell me things like that after gigs. Occasionally when I've posted videos online people have suggested that I could work on my left wrist. It's a fair point - my left wrist has all the...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Non-Phillipe :) ... last night I was looking at a Zappa Plays Zappa live video and thought back to my comment to you and wished I said "unless you are operating at elite levels". Great artists are...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

When I was in London I had the impression that Andy was bionic - powered by spicy food and beer :)

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Excellent :) Towards the end she was singing almost exactly like I do!

Break a leg Andy!

Re: Keith Moon

Thanks, KamaK! Really enjoying that link. That and the Leeds concert are the bomb.

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

This hits the nail on the head for me, Mike. The reasons why we play vary from individual to individual - different ambitions and different feelings about what's the most enjoyable approach over the...

Re: Your midweek smile :)

You could fit two of him in that bass drum! The little uns these days are amazing. Give it twenty years and you'll have babies playing Vinnie licks before they're toilet trained!

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Philippe (? sorry, bad memory :), I agree with a lot of advice given here about:

1. Taking a break to freshen up
2. Finding someone to jam with / find a band etc.

It seems to me that, like me,...

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Good to see you, old bean!

Have to take your word on that one - sounded pretty jazzy to me but I'm pretty big on repetitive figures :)

Re: hi hat dis-assembly

Hi hat stands are a pain in the arse. You either have this inconvenient long thing and fiddly breakdown and set up.

I have not broken down a hat stand since 1975 but I'm no example for anyone :)

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Hi stranger - I was thinking Tony Williams too :) Not being so versed in jazz, I figured it was the low tuned toms.

He is more at home in this set than the last time I heard him play straight...

Re: EGO's

That is actually a big ego reacting to being incapable of feeding itself with big achievements, hence the control freak angle (a sign of extreme insecurity). I played with a bassist who was like...

Re: Name that rhythm

Didn't know it was called that - perfect name for it.

Former Genesis drummer, John Mayhew, was criticised at the time for his flat tyre shuffle in The Knife, which was thought to be clumsy. I...

Thanks guys. I was shocked and saddened by his response too, and felt really guilty afterwards in an "eggshell skull" kind of way.B oth Ken and Lutz were real assets to the forum, both generous...

Re: Name that rhythm

I'd still call it a money beat, just that he's playing linearly with his hands.

Re: Playing Fast?

Pocket is right. Forget speed when playing music and focus on making the music flow and feel right.

Sometimes you need speed to do that but what you describe sounds like the fast fills you are...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Great post, Caz, and good to have such a relevant anecdote. It makes sense that those at the top of their field have bigger fish to fry than superficial distractions.

Re: Not denting heads

I think it's largely the angle of the dangle. If you hit down into the drum, especially with mounted toms not tiled back much, then it's easy to leave dents in the head.

Sticks with small, round...

Re: Recording technique

I've laid drums down first with a drum machine and a scratch track. I personally don't like it because I enjoy melding with the band.

You don't have much choice if you're home recording yourself,...
