Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

When I was a kid I used to save up for each thing I wanted, just stashing away cash as I could.

After getting a decent job I went a different route. Instead of saving what's left over, I save all...

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

Gervais covers pretty much everything and lots of people redo their basements. That is an ideal location but typically presents one problem: low ceilings. If you wind up building new, get the...

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

Oh, I think I'm right. And the new somewhat sad expression on your avatar proves it!

Juilliard grads in rock? How about Ruth Underwood?

As far as Eastman is concerned, he may not be a...

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

So as long as I can pay the tuition I should be able to get into Juilliard? Cool! Now I know what I'm going to do when I retire!

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

The fact that you're on the end and have no one above or beneath you is a plus. On the downside, anything that will be effective probably won't be allowed as you're not the owner. You would literally...

Re: Drumming Injury Advice needed!

Obviously your condition is caused by a brain tumor. You will need to get a brainectomy.

This happened to me a couple years ago and after the brainectomy my internet forum comments vastly...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Well mine is just beginning. A bit off topic but whenever I see someone running, walking or riding in the streets while wearing earbuds I just want to run over and give them a good slap. I used to be...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Definitely. I think for many people music is merely the sonic wallpaper of their lives.

Back in college (before there were buggy whips), the most prized possession of many students was their...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

I took a quick look on Google Earth. Looks like lots of odd shaped parcels set up for farming with hedgerows between.

Does look a little like some parts of upstate NY. I think I'd feel at home.

Re: Drumming and writing music.

Playing devil's advocate for a sec, what precisely does this mean? How does music "add up"?

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

You bring up an interesting point, namely that sales of their earlier albums increased. That's certainly not because it changed, right? It's simply because they got airplay from their current...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Nice pics of the countryside. We really should get over to visit your fine country one of these days.

Totally agree about analog desks for such a situation. Maybe it's just decades of familiarity...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Zappa was declared to have "no commercial potential" by a music marketing exec in the 1960s yet he produced over 60 albums on his own. I'd also lay odds that virtually every forum member who was...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

In some respects, little has changed. Zappa made the identical argument in the mid 60s. The difference now is that there are no record sales (comparatively) for someone who might go the independent...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

I don't think it's political, I think it's about capital. People forget that things like R&RHoF are not about art, they're about entertainment, and ultimately, the ability to make money.

Let's...

Re: Recurring dream - drum related

Would a drum related dream be called a druam? And if I was breathing loudly during it, would my wife tell me to stop snaring? Of course, I don't think I have to mention the symbalism of the druams,...

Re: bass drum depth

I always laugh at people who say "more is better". As I tell my students, no one says "Gee, I wish I had more cancer."

But, if you like the way it sounds, it doesn't matter if the kick is 12" deep...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hello Mr. Harrison,

I understand that your first progressive rock gig was with Renaissance in the the early 1980s and I believe also your first US tour(?).

Do you have any good memories of that...

Re: New snare, one of a kind look

Seeing that makes me sad because it reminds me of looking down into an empty box of chocolates.

Re: Do you think it's time for your favorite drummer to retire?

I too was sad to see Bruford retire but after reading his autobio I can at least understand his decision.

Enough with the drummers, what about bass players? Why is it that many of my favorite...

Re: Elvin Jones Interview from 1968

The first thing that strikes me about this is the way the writer paints the scene at the beginning. And that scene is not particularly pretty. Here's one of the world's top drummers and he's living...

Re: Good exercises for developing mobility around the set?

I have found this to be invaluable. It lets you do so much more. I seem to recall that Morgenstein's book has reversing patterns.

Re: Mic Cables...

Neutrik makes some nice stuff but they also make some not-so-good stuff. Gotta be careful there. The same is true for other manufacturers. I came across some not so great Switchcraft 1/4" plugs a few...
