Re: Brain fart

One night on a gig with a blues and classic trio that I played in, the bandleader called out BB Kings "The Thrill is Gone." Can't even recall how many times we'd played it even at that point. I'm...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

For quite a while Dennis Chambers went with yellow on his Pearl kit. He'd been on a gorgeous silver sparkle for a while - does he still go with the yellow on occasion?

Re: Big Band drum thread.

Back in high school ("76-79) I had the drum chair in our jazz band sophomore to senior year. With a few exceptions of showcasing the rhythm section, we were a big band. Basie arrangements, etc. ...

Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

Correct my history if I got anything wrong. I've followed Tama since the late 70s as they were the first to offer a viable alternative to the big four.



I think your history is correct, Bo. At...

Re: The official, "Your services are no longer required" thread

Bo, sorry to hear what happened. No one wants a decision to end something made for them. I think that in one area you're taking this too personal. You weren't fired from your drumming gig. Whether we...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

If there were a Hall of Fame for inane comments, that one earns itself a prominent place.

Re: The "Jimi Hendrix of drums"

As everyone has an opinion, so do I. The two drummers who come to my mind when answering this question are Tony Williams and Steve Gadd. IMO, from their time forward they've influenced the way at...

Re: Joe Morello on Buddy Rich Part 3

I guess more would tune in to watch a "drum battle" than a drum duet.

Re: Joe Morello on Buddy Rich Part 3

I was fortunate to see Buddy Rich and his band a few times in person.

Folks tend to talk about the big, busy stuff that Buddy played, whether in praise or criticizing. But the thing is, if you'd...

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

Over the years I've read numerous threads praising Matt's DVD, yet I've never purchased a copy. :(

Recently, all of the reviews for JoJo's new DVD are very positive. You all can see the question...

Re: Yahoo.com 10 legendary rock drummers..

I can't stand lists such as these, "ranking" musicians as if they're prizefighters or something.

And yet I always take the bait and read them. Kind of like opening the milk carton past the...

Re: The power of nostalgia

Nostalgia is that wonderful part of our mind that emphasizes the fond parts of memories past.

Regarding drums, for me it's Rogers. In my early drumming years as I was banging away on the really...

Re: playing less and keeping time

Yeah, that too. Ever notice that the singer is usually the first one to notice if the tempo is changing?

Re: Rack Tom as floor Tom

After seeing the tom sizes in your picture, I'd stay with the one up, two down set up, but that's just my preference /comfort.

Re: Rack Tom as floor Tom

When I use all three of my toms (I'm currently playing my kit as a four piece ) I set it up the way you describe. I place the two mounted toms to the left of the bass drum. I like it a lot.
