Re: Playing the drumset without sticks..

The Yes tour stop here in 1972 on the Fragile tour found the group Sweathog opening. "Frosty" Smith's drum solo was all done with his hands and a nice job at that. We wondered at the time what Bill...

Re: Why are some musicians so difficult to talk to?

I'm with Bermuda on this one. There is a whole continuum of personality types represented in the pro-level musicians I have met.
