Sean Kinney's snare sounds: Roland R8 samples??

Just joined an AIC tribute band and was wondering if anyone has figured out Sean's snare sounds? Some of the early recordings sound just like snare patches from Roland's R8 model drum machine, which...

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

Here's my 2-cent Buddy story: I had seen Buddy in various Modern Drummer articles and ads, also the classic Ludwig posters at all the music stores when I first started playing. I knew he was an icon...

Re: Bill Bruford

Cool... I love the title track "red". What an original blues tune, huh? I read a story how he used a severely broken cymbal he found laying around for the effects on "one more red nightmare".

Re: Ian Paice

I saw Deep Purple with ELP and Dream Theater in the late nineties. I have been a die-hard DT fan since 1990 but I must say Deep Purple stole the show that night. Ian kicks @ss. I even got to meet...

Re: Randy Castillo

I thought Randy's playing was very smooth. He was a great entertainer in my book. You don't get hired to play for Ozzy if you have nothing to offer the band. Let's be real.

Re: Bill Bruford

He's one of my all time fav's. I saw King Crimson once and as luck would have it Bill didn't play on that tour. If fact I don't think he's been with them in years, has he? Pardon me for my ignorance.

Re: Phil Ehart

Phil is definitely one of my favorites. What could you not like about his drumming on Magnum Opus or Song for America??

Re: Mike Mangini

Awesome! I've never attended a drum clinic. I first heard about him from a guy I met at the 2005 Rush Convention in Toronto, Ont. He said Mike drummed for an incredible rush tribute and I should...

Re: Neil Peart

He is my favorite drummer of all time, followed by MP. When I first started in playing drums My Sharona was big on the radio and I really liked the drums on it, so I would bang my Remo practice pad...

Re: Mike Portnoy

I'm a newby here. I see almost as much MP bashing here as I do on the rush forum! lmao
