Re: Nick Hopkins drums

Have dealt with Nick on a restoration job for a vintage Premier set I own. Couldn't go ahead with it as we suddenly got engaged during that time.

Really nice chap, hope to give him my business...

Re: Playing at Ronnie Scott's tomorrow

Thanks for checking it out, not sure I'd agree with the great playing compliment but I appreciate your kind words

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Not after every song, that would get boring very fast (although I have found it accidentally happening at some gigs in the past, without really registering it at the time!!)

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

Good guesses (I didn't make it hard enough)

Funny enough I checked out their web page in recent days off the back of this post and they are now working with promoters we have just done a show with...

Re: Playing at Ronnie Scott's tomorrow

Now booked for the forth time in under a year!! Becoming a regular, so much so I might ask for the framed photo of Buddy Rich they have there......

Sorry, had to share. Very excited again.

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

Regular to the London circuit so I come across my fair share of venues/promoters who I wouldn't want to see again in a hurry.

There's only one venue I wouldn't play again and that's due to playing...

Re: The matching snare

But what about if the snare that came with the kit isn't the 'voice' that you're looking for? As it's been mentioned the snare is the most personal drum on the entire kit.

What if you like maple...

Re: The matching snare

I don't actually like the look of matching snares for some reason.

If I'm watching a drummer on tv I like trying to figure out what snare they are playing, if a different colour to the kit.

I...

Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

No, never. As far as I know anyway....

Play with a high profile singer and I know cats would at least try and get in on the band for the profile of playing with her. It's all part of the...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I don't mind them, provided they are used correctly. Some drummers over use them at times, but I like to hear them occasionally, rather than frequently

I've owned a 8" splash for 17years or so but...

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

Meet her at the London Drum Show that day we all met and briefly chatted in a lift.

I've been a fan ever since I first bought Live Wood by Paul Weller back in '97 I think. Had to contain the...

I had some (brief) contact with Alan last year, the reason why it was brief I will explain.

Re: London Drum Show - they listened!

Good stuff, glad they listened to feedback. It was very intense.

You know you have an issue when drummers complain about the noise!!

Will look forward to it again.
