Re: Where to demo drums in Dallas

All of the books mentioned above are truly excellent. However, I'd like to throw one more into the mix. John Wooton's "Dr. Throwdown's Rudimental Remedies". I really like the way that it's...

Re: What sport disciplines help you become better on drums?

While not a book about drumming, "Rhythms of the Game" by Bernie Williams is a TERRIFIC book that deals with the parallels between sports and music performance. Bernie was a fine baseball player...

Re: Hit like a girl

Agree 100%...

They must think Cindy Blackman (Santana) has no skills. She's a monster regardless of gender!!
