Re: My Band Frustrations

No biggie. It sounds like you've got time to join another band. No need to quit this first one though. It's always wise to be involved with a couple of situations. Good luck.

Agreed! Great...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I want to see it but can't find it in theaters around where I live, so I'll have to rent it from Redbox or Netflix when it comes out. From what I've seen in the trailers and reading here, it seems...

Re: DW aquires Gretsch and Latin Percussion...

If someone wanted to freely give me a DW kit, I don't believe I'd turn away their blessing of gift. Smile. I'd trade it for a Gretsch Broadkaster. Grin.

Re: Is it wrong to ask...

Is Sam's stuff any good? Would you prefer to be up there on stage with him than rehearsing with the band you're in? If Sam were to "get with it and put his own together", would you do it?

Another *&^%$# Bar Owner

Why are bar owners and managers such jerks to work with? I know of 2 independent booking agents here in town that have quit the business because they are so frustrated and tired of the BS.

Re: No love for 20" bassdrums?
