Re: DW, the Scientology of drum companies?

Totally agree with the OP, it is the Scientology of companies, now we need a Jason Beghe of the drumming community to blow the lid of this as in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHb0BZyF5Ok

Re: Mapex Mars vs Armory - worth the higher price?

I just bought a 6pc Mars for a great price. I simply can't believe how great these drums are for $599. The SonicClear is a total advantage. I'm actually keeping the stock heads. This may end up being...

Re: New find! 80's Wailin Smash video = ultimate epicness :)

Fair enough I'm backing off as you are right and bring up a good point - nothing wrong with rebellion and I certainly celebrate it and admire everyone who does it, hell I shouldn't be playing and...

Watched the video from the initial post of this thread and accidentally saw this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSoZUzMJ7DY (I wanted to wash my eyes and ears out with Sriracha Sauce)

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I'm about to sell my Tama Starclassic Performer Birch/Bubinga, figured I'd start here first, then CL.

Anyway, they were bought NEW in January this year and used only twice: Once for a gig where...

Re: Dave Lombardo: Metal's Greatest Drummer?

Yup, it's documented. I was gonna add that earlier on, and I'm sorry but Dave can't do a lot of what Gene does. Come to think of it, not many people can, he's just unreal...

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Damn you are fortunate. I'm kicking myself today because I never got to see them live back then. I'll look for footage on the net. What band did you play with back then?

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Dude - Candiria rules! I remember hearing them on WSOU back in the day, and I was floored! I was like: this is the best music I've ever heard!

Fast forward to today, the stuff I like really is...

Re: Blake Richardson + Tomas Haake + Elliot Hoffman

I would suggest Jay Postones from TesseracT. He's quite unlike any prog metal drummer I've heard. Anup Sastry from Skyharbor and Intervals is another monster.

Re: Dave Lombardo: Metal's Greatest Drummer?

No disrespect to Dave or anyone, but, I'm sorry, the answer is no.

He's very good at what he does for Slayer. I'll leave it at that, on a positive note :)

Re: Sonor essential or Mapex Armory

The Mars is soooooo good that I almost gave up my Starclassic B/B's for them. The price point is unreal considering what you are getting.

You bring up a good point about not slamming very good drummers who programmed their parts - Tomas Haake, super-amazing, brilliant drummer from Meshuggah (one of the most important metal bands of our...

Re: Anybody rockin 13-16-20?

I've been toying with the idea of getting a custom kit as 13x13, 16x16 and 20x20, where the 13 tom would be birch and the 16 and 20 would be maple. pair this up with my Musashi snare and it would be...

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

So glad I saw this thread.

I have a 1949 Ludwig WMP 15 x 8 snare that I'm restoring (waiting on my daughter's paint-job), and I was thinking about tunings while simultaneously trying to...

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

Just saw it last night, glad I didn't have to pay for it.

Boring crappy movie until Simmons starts in on him. I laughed out loud the whole time! Really, this would be the worst movie ever without...

Me too! never had a problem and I always used the same mantra as you, basically treat others how you want to be treated.

The best way I've won over sound guys was by coming early and tuning the...

Re: Twisted Sister Drummer dies

I met him at club in Staten Island in the 80's - Billy O's. He got up on stage with the the band playing that night for a song or two - he tore it up! Great drummer and nice guy. RIP A.J. - he was...

Re: WERE DO I START??? *JAZZ DRUMMING*

This is the best advice I've read. period.

I've been down this road - the "hip infection" will usually go away if your roots and "musical" intentions are elsewhere.

Nowadays, the thought...

Re: Peart - would you hang out with him?

No, not at all, quite the opposite. I've read all his books and seen almost all of his interviews.

In his travels, he was simply a human being on a destination, a regular guy. I think you could...

For those who may or may not have read his books and seen the interviews - would you hang out with him if you had the chance and why, or would you decline?

Re: Neil Peart

Nah, that's a bit too general of a statement. You can criticize who you want, why not? It's your right.

But as I made a parallel story specific to what we do: if you're a drummer bashing another...
