Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

The internet was the invention I was waiting for my whole life until it arrived. I was always seeking information about things, usually things nobody else cared about. My interests have always been...

Re: Who inspires you the most?

Tony Williams.

That would have been my answer many times over the past 30 years, but I particularly have been seeking out the less-familiar recordings featuring Tony over the past few months and...

Re: Crap rehearsal = great gig?

That's my take also. The shows we play after a bad rehearsal do seem to be especially good.

Re: How tense are you when you play?

I played a gig last night and this question floated through my mind. The answer is that it depends. It depends on how well I know the music, how well I know the musicians, the gear I'm playing, how...

Re: What Drum Moments Give You the Chills

Hockeylifer, I bought that VHS tape with Weckl, Colaiuta and Gadd when it came out in 1989 or 1990 and I got chills from the same thing.

Here are a few others:

Elvin Jones on Softly, As In A...

Re: Bad gig, good learning experience.

Sitting behind the drums, it's hard to know what the audience hears. We're the one instrumentalist who can't walk out front and hear the band from the audience perspective.

We had a rehearsal in...

Re: Snare sound with Hot Rods?

Rimshots. They are essential.

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

I spend 1–2 hours on the pad, 7 days-a-week. I work out of Stick Control, practice snare solos and push my speed and endurance limits with rudiments.

My practice on the set is limited because I...

Re: Matched Grip vs. Traditional Grip: Pro's and Con's?

Yes. And at least in the U.S., the polarized camps (especially in politics) are more interested in asserting loudly than listening, being open to other viewpoints and having real conversation. Which...

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

My last post on here seems to have disappeared.

Anyway, the Sony headphones are on the head-fi.org list, but they are listed on the Budget category (under $75) for some reason.

Re: Your approach to supporting a solo.

Very nice playing, Andy. I love seeing you on the four-piece, by the way!

I understand exactly what you mean, and I don't have a single approach, I let the moment dictate what I do.

Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

Playing with a band is a different skill set than developing chops. You wonder why some amazing technicians are still playing in their basement. Then you see something like this, and you understand.

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

Yes, they are. They're under the Budget ($0–$75) category, though. Not sure if they can really be had that cheap.

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

The only serious place to get headphone reviews by price range is head-fi.org. I used their buyer's guide to choose my cans and haven't regretted my decision. Check it out.

Re: How to stop playing slightly ahead of the beat?

I would start by saying that playing ahead of the beat is no more right or wrong than playing behind or on the beat. A whole set of factors about the music—such as tempo, style and how the other...

Terrific interview. You asked really good questions and it made for a much more interesting conversation. Well done!

Re: DCI 2015

I dunno, Bo. There's a whole faction of corps drummers who view the 70s and 80s as the golden era of drum corps, before Kevlar and the change in approach to scoring difficulty. I have no horse in...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

I'm talking about working with sound guys (and gals) in close-miking situations. There will be clashes.

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Yeah, it's mostly drum forum bull****. The reality is that if you walk into rock or pop music sessions and gigs with sound engineers with a wide-open, ringy bass drum, you'll have lots of...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

I have my own sound. And sometimes, I don't especially like it. I usually do, but there are occasions where I wish I had another sound. But it's mine, for better or worse.

Re: John Von Ohlen: Some Best Moments in Drumming Have Been the Simplest

For some reason, I distinctly remember the 1985 interview with Von Ohlen. It's an example of a story that really drove me to explore music I might otherwise not have bothered with. MD was one of the...

I remember learning that pattern for the first time and feeling a great sense of accomplishment. It always gave me goosebumps when he played it.

Re: Drummer- the only musician that can't mess up?

I think a sour note coming from a singer is as obvious as any mistake a drummer makes.

One area where drummers are particularly screwed is on stops. If a drummer misses a stop, everybody in the...

Ferrone is one of my favorites. Talk about a groove.
