Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

Thank you for the link. Such an amazing drummer and person, we lost him far too soon.

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Chad Smith really impressed me with Achilles Last Stand also. I knew he was a solid drummer, though not a Chili Peppers fan, but he really brought the power in that performance.

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Totally agree. Drummers, on this forum, often suggest AC/DC songs as easy to play. True, Rudd has never even heard of a fill, but to lay it down, with the feeling he has is not easy. Charlie Watts...

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

When I first started to play, back in the mid 80's, I was clueless. I thought Artemis Pyle was good and Steve Smith and Phil Collins were average. Got that one wrong.

Re: Tuning woes

Snare has always been the hardest for me. Sometimes I get it where I want, then come back the next day and wonder what I was thinking. I use a Metal Pearl snare 14 x 6.5, with an Emperor X Batter...

Re: I can't believe how much I sucke when it comes to soloing.

After 30 years for me, I cannot really do a solo. However, it has never bothered me. I do not play Jazz, where it is expected and honestly cannot stand guitar solos or drum solos. As much as I...

Re: First time studio experience recording drums

Wow, they asked you to bring Vistalites to the studio, something many have said could not be done, hope it went well. My first studio gig was in Nashville. I got a call from a sound tech who had...

Re: Ever look back at videos of yourself playing and cringe?

Cringe not at my drumming, which was probably better 15 years ago, but at my hair.

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Of course Jason is not his father. Jason is an excellent rock drummer, which almost any band would be glad to have. John is the Legend, perhaps the best Rock drummer ever (In my opinion he is, but...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

I just got done watching Celebration Day again and I will be totally honest, if it came down to "Cutting Heads" like the old blues players (Muddy Waters / Robert Johnson) used to do; Jason would...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Jason is an A list drummer, Carmine is basically forgotten. Back in the day, Carmine was a good drummer and a friend to John Bonham. After John died, Zep did not immediately call it over. There...

Re: Best way to tune a Powerstroke 3 for Bass Drum?

Same way Bonham did it. Toms and Kick tuned much tighter than people would imagine. It is the sound out front (Where the audience will be that matters). What we hear from the kit is totally...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

The Ludwig Supra phonic or the Ludwig Black Beauty, but DW makes some excellent snares (All the big players do). I just like metal snares for everything.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Even if Ringo walked into the studio one day, sat down and ripped When the Levee Breaks and then moved into Achilles Last Stand, you don't think Paul would have ever let that out? Not with Paul's...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

I have never seen the drum phrasing written out like you did, I like it. Steve Gorman talks about Ringo a great deal. That Ringo were his building blocks for how he plays and every pattern and fill...

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

That has always been my experience. As long as I had the groove down and the song sounded good, this was all that mattered. I do not play double kick, but have covered songs which were and I do my...

Question for the Professionals

Just out of curiosity, what happens or does anything happen, when a drummer endorses and gets paid by let's say a cymbal company, but he is out using cymbals from another brand?

Re: Groove Is King

Of course you did not invent what is basically playing for the music. Ringo did it, Bonham did it, even Moon did it. I absolutely, 100% believe the young drummers today have lost that ability to...

Re: Led's Latest Page

Ok, they will never get together and play again, like they did in 2007. Maybe Jimmy thought he had something to prove, after the wacked years of the 80's and that awful "No Quarter" album.

I know...

Re: Songs With Bored Drummers

Charlie Watts (a legend) sounds bored on several Stones songs, not mentioning names. Other times he sounds brilliant,...

Re: Did you ever notice.....

This is because they are deperately wanting my advice on cymbals, since I know it all. Joking!

I actually have noticed more people on the gear forum and more on the cymbal forum amongst that.

Re: Seeking Advice On Song To Learn

You are 100% correct, cannot believe I messed that up!

I would add another GnR song "Pretty Tied Up"

Take care!
