Re: If you ever dreamed of playing in Buddy Rich's band, this may change that!

I think that was hilariously funny, and I'm sure some of his Band members were laughing pretty hard too.

Being on the road all the time is beyond stressfull.

Gotta Toughen Up!

Re: Carter Beauford

I'm in a serious DMB cover Band, finally, and it feels good playing along with Carter's approach and method. But open-handed is key to alot of sneaky hi-hat and ride combo's that Carter is known for....

Re: What are the best shoes to play bass drum with?

I'm a Drummer who believes in detailed technical drumming, and footwear are just as important as the type of sticks I'm using for the score. And being adaptive to anything as a Drummer is also very...

Re: What are the best shoes to play bass drum with?

I think socks with rubber grips (like Jamsjr44 wrote) are the best move to make if you require maximum pedal-feel at the time. I never put on footwear that have heavy soles when I play, that's...
