Re: Ringo Starr

Remember those images. The cymbal stands look like they are ready to fall over at any minute, and seems like everything is creeping away from poor Ringo. Worlds most famous band in a huge concert...

Re: Rhythm Traveler vs. SpotLight SE

Slingerlandfreak, question on the Lazer kit. Did you buy it from a dealer in Europe or did you have to go direct to Factory? I'm in the States, I'd have to try to find one. I've had 4 back...

Re: Playing for about ten years, thinking of finally getting a teacher.

Never too late. I started at age 7-9. Took lessons again around age 14-15, again in my late 20's and most recently around early 40's. The worst part of the early 40's was seeing kids in their...

Re: What's Your Favorite Song?

I too love that whole album. It was one that I was drumming to in the late 60's early 70's along with Iron Butterfly "In the Gadda Davida" the 17 minute version and all sides of Kiss Alive.

Re: What's Your Favorite Song?

Right now my favorite from our bands play list is "Let's get it on" by Marvin Gaye. I just love the groove of that song.

A song that always makes me smile and feel good is "Loves me like a rock"...
