Re: Got stage names?

Don't anyone take the piss....

We did a gig years back. Young lady walked over. All the lads shuffled across sniffing for compliments. She...

Re: What's actually going well for you in your world of music?

Good effort mate. You look well actually.

I've battled it all my life. And failed. But finally through swimming, I'm making some inroads.

Re: Most Random bit of equipment that's failed at a gig

Not really an answer to the question but I'll share anyway.

We played a good support slot a couple of years back in front of a packed audience. The Tivoli in Buckley we were at, supporting From...

Re: Drumming leading to eviction

My only observation would be....drums are astonishingly loud. Especially that bass drum.

I used to practice at home in my detached house thinking "doing no-one any harm". Until my neighbour from...

Re: What's actually going well for you in your world of music?

Firstly, I'm alive and out and about playing. Which for a 50 year old with a serious weight problem is not something to take easily for granted.

Joking apart, I'm getting healthier. Started...

Re: Drummerís Place In Band

Re: Drummerís Place In Band

My God mate you're absolutely right.

I remember my last recording session and the bass player and guitarist on being asked "how many BPM" stating "120" for a tune of ours. Engineer switches the...

Re: Your weirdist gig?

Turned up to do a charity evening of punk a few weeks back in Nottingham.

Turns out it's at a 'Vegan Kitchen' at a place called the Sumac Centre.

We know the organiser well, but didn't know the...

Re: First paid gig!

Re: The gig that you turned down and regretted it

Don't know about where you live but punk is making a huge resurgence up in the North of England, especially across in South Yorkshire.

Re: The gig that you turned down and regretted it

I played in really crap punk bands in my early teens with pals of mine.

When I joined college one of the first things that happened was I joined the college covers band which was a Beatles...

Mitch, I don't know you from Adam but I have had a torrid time with this fucking disease. Including the fact it took a good drummer friend of mine earlier this year (and my mum when she was 41 and I...

Re: Guess what I left at home?!

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

Places we play are always fine, real ale, establishments.

With my campervan being usually parked outside, I find the temptation to be too good. I'm very weak.

All I will say to those...

Re: Are you amused or offended when someone standing near you mimes your playing?

I've seen videos of the front row of Rush concerts where fans have taken their own drumsticks along to play air drums with.

I imagine they don't realise how stupendously turdy they look :-)

Re: Weezer plays Rosanna..

I'd rather listen to this than the original....but I'm a bit weird.

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

I have to agree.

It sounds fantastic....but then my band will get two gigs at a weekend and by the end of those two gigs I never want to see a drum kit again (until the weekend after :-))

I'm...

Re: What's the worst drumming advice you've ever received?

It just means "batter them" or "hit them hard"

Re: Should I Quit Band Due to Constant Critiques By Singer?

Personally I'd tell her to piss off and concentrate on her singing.

And your bass player probably wants to shag her. Good luck with that.

Re: What's the worst drumming advice you've ever received?

Not "bad" advice. In fact not "advice" at all, but reading through this thread made me chortle at a comment made to me when we played a local charity festival last weekend in Bury (Lancs) called...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Got to be honest. I'd hang up my sticks and never touch drums again if my only option was to play that Mustang Sally/Brown Eyed Girl stuff.

People are generally willing to take a listen if your...
