Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

Two of the bands that I play in adhere to the philosophy "Wiggles for Adults". Both are cover bands that incorporate original material but at many shows we leave the originals to a minimum for the...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

People generally take it as as a given for me....I must look like a drummer.

Re: Half Home-Made Snare Drum

Bah! It looks fine. People pay big bucks these days for that pre-loved look. I think they call it distressed. And if you ain't happy with the look why not try that Bum Wrap stuff that Gruntersdad...

Re: Is my drum copper?

I'd be surprised if it's steel, but a magnet will tell that for you. If it doesn't stick my guess is either copper or brass. Brass can and will oxidize like that over time being as it is mostly...

Re: Best vehicle for a gigging band?

I think you are living in fantasy land! What guitar players do you know that only bring one guitar?

Get an old airport shuttle bus...preferably diesel.

Re: My Camco Refurb with pix!

Incredible kit! Love it in every way, finish, sizes, just stunning.

The only nit-pick I have is that there is no such thing as 24k white gold. 24k gold is pure gold and it is yellow. 18k white...

Re: That special place between swing and straight

I like this as an example. You can either follow the 16th of the hats and the rhythm guitar for that straight feel or the keys and the lead guitar for the swing....

Re: Drum gigs?

Sessions, recordings and providing drums and drumming services,(i.e. playing) is what I would call a 'gig'.

Re: How should a band practice?

The real question here is what are you in it for? I mean, usually for me it's to have fun with mates, communicate musically and make a few bucks for groceries and petrol.

That being said I think...

Re: Changing snare tuning for different songs.

Firchie Drums. Kind of a mix between a roto-tom and a snare drum. You can tune it on the fly.

Re: Scorpions Fans

Loved it! Brings back so many memories of my adolescence.
