Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

Yeah, I'm not sure what he means either. Of course there are some fantastic players out there playing jazz, but all the people I teach want to learn rock. I can't think of any jazz clubs in town. Not...

Re: British Drum Company

Never heard of BDC until very recently when i saw through a Facebook post that the local drum shop is now carrying some of their stuff. I'll have to take a look at it next time i go in.

Re: Good enough to get through a gig

This hasn't been brought up yet, but do you have a decent pedal? I'm assuming you do, but doesn't hurt to ask.

Re: Life on the road

Being on the road is great as long as you can juggle whatever you have going on at home with it. (Paying bills, maintaining relationships, etc). And of course, some places are more interesting and...

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

I saw them 7 or 8 times on that tour and you're right, there is lots of cool stuff on that album.
It doesn't surprise me that he doesn't play at all anymore. He seems like the kind of guy...

Re: Getting ready to rock Oakland Coliseum...

That was a whole process on its own... going back and forth with the Raiders people to figure out what we could play. They wanted a medley of classic rock kind of stuff. We pushed for them to allow...

Re: Getting ready to rock Oakland Coliseum...

Oh yes, good question...I meant to make a point about that. That is a basic stainless steel Taye snare drum that i got on Ebay for $66. And it sounded great.

Re: Thinking about double bass...

Go find a decent used double pedal and give it a shot. It's not all about straight 16th or 32nd note runs. There are lots of cool accents and fill ins you can do with it as well. Double bass rocks.

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

We haven't even performed it in front of an audience yet. During the drum section i have just been doing a 20-ish measure drum solo. The band just waits to hear the pre-established drum fill cue and...

Re: Boutique snare drums-roadworthy?

I'm sure that for the most part a boutique snare is fine on the road in a performance aspect. The problem is all the other people that are around your stuff. I had a beautiful wood hooped Taye snare...
