Re: Drum summer camp in Europe?

Sorry, sir. Going to our usual summer camp in August but it is in upstate New York. Plenty of intense drumming, though!

Re: What happened with Vic ???

Hmmm. I went to Chicago for the King Crimson show a couple weeks back. I got in early enough to pop into Vic's. Looked like business as usual but did not see Vic anywhere. That night, after the...

Re: Happy Birthday Mr. er, Dr. Bruford

Indeed, happy "B" day!

Re: Nick Mason - Thoughts

I recall seeing him sitting in the middle of his double kick, clear kit and the line of roto-toms during the Dark Side of the Moon show and thinking to myself "That guy has the best seat in the...

Re: Drummers using E kits

No question that all the connections take time!

Another consideration here was portability. This rig consumed less space in my vehicle.

Re: Drummers using E kits

Uncle Larry You drive a very good point. I am working towards becoming good enough on an acoustic set to lay-off on the volume while still driving the band. Im just not there yet. The stuff we...

Re: The drum shop no more...

Yep, Buddy Rogers. The one on Harrison moved a lot more rock equipment than NCH. And I loved Ray Lammers! Bought drums, harmonicas, trombone slide oil and other stuff there. Can still see it in...

Re: Even the pros have one gear mishaps

A couple years back, I saw Pat Mastelotto furiously wrenching the lugs on his snare's beater head while holding down a nasty 7 time vamp during a Stick Men performance. Pretty impressive! I asked...

Re: Your 5 top gigs. As audience

These five have legitimate claim to being in my top 5 all time. Even more compelling, they were within less than a 12 month span:

Re: Opinion on size of Bass Drum Pedal

Size 13 wide here and comfort on the foot boards was definitely a consideration when I was recently shopping for a double pedal rig. I chose the Tama Speed Cobras and am very satisfied!

Re: Gigging With Two Drummers

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi Gavin:

I understand you have a new drumming mate in King Crimson as Bill Rieflin has announced a sabbatical for 2016. Jeremy Stacey will now sit between you and Pat on the front line. I saw...
