Re: Future of Music

I imagine that no matter how technologically advanced we get there will always be musician purists who like to do things the 'old fashion' way. Just as likely is that there will be audience purists...

Re: Okay, Who LOOKS The Coolest?

A s a viewer I like to see a little flourish here and there - the Shannon Larkin reference was a good example. But,that is as much about energy as it is showing off.

While watching the Zoltan...

Re: Whats the song and drummer that made you want to play drums?

I could not pin down a single song, but in 1981 I stumbled into both Rush: Hemispheres and Iron Maiden: Killers.

Been obsessed with drums ever since. Thanks Neil and Clive.

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

L. Staley was the one that really got to me. Probably due in no small part because it seemed so inevitable after a certain point. Lots of others left me feeling bummed out but Layne's death really...

Re: Why are metal drummers looked down on?

By and large I agree. But it has take some time for the general population to accept that Bill Ward might be a drummer worth a second or third listen. I think it almost took mainstream acceptance of...

Re: Why are metal drummers looked down on?

This.

Metal is still a relative babe in the woods and is currently undergoing its hazing period into 'legitamacy.' But there are enough mega-talents in the genre that the discussion is different...

Re: Why are metal drummers looked down on?

Even as a long-in-the-tooth 'metal type' I must sadly concur.

Re: "Charlie Sheen' Drum session clip

This.

Was hoping to see a 'rock star from Mars' train wreck.

Re: for you RUSH fans.....new RUSH!!!

This was my impression as well. While I consider myself a Rush fan I'm not going to mindlessly trumpet everything they do as the best thing since sliced bread.

Re: Playing songs that have amateur drum parts to them

I don't believe these to be mutually exclusive. Dumb CAN be iconic because it's as much about context as it is the content itself. Conversely, the lofty and pedantic can lack relevance and fail to be...

Re: Buddy Rich thread deleted?

Interestingly, (to me at least) there is Looney Tunes content from the 40s/50s that you cannot obtain any longer due to racial themes. Of course, being taboo, they are some of the most watched...

I've had a similiar experience. For years I've dealt with foot tendonitis as a result of plantar fasciitis. Short version is tendon inflammation issues that resulted from being a runner who is...

Re: Drum tech. article

I'd be curious to know what kind of compensation a drum-tech at that level pulls down.

Re: drum snobbery

It seems like you just made a judgement that is counter to several of your posts. Did you not complain of persecution and unfair judgements based on similiar grounds?

Is it more reasonable to...

Re: Ever feel too...

I was very lucky. My father was an old school rock guy - as in Bill Hailey/Motown old school - so by the age of 8 when I bought my first album (Kiss: Alive!) I had been exposed to:

Re: Does anybody remember Jeff Indyke?

Looks like the repeated plastic surgeries have not been kind to an aging Clay Aiken who has taken up percussion.

Re: drum snobbery

You should be careful. Between the sweeping dismissal of an entire genre of drummers and patting yourself on the back, you might pull an arm muscle.

Re: drum snobbery

I see your point, but listening to bands like The Sword and Orange Goblin, some bands are running plays straight out of the Sabbath playbook - not a rip mind you, I enjoy both of those bands.

Re: drum snobbery

A point I think worth making is that maybe some of the snobbery toward metal is not an entirely bad thing. Consider that as a genre metal pretty overtly stakes claim to being a category practically...

Re: drum snobbery

Depends on who you ask. That question often devolves into some not-so-fun ranting and chest thumping. For my money, Sam Dunn's metal chart is a good place to start the discussion.

Re: drum snobbery

Metal has always been guilty of the microgenre tendency of categorizing sounds. I'm not prepared to say it's valid or not but for those deeply conversant at the granular level, having a common...

Re: drum snobbery

As an old school hard rock/metal guy I can say a good bit of this is a bit of the 'spectacle' in relation to showmanship. Sure there are guys who use every part of their monster kits but you can also...
