Re: Canít hear my kick!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned installing a ButtKicker on the throne yet. That would help with the "can't hear the kick" problem.

Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

On a video with Stewert Copeland, he said "Jazz is more fun to play than listen to."

Re: Lyrical meanings

I don't think that "Mary Jane's Last Dance" is about weed, but a guitar player friend of mine insists that it is.

Re: Wearing watches while drumming

I've worn a watch and I've not worn a watch. Makes no difference to me.

Re: What is Your Geek Out Drum Thing?

I don't really consider myself geeky about anything, but I'm sure my non-musician friends would say otherwise because I can discuss the difference between wood and metal snare drums, 30 and 45-degree...

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

Don't really see this as a trend. I don't see them going away any time soon.

Re: A re-statement of the obvious

I think the way it works is everyone is given a 30-second window on December 24th (Festiivus morning) at 4:08 am in which to air your grievances. Mis-spellings will disqualify a post.

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

I would just take it to a machine shop. You'll get it done cheaper than the cost of a good quality cutter.

Re: 2019 NAMM roll-call

I've attended three times over the years, but I couldn't wrangle tickets this year. The highlight of all three times was the 15-30 minute meet with Jon. Have fun, guys and girls.

Re: I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody"

I enjoyed it. I had every Queen album up until "The Game", ("Queen II" is still my favorite). Saw them on their "Sheer Heart Attack" and "Night At The Opera" tours. Know a lot about the band, but not...

Re: Your Moment of Glory

I have had the opportunity of playing a few times with various members of the Chantays. One time the lead guitarist in my surf band got sick suddenly and Gil Orr agreed to fill in for him. After the...

Re: Stick between index and middle finger

Bev Bevan does that too. I think it's because he was taught to play mallets in the orchestra.

Re: Albums that had a huge impact on your current playing?

I would have to say the first Bad Company LP. Simon Kirk gives a textbook lesson in how to play for the song.

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

I've seen Eric Clapton with three virtuoso drummers: Phil Collins, Steve Ferrone, and Steve Gadd. They all brought their individual style to the gig. I'm sure that Eric didn't tell them to try to...

Re: What is the cleverest instruction given to you by a music director?

Not by a music director, but I was reading an interview with Art Blakey in Modern Drummer and he said, and I paraphrase: Don't worry if you make a mistake. Learn to do that mistake on purpose.
