Re: Ever been compared to a celebrity / legendary drummer?

One time after a gig, I was surprised when someone compared my drumming to Mitch Mitchell's. MM is a fantastic drummer -- far superior to me -- but I never really considered him to be much of an...

Re: Modern Drummer's list of 25 Greatest Drum Books

I really like Drum Wisdom, I've had it for probably 15 years or so and periodically revisit it. It sticks out like a sore thumb on this list, since it's not really an exercise book. It seems to...

Re: Barriemore Barlow

Count me as another fan of Mr. Barlow, he's definitely underrated in the pantheon of 1970s rock drummers. I always found his double bass work to be particularly inspiring -- Hunting Girl, Minstrel...

Re: John Densmore

I always loved John Densmore's playing in the Doors, it was a huge influence on me as a young drummer... Riders on the Storm, The End, and When the Music's Over are probably my favorite Doors tracks.
