Re: Thanks Gavin!

Very cool song Dale! and the drummer isn't half bad either ;-)

In full disclosure, two friends of mine mixed and mastered this, so I have a little bias regarding the sound - but seriously, very...

Re: Mike Mangini

Congratulations to Mike Mangini for getting the drum chair in Dream Theater as announced today! Maybe it won't be 2 years before another post in his thread? :-)

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

OK, so I used the search function to try and find a transcription of Anesthetize, and all I could find was that thrashy double pedal part (killer!) but what I am looking for is the part just before...

[QUOTE=stoneymonster;600551]Just had a listen to the new album medley and Time Flies. Just a quick question: on Time Flies, it sounds like there is no kick drum in the mix! Is it just really low or...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Man, you're not kidding! Maybe Fripp will ask you to not play any cymbals, as he did with Bruford! :) I can't wait to hear the interesting places that project goes in!

Re: Neil Peart

I've been a fan of Neil's since I started playing drums - in fact, he was probably the reason I started my music career 25 years ago! My avatar is actually one of two postcards that I had received...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Gavin,

Re: Neil Peart

I think that kit actually has gold plated hardware. He used to do brass, but for the 30th anniversary kit they plated the hardware in gold. I'm assuming the 30 commemorative kits will also be gold...
