Re: Drumsticks and carry on luggage

I've had my bag diverted to be searched after they saw sticks on the scanner! However on opening the bag they just looked at the sticks, smiled at me, and handed it over!

Re: Do you wear rings when drumming?

Anything on my wrists annoys me, but I have rings on every single finger and don't even notice them. Most are now more oval than round! They are all just sterling silver, so nothing fancy or...

Re: London Drum Show

I really enjoyed the Rhythm technique sessions and I watched some great performances on both the Masterclass stage and the main stage. It was good to watch and listen to drummers who play genres that...

Re: Off days.
