Re: Where do you draw the line with Frankenstein?

Apparently Bill Rieflin, one of three drummers (incuding the estimable Gavin Harrison and Pat Mastelotto) in the new version of King Crimson isn't concerned about his Frankenstein kit!

Re: Discouragement for Chops I Don't Have

Indeed this has been an excellent discussion!

At the level and the type of gigs the majority of us play, money is made with the right foot (or left foot for the sinister ones!). Give the folks a...

Re: Another Who's the Greatest Poll

Good thing Buddy is dead. He'd see this, serve everyone else on the list a bowl of f**king clam soup, kick their collective keesters AND out drum them!!

Re: Portnoy and the Winery Dogs

I don't follow this band. I am not a fan of any of the bands these guys have been in. I don't have any ill will towards any of them. They are just not my cup of tea.

That said, groups are in a...

Re: Did Bill Bruford stop practicing for a while

Good insight on this period from the man himself in his autobiography. Much of this could be due to Robert Fripp demanding that BB pretty much forget everything he had done before.

Re: ASIO Audio Drivers - Source?

Re: Will I be satisfied switching

I agree with Tamadrm to some extent: two totally different experiences and you may or may not like what you have to give up. I will say as an owner of both that when given a choice, I'll play my...

ASIO Audio Drivers - Source?

Hi Everyone!

Re: Snare wire strands

My 12" Sonor Protean has only 8 wires and has great snap regardless. In the design brief, Gavin Harrison suggested his trick of removing the outermost wires from standard snare strainers to more...

Re: Hart Dynamics?

Believe I saw over on Vdrums that Hart had ceased all operations and that there were several companies interested in obtaining spares to service the folks who will need them.

Re: Which Bassist would you hire?

For me, T- Lev without a second thought. Check out his discography and show me something he hasn't done. Killer chops, great attitude, incredible experience, and great backup vocals if needed.

Re: Really Hard Songs

Not fast, in 4/4, but an odd feel and grouping that makes it easy to get lost. Try Bonnie the Cat by Gavin Harrison and Porcupine Tree.

Re: Sonor SQ2 and Dale's Drumshop

FWIW, I'll add my 2 cents. I had a great experience dealing with Dale's, even by mail order. My Sonor Newport Beech kit and Protean snare were priced very attractively and quickly dispatched after...

Re: Your favourite drum fills of all time, EVER!

Bill Bruford's off-kilter entrance on "One More Red Nightmare" from King Crimson's Red always brings a smile to my face. Trashy sounds from the banged-up Zilco and strokes where you least expect...

Re: Why Do Bands Have Two Drummers?

I posted this several months back on a similar thread about why two drummers. Given the discussion about Mastelotto and Bruford, it is pertinent. Note too that the next incarnation of Crimson will...
