Re: Hating your playing, sometimes or always.

Could it be that you're looking for American style groove and swing? I've read that European jazzers have traditionally admired and aspired to those things found in American jazz. Still, you bring...

Re: Congratulations Jules

Nup, PFOG strikes me as an old school Aussie rock drummer.

Re: Gong-tastic!

When I saw this thread title I though it might be a tribute to the brilliant and recently departed Daevid Allen of the band Gong.

Re: Sloppy fills

I've fluffed more fills in my time that you can poke a stick at. Tons of them - maybe feeling a tad tight (or worse, you know another drummer is watching) and your limbs are set in position for the...

Re: Peart - would you hang out with him?

Yup, I doubt he's short of no-name drummers wanting to be his friend.

I'd like to talk philosophy with Neil in the impossible scenario of him bumming around in Sydney and I happened to run into...

Re: How to politely and professionally quit

People talk about quitting in person but it's not always possible. I quit my last band by email. I was planning to tell them on the Thursday at band practice but then an email came around to say that...

Re: What's on your bass drum reso head?

For me, one BD reso says "Guru" and the other "Pearl".

Re: Before I just jump in & do this ------

Wicked track, Andy, but sounds great - a Herbie Hancock vibe going on there. Sounds like a drumming job for David :)

Re: Is live music dead?

I gave up seeing live bands and playing live myself. Every time my last band got the least bit arty audiences would switch off. All most seem to want is volume and danceable beats.

In Sydney,...

Re: What Metaphors Do You Use in Your Playing?

When there's a thunderstorm I usually jam with it.

I used to tell my last band that keeping time was everyone's job, not just the drummer's. I said my role was to make the expected "drummy ...

Re: Can't seem to play fast

I commend you and I wish more people were as humble as you.

Re: The legendary sweet spot

Being a slapdash tuner I've always found that good quality drums are more forgiving of my tuning "sins" than cheapos, in that there are more good sounds you can get from them.

Re: S****y albums done by great bands..

True and well said, 8. It brings is back to what a few have been saying about The Beatles's weakest albums:

The Beatles grew apart and the creative tensions were so great they couldn't plough...

Re: S****y albums done by great bands..

No one can be at the top of their game all the time, eh?

Many bands start out brilliant but lose the magic through commercial pressure or aspirations. The Tubes. ELP (as mentioned). Genesis....

Re: Neil Peart

8Mile will like this but I agree that Neil is a fantastic drummer. Absolutely brilliant. I would love to have a tenth of his skills. He also seems highly intelligent and in every interview I've seen...

Re: Terri Lyne Carrington: The Spiritual Journey of Being Creative

Nice. Playing an instrument is surely character building!

Still, there's plenty who just want to party, seek status or pay the bills.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I'd like to have the latest Rolands or Yammies but I don't have the space to set them up, given that my acoustic kit already rules my lounge room.

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

Back in the day I had a stick bag hanging from the floor tom lugs. I didn't have a floor tom with the Mabels and it was inconvenient. Usually I'd leave my hand bag next to the throne and have some...

Re: Before I just jump in & do this ------

I see your point. I was thinking that if we were singers you'd ask them to sing a song so I was thinking along those lines.
