Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

Pre-digital, drummers used to gather in person at these things called "Drum Shops" and discuss drums and drumming in person. Maybe trade some licks, get advice, or just talk about drums and drummers....

Re: When disaster strikes: Your opinion

As much as I love my drums, I think I'd grab the hard drives out with all my song ideas and various recordings.

I could buy new drums. I could never remember all the bits of music.

Re: Grand jury indicts Journey drummer Deen Castronovo on rape, sex abuse allegations

Kind of funny given Omar auditioned and was rejected to replace Steve Steve Smith back in 85/86.

But then they auditioned and rejected dozens of name drummers at the time.

Re: Grand jury indicts Journey drummer Deen Castronovo on rape, sex abuse allegations

This really saddens me.

Deen has been one of my favorite overall drummers since the late 80's. I used to buy all sorts of Shrapnel albums (Shrapnel being a record label known for putting out hard...

Re: Band Meet and Greet

Not sure. I'd suspect meet and greets go way back to the big band days, but I can't prove it.

Monetizing meet and greets is largely a fall out of napster/internet/downloading. Bands don't make...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Steve Gadd used to be a cocaine addict.
And the list...

Re: anyone own or tried the DW concrete snare?

As much as I love, love, love my DW maple snare,

I have no idea why they made a concrete version.

I just imagine it would break if you dropped it.

Re: Crap rehearsal = great gig?

I will say, some of the most memorable gigs are where things went horrible wrong, yet the band played through it anyway and responded with a great performance.

Re: Bid like a man!

This is why I've pretty much given up shopping on ebay.

Unless there is a "Buy it now" option at a decent price, there's no point.

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

When I was a teen, and in my 20's I had busy practice routines.

Now as a 40-something with two kids and running my own business, my practice routine consists of me looking at my drum kit while...

Re: What method of drum video critiquing do you go by?

Pretty much.

I have no idea why people watch drum covers. I kind of get why people make them, but I can't understanding watching them.

Live clips, who knows the circumstances.

Overall, I...

Re: Turning Pro

I think you're confusing two different concepts:

Professional drummer

and

Great teacher

Being one doesn't make a person automatically be the other.

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

File under, well, duh.

They were never marketed as being superior audio quality headphones, they were marketed as being fashion items.

Re: Clem Burke

Clem is just a great rock drummer.

Lots of energy with a lot of enthusiasm that shines through his playing.

And while he may not be super technical, he was never super simple either. He...

Re: Playing covers vs. playing originals... or both?

I played a lot of covers in my early 20's. At once point I was playing 3 nights a week for cash.

The cash was nice, but I got to the point where I realized this is just not why I spent all that...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

I agree.

I recall when I was younger, I thought I'd start collecting signature sticks, just to have, because at the time, they were few and far between. But then it quickly got out of control, so...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Perhaps.

But at times I also think it's why my music career never quite happened the way I wanted it to. I just couldn't buy into a majority of trends.

I have buddies I went to music school...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Ginger Baker hasn't had a nice thing to say about anyone in at least 30 or 40 years.

I'm surprised anyone still pays attention to anything that comes out of his mouth.

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

There is a company called Rockenwraps that's been doing that since 2006, and they weren't the first ones to do it either.

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Except they all just cut their hair, traded their spandex for flannel , tuned to drop D, and continued on playing flaux-metal songs with new lyrics about being depressed and doing heroin instead...
