Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi Gavin...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Once again you are "the man"! Thanks for your response Gavin. I just think someone pumped this engineers head with the "tune your snare to the key of the song" thing.
Needless to say I recorded 12...

Re: Eddie Hoh (Fast Eddie Hoh)

I've tried finding info on him also with no luck. He's a great drummer
and my favorite track by him is "Going Down" by the Monkees..
Sweet jazz chops on that tune.

Re: Jerry Gaskill

I'm a huge King's X fan and I love Jerry's playing with the band. What amazes me most

in their song "We...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi Gavin. Just curious if you've heard of the Canadian drummer Rick Gratton and also

I meant to ask you before if you studied Rick Gratton's book "Rick's Licks" and if so, what did you think of the book. The reason I ask is that some of your fills have a Gratton style to...

Re: STICK TWIRLING AND SHOWMANSHIP TECHNIQUE.

Now that's impressive. I'd love to see him play a kit and do that but even just

Re: Big kit = small Big kit = big ____

I have the best of both worlds.. A big set of Yamahas and a few 4 and 5 piece kits including my '53 Gretsch. Both have their points but my reason for a big kit is the extra sounds or voices if you...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi again Gavin

With Porcupine Tree and Rush releasing new albums soon, is there a chance you
