Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

In the Orange County C/L, it seems like everybody is hip to the prices for used drum equipment and a lot of people are asking way too much for their stuff. The lucky finds are few and far between,...

Re: Advice please?

What they are auditioning is your time and feel on the beats, not your fills. Save that stuff for song endings.

Re: 40th Anniversary of Physical Graffiti - How Cool Is This?

I guess it's cool if you haven't heard the album 10,000 times already.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Finally saw the movie last night. I liked it. Like you guys said, it wasn't much about drumming, just dealing with a hard-ass teacher. I like how Fletcher got his revenge, then it backfired, he was...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

You just have to look at a PDP Ace, which is another Black Beauty copy and looks exactly like the BoB. You'll see how much of a better build quality the Pork Pie has. I owned the Ace, but one day...

Re: I thought this was strange....

Maybe try a G2 on it just to see. Put that Level 360 design to the test.

Re: Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

It's funny some of the crap you guys have to go through. My whole experience with open jams, in a nutshell: they wanna keep me there drinking all night and when I do finally play, it's only two or...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

This is true. The other day, my floor tom was sounding as dead as a door nail. I gave the tension rods a few good turns on the batter head, but I quickly realized that no amount of tuning was going...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

Really you just wanted to show off your cross sticking ability in the nicest way possible. A thinly-veiled attempt I might add.

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

No over-exuberance. You were playing in the moment and for the song. That song deserves an ending like that. Nice cross sticking btw. No derision here buddy.

Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There must be something about this kit that you like or else you wouldn't have bought them. Maybe you paid twice as much as they're worth, but like someone said...

Re: Does playing covers change you?

Lemme just add my two cents on a serious note. I don't prefer playing cover songs, but I will to keep my chops up. And I do. I don't think playing covers has changed me in any negative way. I know a...

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

I thought that oddness was Rick Allen's thing that made him great. My world has been shaken today hearing that it was programming. I admit though, I've programmed a song or two myself.

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

Coda by Zeppelin didn't do much for me.

The White album is my favorite Beatles album.

I didn't like 10,000 days by Tool that much either.

There are too many to list. Even Frank Zappa had...

Re: Brand Loyalty

I'll play a variety of sticks and heads, I've been playing Tama drums for the last 20 years. I liked my first kit. Sold it to buy another Tama kit. That was a great kit too. Had to leave it behind...

Re: Why I Never Collected Famous People’s Autographs

When I was 12 or 13, my family got to visit a famous drummer's Boxing Day party. He took me & my sister to his gear room and he talk to us about his gear and mostly his snare drum. He gave me a...

Re: Your Favourite Songs To Cover / Play Along To

Lately I've been liking Georgia on a Fast Train by Billy Joe Shaver, but for a classic I really like Summertime Blues by The Who.

Re: I can't believe how much I sucke when it comes to soloing.

It's a really fun song when we get the whole band to join in. They do a little. So that's a synco pated beat, is it? I never knew.



It did come across a little mean, but I think Tony nailed it....

Re: Techear recommendation in Los Angeles

I don't know if he studied with Joe or Dom, but you can contact Rick Latham at ricklatham.com and talk to him about lessons. He has a good reputation around here.
