Re: Is the drummer always the last to know?

Re: This thread is for all the lurkers

Re: 12 Myths About Drumming

Ummmm.......Yesterday, for one. Brilliant song. No drums. I guess you could claim that's the ultimate in leaving space.

Re: 12 Myths About Drumming

There is no way to answer this question, because the answer can't be validated in any way. I could throw out 20 names, but it wouldn't mean anything. I could claim this old dude down the street...
