Re: Sometimes, it all becomes so worthwhile :)

That's great - you might need to start collecting albums where you know it's Gurus. That should be a pleasure since Guru drummers all have excellent taste ;)

Crossed fingers for word-of-mouth...

Re: Phil Rudd pleads guilty

It's a sad waste. Phil was set up for life and might not have had a worry in the world. Stuff up.

Re: Band leaders

Love to help, Larry, but I usually played in "democracies". We didn't get much done but it was fun.

For a while I was doing drum spots for a band leader who was collecting a stable of players and...

Re: But What To Wear?

Street clothes. Shorts in summer, but I guess it's different for a woman to wear shorts on stage to a man. In hindsight, the only "professional" things I ever did when I played out was be on time, be...

Re: On teaching

The older generation always thinks the last generation were pussies. That's probably been happening since tribal times. The gentrification of teaching is symptomatic of broader society.

Re: How do you cue your live tempos at the gig?

I used to sing the most difficult or tongue twisting line of the song to myself and base the tempo on that.

Re: Felt vs plastic

I've always used felt. I like the feeling of felt on the drum head. These days I play low volume so there's obviously no need to change. If I played metal I'd definitely use plastic or wood beaters,...

Re: The big debate: tribute bands - yay or nay!?

For me, it's because I'm not very good at playing other people's stuff and feel more comfortable playing things my own way on the fringes. Also, I'd much rather see a good original band than a good...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Don't remember. It was the 70s and 80s. I do remember trying different brands to find plastic tips that wouldn't fly off. I used to hit hard back then.

Yes, in pop and rock you get more sparkle...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I do too. It's softer and a little less defined. That suits me personally, and I imagine that versatile professionals find a use for that sound as part of their palette, along with plastic tips etc....

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Ditto. Also, like Stapes, I had problems with flying tips. That's with a "p".

Re: Equal Opportunity Hands?

That pretty well sums it up for me.

I can imagine that but the price is too high. Sitting and practicing. Like a disciplined adult. I never had the knack for it.

Maybe 60%? When I...

Hi Abe. Nice to see you spouting forth ...

About 50% but my left ghosts, drags and sweeps better. Matched grip with sticks, trad with brushes.

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: 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...

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,...
