I might go. I have a pass set up, but not sure if I'll be able to make it down.

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

I saw them 7 or 8 times on that tour and you're right, there is lots of cool stuff on that album.
It doesn't surprise me that he doesn't play at all anymore. He seems like the kind of guy...

Re: Getting ready to rock Oakland Coliseum...

That was a whole process on its own... going back and forth with the Raiders people to figure out what we could play. They wanted a medley of classic rock kind of stuff. We pushed for them to allow...

Re: Getting ready to rock Oakland Coliseum...

Oh yes, good question...I meant to make a point about that. That is a basic stainless steel Taye snare drum that i got on Ebay for $66. And it sounded great.

$66 snare drum, good drum...

Re: Thinking about double bass...

Go find a decent used double pedal and give it a shot. It's not all about straight 16th or 32nd note runs. There are lots of cool accents and fill ins you can do with it as well. Double bass rocks.

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

We haven't even performed it in front of an audience yet. During the drum section i have just been doing a 20-ish measure drum solo. The band just waits to hear the pre-established drum fill cue and...

We just learned Supernaut very recently, and it's a pretty cool song.

My favorite is probably 3 Little Pigs by Green Jelly. It's also the only song we do that I know all the words, lol.
We are going to start playing We All Die Young by Steelheart also, and I have...

Re: Do you have a piece of equipment that you've used since day 1 and still use it regularly?

I don't have anything from Day 1, but I do have a Pearl Eliminator double pedal that i bought in 2003 (I believe) and it has been played at probably well over 1,000 shows in 40 something states and...

Re: Boutique snare drums-roadworthy?

I'm sure that for the most part a boutique snare is fine on the road in a performance aspect. The problem is all the other people that are around your stuff. I had a beautiful wood hooped Taye snare...

Re: The ALUMINUM Snare thread.

I have a 14x5 Taye aluminum snare, and it's great! The one I'd really like to get is their 14x6 aluminum snare with wood hoops. I think Bermuda mentioned having one and really liking it. I tried one...

Re: Taye Drums. Any good ?

I realize this is a 'thread resurrection' but I like to chime in when it comes to Taye drums. I've got a ParaSonic kit, StudioMaple kit, and two TourPro kits (which they don't make anymore), 7 or 8...

Re: So we all know big drums are out, but still tempted with this....

Re: Chronicling rental/backline kits from around the world! 😁

Here at Camp Darby (near Pisa) they had this Mapex kit for me. Appears to be some sort of signature kit. I've never heard of the guy (guess i should google it), but the drums are really nice!
