Re: Groovy/catchy songs to jam to?

Re: I've made a horrific mistake....

Didn't realise Mapex Meridians were fake drums... no such thing as a bad drumkit, just different, a mature drummer would know that.

I just got my new kit and when I played it in the store it...

Re: Losing that second crash cymbal

I like having 2 crashes, 1 Stack/China, 1 ride, 1 hats. I have the 2 crashes because I 'ride' the right hand side one (above the ride), and I like to have my left hand free (from the right hand...

Re: What drum/cymbal/piece of gear have you owned the longest?

Unfortunately (I guess), I'm like Bo and all my stuff is easy come easy go. The 2 things that have lasted the time (12 years) are a Zildjian Stick Bag and a non branded (quite crappy) cymbal stand,...

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Dead set no from me, it just takes one asshole to ruin it for everybody. I lent my Pearl Elim pedals out to a friend of mine, he gave them to a friend of his, never saw them again. I harped on about...

Re: Steve Judd

Got to see Karnivool for the 5th time I think, about a month back, and this was actually the first time I'd seen them at an inside venue, and holy shit, Steve had some sort of trigger on his bass...

Re: Who would you play with?

RATM, Mammal and Karnivool. I can play most the stuff from the first 2 bands, but Karnivool would be very challenging, something I'd enjoy.
