Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Kind of makes me happy that I am blissfully ignorant about all of this time signature debate! I am with him, I just sit down and hit things; most times it works out pretty well!

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

Sorry you don't see/agree with my point of view. Perhaps it is different where you are or the places you play. I am mostly speaking of bar gigs, private parties, wedding receptions, etc., which is...

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

This should probably go in the Unpopular Drummer's Opinion thread but, here goes. As someone who has been on both sides of the band thing for many years, that is, as management that hires bands and...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I like the song until it gets to that part........they definitely could have left that out!! I agree though, they both have done some amazing work. Like so many others who died way too young, it...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

With all due respect to both musical legends, I don't think either one of them had gotten to the methadone stage yet!

Re: Tuning to pitches...yes? no?

Yep, this is the way I have always done it regardless of the number of toms I use. I wouldn't know a pitch pipe from a bong pipe; well that was a little extreme, I did grow up in the '60's and early...

Re: Abidextrous drumming...

Well, well over my head and ability to try and even count it, much less ever think I could learn to play it, but to my untrained ears........some of it sounds like a beginner just starting out....

Re: The disconnect between musicians perspectives and audience perspective

Kind of my thoughts exactly. What is a little puzzling to me is, as inappropriate and over the top his playing was (not to mention all the things you said), he obviously has played enough to develop...

Re: Art and Music Professions worth Fighting For

I thought about that a few years back........ended up getting a new refrigerator instead! I not sure what that says about my mid life crisis at the time, but I sure have gotten a lot of mileage out...

Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

Larry, I am a little surprised to see you list Danny as an influence. (He is by far the biggest influence on me!). I am not trying to read too much into your past post so please forgive my...

Re: Ever been compared to a celebrity / legendary drummer?

Re: Drummers who have influenced you

First and foremost, my dad. Without him, I would have never started. Buddy Rich for bringing drummers to the forefront by TV appearances like The Tonight Show. Danny Seraphine for introducing me how...

Re: Are you as hot as you used to be? ;)

I hear you; I live in Alabama and the heat and humidity gets a little tougher to deal with as you get older! It use to never bother me when I was younger playing sports and doing all sorts of outside...

Re: Neil Peart - A Newfound Appreciation

I am not much of a Rush fan, although I do like some of their songs. I think Neil has wonderful skills and I really enjoy his active drumming style. I have never seen them/him play in person but I...
