Re: Chris Squire, Yes Bassist found dead

RIP Chris. One of the best bass players on the planet. Fragile was such a huge influence on me as a kid. He passed peacefully in his sleep the same way as my Dad did - same disease, almost the same...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

I recommend the Sonor Safari kit. I bought one years ago for a band I joined (and later quit) because my drums (and the drummer) were too loud for the small clubs we played at times. They did the...

Re: DW bass drum muffling pillows

That's the Weckl Remo muffle http://www.daveweckl.com/remo.htm. He got the idea from Simon.

Re: DW, the Scientology of drum companies?

Totally agree with the OP, it is the Scientology of companies, now we need a Jason Beghe of the drumming community to blow the lid of this as in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHb0BZyF5Ok

Re: Mapex Mars vs Armory - worth the higher price?

I just bought a 6pc Mars for a great price. I simply can't believe how great these drums are for $599. The SonicClear is a total advantage. I'm actually keeping the stock heads. This may end up being...

Re: New find! 80's Wailin Smash video = ultimate epicness :)

Re: Dave Lombardo: Metal's Greatest Drummer?

Yup, it's documented. I was gonna add that earlier on, and I'm sorry but Dave can't do a lot of what Gene does. Come to think of it, not many people can, he's just unreal...

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Damn you are fortunate. I'm kicking myself today because I never got to see them live back then. I'll look for footage on the net. What band did you play with back then?

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Re: Blake Richardson + Tomas Haake + Elliot Hoffman

I would suggest Jay Postones from TesseracT. He's quite unlike any prog metal drummer I've heard. Anup Sastry from Skyharbor and Intervals is another monster.

Re: Dave Lombardo: Metal's Greatest Drummer?

No disrespect to Dave or anyone, but, I'm sorry, the answer is no.

He's very good at what he does for Slayer. I'll leave it at that, on a positive note :)

Re: Sonor essential or Mapex Armory

The Mars is soooooo good that I almost gave up my Starclassic B/B's for them. The price point is unreal considering what you are getting.
