Re: The worst gig of my life

Maybe I will. If so you will always be able to use your own gear at my place! But like I said, if all drummers were to band together and refuse to be treated with disrespect by the owners etc of...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I do agree that being able to adapt is an important skill. I just think that we as drummers should not have to be given a choice of "use this kit or dont play". I find that to be a very disrespectful...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Re: The worst gig of my life

That's what I was thinking when I read his posts. The reality is some people are just jerks. But I don't sweat it because what's the point.

I was told by the club there was a kit share before we...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Just to say, my band really had no major complaints about my playing on that gig. My bass player even commentedand how tight my time was. I was the one that was really upset about it after we got off...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Its true that I have taken some of the things that were said here personally. Such as
"If you were halfway as good as you think you are, you could have adjusted your playing." as well as other...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I do feel the need to say that if I have absolutely no other choice but to use a backline kit I will. All Im saying is that Im going to go out of my way to only use my own gear. If I am told that I...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I've been in my current band playing gigs for the last 7 months and this is the first time I've had to do a kit share. Every gig we have played has had multiple bands on the bill. So I think your...

Re: The worst gig of my life

You can go ahead and insult me if you like,it really makes no difference to me. That clearly shows your level of immaturity, being that you don't know me or my playing. I just choose to not get...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I think that if we as drummers all banded together and let it be known that giving us crap gear and expecting us to just make due is not acceptable and we all did refuse to play when treated this way...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Im right with you on your posts Skyking. I dont expect everything to be perfect on any gig. I just want the gear Im playing on to be at least decent. Which is why I really only want to play on my...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Im right there with you. The industry already treats musicians like crap. I think one of the reasons for this is because we as musicians have allowed that to happen and become the norm. I hate the...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I was very polite to the sound guy. He was a jerk to me, as well as to other people that were playing.

If a person spends the time to craft his parts he/she should not have to change them because...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Re: Twisted Sister Drummer dies

Very sad news. Stay Hungry was a huge album for me when I was a kid. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

The worst gig of my life

So last night I show up at the venue my band is playing at. As soon as I get there I find out 2 things: Our set time has changed, and the club wants all the drummers to do a drum share. I go to talk...

Technical playing and grooving

I remember reading an article with Vinnie Paul where he said that his goal as drummer was to always not play so technical that it went over non-musicians heads but to play technical enough to keep...

Re: I HIT TO HARD

Thanks Bill. Great lesson.

I studied with Dom Famularo for about 2 years once a month in the mid 2000"s. We worked on a lot of free stroke and moeller stroke things. So I really think I know what...

Re: I HIT TO HARD

I know that one of the reasons why I hit so hard when playing live is because I'm afraid that my drums are not projecting over the amps from the guitar and the bass. This happens both when my kit is...
