Re: Practice without set?

I don't think I've ever met a drummer who doesn't air drum. Drums are the easiest instrument to practice without actually having the instrument. Tap your feet & slap your legs! Of course, some of...

Re: Do you play covers exactly like the originals?

Usually, I do as most have said so far, play it similar to the orignal, but w/ my own personal style. Often times even the drummer who played it on the studio recording doesn't always play that song...

Re: In a rut for a couple of years

Start slow, very slow, & gradually, very gradually, increase your speed until you can't play said rudiment any faster. Then gradually slow back down again. Do this over & over each time you...

Re: Nick Mason

Love Nick Mason's drumming! His cymbals always sound beautiful. Barrett era Floyd is my fav., followed by Saucer thru Wish You Were Here, then Animals thru Final Cut. After Waters left I mostly...

Re: When speeding up is good

That's exactly what's been happening in my situation, except the singer is the one who's been counting us off, & I stay steady with his lead in, but he insists I've sped up. I think that he wants to...

Re: When speeding up is good

To try & get back to the OP, a lot of songs from the 70's or earlier, before click tracks were in wide usage, had a tendency to fluctuate in tempo, including a lot of songs by the Beatles, the...

Re: Forgotten Drummers

James Fox of the James Gang. That was his band (James Gang), but, of course, he was overshadowed by the talented, charismatic, smokin', tokin', Joe Walsh.

Also--though he passed away in 2008 &...

Re: When speeding up is good

I'm playing in a group right now where the singer/rhythm guitarist likes to count the songs off too fast & then tries to slow it down once we're into it. He tries to blame it on me & say that I'm...

Re: Joey Kramer

Great stuff! None of those songs would be the same w/out his playing. He's a great example of a drummer who doesn't just hold the song up, but doesn't overplay either. His rhythms make each song...

Re: Anyone read his biography?

I read it a while back. It started out great, but got a little sappy about half-way thru, if I remember correctly. I'd recommend it for Oprah's Book-of-the-Month Club. No, not really. It's kind...

Re: Phil Rudd

Phil Rudd rocks! The way he can play that steady beat & drive the song with such confidence & power puts him in a class with few others. Doug Clifford from CCR belongs in that class, too, along...

Re: If you could musically have your way, what situation?

Blues rock, local gigs only, steady enough income for me to quit my day job.

Re: Bucket Drumming!

About 25 years ago now, I accompanied a friend of mine, him on guitar and me on bongos, playing on street corners in downtown Seattle. We didn't get a permit but we didn't get busted. Just lucky, I...
