Re: Clem Burke

Yes, this part really speaks to his abilities. When multiple A-list artists seek to work with a particular drummer, you know they've got something going on. This is surely where the comparisons to...

Re: Clem Burke

I used to be in a band where this song was suggested as a cover tune for us. I actually lobbied for Rapture instead because I thought it would be more of a crowd-pleaser (and I think I was right on...

Re: Clem Burke

Yeah, I can see that all of his drums/cymbals were set up pretty flat during an era when lots of angles seemed to be the in-thing.

Clem Burke

Pretty surprised to see there wasn't a thread dedicated to Clem, so I decided to start one. He was a strong influence on me, and really contributed to the Blondie sound, I thought. I came across this...

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

All 3-piece kits are worthy!

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

Yes, I agree. I've worked the kick into my playing much more since going with a 3-piece, particularly with fills. Of course, there is nothing stopping me from doing that with a larger kit, I'm simply...

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

Love it!


Thanks! One thing I've noticed about 3-piece setups is you can really get a good look at all the drums since they are not blocked by other drums. I think this is a big plus with your...

Re: Peter Lau's Innovative Compact Drum Kits

Cool. His kits are definitely worth dedicating a page to. Just fyi, on my browser, the first 7 photos/captions are haphazardly spaced and out of alignment with the rest of the images.

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

That Guru kit is sweet. Gorgeous drums and great sizes.

Here's my 3-piece in a few different configurations.

Re: Stage Banter

LOL! I got several minutes in. It helps if you read the comments. Some are quite funny, e.g. "It's like the 'I Have A Dream' speech only with pancake makeup and chest hair."

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

I thought the reason was pretty clear. I don't like to see limits placed on artistic expression, however well-intentioned. I'm not advocating hate at all. Only free expression. I'll illustrate with...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

I'm going by the most common defintion of the word 'hate,' and the full quote appears to adhere much closer to the definition I am using:

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

Sure, I guess an argument could be made that "all-consuming" anything will kill creativity, because you've limited yourself to exploring just one thing, but I don't see why "hate" should be singled...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

No, those are not hateful topics, but how would you describe the band's feelings toward the "machine" they were raging against?

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

Well, you are using a narrow definition of the word, but that is not the only meaning, nor the most common meaning. Here is the primary dictionary definition:

1. to dislike intensely or...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

Are they? I'd say it depends on the the player and depends on the listener.


Fine, if that's your personal experience. Doesn't mean everyone else's will be the same.


Again, that's fine if it...

Yes, Agrippa. I recently watched "Marley," a great documentary about Bob Marley (now streaming on Netflix). There's a guy who projected a pretty positive attitude, but many of his songs definitely...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

The idea that any emotion should be suppressed in a musical context is bizarre to me. I believe an artist should explore whatever emotions they are feeling at the time, and if hate is the predominant...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

I don't think this is anything to be proud of or to advocate for. The disengagement of US electorate is a major reason why the average person keeps getting screwed over as deals get made by the...

Love leads one to rage? They may have been revolutionaries (or marketed themselves that way, at least), but I don't think they were anarchists.

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

Agreed. Were I in Rick's position, I'd have done the same. David Robinson was the drummer for The Cars, and played on all their early albums, generating several hit songs. Then they hooked up with...
