Re: Get off your drummer's throne and

I'm sure your heart is in the right place, but I wonder about your head. It generally isn't a good idea to insult (even in a joking way) people you think you may want to be friends with, until they...

Re: Any of you guys and gals on Twitter?

Haga, Mr Madge and diverse relatives haven't made the cut either. As for our children, FB used to be the only way I knew what they were up to, until they discovered how to filter content.

Re: Any of you guys and gals on Twitter?

Yeah, it can be bizarre. What's good about it, though, is that it is a very effective way of discovering who supports UKIP/BNP/BritainFirst, and it's equally easy to unfriend them.

I like it...

Re: Any of you guys and gals on Twitter?

My FB experiences consist mainly of cats, drums and cocktails, the latter generally gin-based.

I do, however, regularly receive tweets from Her Majesty the Queen, via @Queen_uk, aka Gin o'Clock....

Re: Any of you guys and gals on Twitter?

CBA tweeting, largely because I can't navigate my way around Twitter. Just tried to find the pair of you and couldn't.

FB is my thang.

Re: My speed has stalled

Yay, fab! Will you be playing your to-die-for new kit and cymbals, or are you going to the teacher? Either way, enjoy it, and be sure to report back :)

Re: My speed has stalled

It isn't like starting to run, when you have to push yourself outside your comfort zone in order to improve. If you stay within your comfort zone, it will automatically expand. Says she, who is one...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Haha, thank you Jim! (It was Take 7,642; no wonder I went Phew!)

Now, inspired by your 2014 entry, I made another video. I know that it has to be substantially different from the other one, so I...

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Aww, chaps, you've made me go all warm and fuzzy <3



I worked on the principle that the less I played, the less likely I was to mess up.

I bet Bill Ray is quaking in his boots now, eh ;)

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Right, I think I've submitted my entry. Recording the piggin thing was even more difficult than playing it! I'm sorry for the egregious quality of the audio - let alone the playing - but it was the...

Re: But What To Wear?

An extreme paisley shirt with quieter trousies would be fab. I'm thinking maybe a dark shirt with a tie in one of the colours of the, erm, strides.

I have no intention now of asking the Stylist...

Re: Difficult band members

Haha, that's absolutely true!

I'm in two bands. I've been very good friends with the singer in one of them for a long time now, and although I've known the two guitarists for several years, we've...

Re: Sometimes, it all becomes so worthwhile :)

Re: But What To Wear?

If anybody can pull those trousies off, it's you, James ;) Pity they'll largely be hidden behind your kit, but like my heels, you'll know they're there.

What you wearing on top? Oh and forget my...

Re: But What To Wear?

Ok, now I have time to reply properly. This is just my twopenn'orth, James, and if you like I can ask my daughter (Styllist to the Star) for her advice, but IMO black should be avoided, for the...

Re: On teaching

I was going to say that, only less succinctly, and I'd replace "novel" with "astonishing".

Re: The 2015 funky Guru snare competition starts now! Entry details :)

Yes, I couldn't sort it but I think I've found a way to play the backing track loud enough to be heard while I drum. If this proves to be the case - I'm away for a few days - then I won't have...

Re: Can you read sheet music?

I played piano before I played drums, so yes I can read sheet music, including orchestral scores.

I did an experiment with my drum teacher on this very subject. I wanted to know if I learned...

Re: My Kit Build Begins!

That's a beautiful kit - you are going to have fun!

Love the white, too. Timelessly classic.
