Re: Bernard Purdie Tells His Story!

Great story! The kind of life that could only come from bygone eras.

Looking forward to the 2nd episode.

Re: Grand jury indicts Journey drummer Deen Castronovo on rape, sex abuse allegations

I hope he gets help (or time if true). The latest pictures of him make him look like a meth addict.

I've always enjoyed his playing and singing. For years, I wouldn't try to sing while playing....

Re: DCI 2015

I didn't, but had several friends that marched with Spirit of Atlanta. One (and her husband) still march in an adult corps now.

When in high school, our band director was a huge DCI fan, so all...

Re: New product idea again

Would that cape be more of the Rick Wakeman, Elvis Presley, or super hero type of cape?

Re: Got that text last night....

You're right. I absolutely take part of the blame. Baseball is a priority for my 13 y/o. So I make the time for that. Even then, due to getting up at 4:00 am precludes me staying out late on...

Re: Got that text last night....

Yeah, reached out to the rhythm guitarist and bass player to try to keep things in the loop. If they want to get together on the weekends, I'll be more than happy to join. Maybe it'll be a new...

Got that text last night....

The band has broken up due to scheduling conflicts. I'm part of the problem I guess. Between early work hours, and baseball schedules, I can't rehearse on weeknights, our bass player has a similar...

Re: Taking a break....

Been there, but I quit for over 30 years. Only recently have I gotten back into playing. Even back in the 70s it was tough in small town America. We only had a few bars period, much less that had...

Re: Colleges for drum set players

Manhattan School of Music is noted for their jazz programs, but their auditions are supposed to be a back-breaker.

Another that's supposed to be one of the best is the University of North Texas. ...

Re: Band leaders

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Re: My 1st drum kit - PDP CX Series. Advice for an old newbie??

Not sure yet. One of the other members here was suggesting Emperors over clear Ambassadors. They currently have a mix of old style and new style Evans EC2s and Tama and PDP clear resos.

Re: You won't believe what Andy did

And don't forget the Bri-wax that made him sing longer, louder, and probably higher than ever before!

Re: My 1st drum kit - PDP CX Series. Advice for an old newbie??

I just bought the same set too, only 5 piece. I'm still working on cymbals and new heads though.

Agree with Uncle Larry. Be nice to the wife. Be prepared to spend on her at least what you spend...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

When I was young, I learned to hate them because of the tips coming off. Then again, I also hated the wood tips splintering or the tips breaking off. I'd go through a pair of ProMark 2Bs in no time...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Saturday I bought a 5 piece set of PDP CX in sky blue onyx. No pics yet. Need to replace heads and snare wires. Currently set up as a 4 piece. Not sure if I'll find much use for the 10" rack tom.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

A true nickname comes from somebody else.

No nicks in the current band, but in one band I was "Truck" because one of the guitarist's little boy couldn't say "Chuck".
