Re: Ian Paice

In his own words " I'm a swing drummer that plays rock."
I won't argue with that.
The man can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Simon Kirke

Just listen to the straightforward hi-hat openings before the cymbal crashes on 'Moving on.
That's quality over quantity.

He really makes it rock.

A unique musician.

Re: Steve Gadd, And Ringo,

If you say to a Ringo fan (Generalisation) that you don't like his playing you get verbally
attacked, sometimes personally.
Ringo gets defended with venom. Why is that I wonder?

Re: Steve Gadd, And Ringo,

He would have left because Lennon/McCartney would too often be telling him what to do.
The songs were theirs, they called the shots.

Re: Have you ever "underplayed" because you fear embarassment or failure?

If things go astray the band need you to keep it real. If you go astray. it's crash & burn.

Re: Have you ever "underplayed" because you fear embarassment or failure?

That's it.
Quite a lot of my practice sounds bad because I'm learning to play things that I can't already play.

Re: Why is it the fashion to remove your low tom, and replace with a ride?

I have my two top toms to the left to get the ride in what I call the classic position, for want of a better description, Buddy Rich, Ian Paice position etc; then my two floor toms.

Re: Smaller Toms Compared To Larger

Maybe I'm a tad too cynical....I admit that, but fashions come & go.
Drum companies need new things for new/& old customers & smaller drum sizes are mainly that. Bolting 15" toms onto a cymbal stand...

Re: 14" floor tom or rack tom?

We don't treat gigs as rehearsals.
That's an insult to the folks you're playing too.

Work HARD at your rehearsals to impress at the gig.

We may change a few things but it's well oiled & very...
